I'm going to order a 3 ghz Quad-Core computer and I would like to know if the Nvidia FX 4500 card is worth the price compared to the ATI X1900 card. Anyone here using it with LW?

I bought my setup just a while ago and I wasn't very pleased with the fact that I had only those two graphics cards to seriously choose from. I decided to go with the X1900XT - FX 4500 isn't worth the price IMO. At first I thought to use this card only until I can get Nvidia 8800 to my Mac, but I've been quite happy with this. So, I can recommend X1900XT - although I haven't tried that FX-card...

The X1900 is a better deal. I've worked on workstations with both (and OGL performance is real important to animation) and the FX4500 really didn't add that much.
