What about the ati POWERCOLOR X800GTO256MBDDR3 Radeon X800GTO 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card? This says its good for games but is it? And then is it good for 3-d graphics applications?
I am thinking about building a pc capable of running high-end 3-d graphics programs such as those used in game development and such. I also want to be able to play high end video games. Would the Fire gl graphics card be best for both? Or would an nvidia Geforce 7900 or similar card be the best route? What advice would you have in building a computer capable of being a workstation and gaming computer? Is a workstation just a better gaming computer? Thank you for any help!
