If those makers didn't answer your questions then how will they do when you have a real problem. You may have shown good reason not to do business with them.
Hi, in need of a new workstation (barely any gaming), and I get a good discount from both (and only) Falcon-NW and Voodoo, and I've got a few questions.
1) Intel Core 2 Quad Extreme X6800 2.93GHz VS. 2x AMD Opteron Processor Dual Core Model 875
I need the best for CAD, Maya, 3ds max, photoshop, etc. My guess is the Opteron, but I'm not sure.
2) 2x nVidia GeForce 8800Ultra 768MB VS. 2x NVIDIA Quad FX 5500 XP2
Again, "I need the best for CAD, Maya, 3ds max, photoshop, etc." Does the Quadro offer directx 10 capabilites? I'm not sure the exact BIOS differences between the two cards. Would the 8800 offer a lot less (m)CAD performance, or only a little bit less? *note* xeon (aka core 2 quad) chip doesn't offer SLI with the Quadro, would this lesson my performance?
The chip and card are the only disputes between the two, thanks for all the help, hope some 3D professionals can help me out here!
