What's the Best Card for Maya 2009

Q1: I'm looking for a card to animate in Maya in. Something that will make the response time in the viewport faster. I know not all cards work well or at all with maya. Anyone got any suggestions?

right now I'm looing at the

GeForce GTX260
GeForce 9800 GTX+ 1GB

or something in that price range.

I heard maya didn't work well with
geforce 8800gt

Q2: Also would SLI/Crossfire and two cheaper cards be a better option for Maya? Does maya even support that?

I'm hardware retarded so don't laugh at me. :)
Thanks guys,

  1. There are specific cards that are designed for rendering, they are the Nvidia Quadro FX range and the ATI FireGL range.

    What else will you be using your system for? Will it be dedicated? It is good to know this because if you are also gaming on it then a Quadro FX card is not a good idea. If you are only going to stressing your card when rendering then they are probably the way to go....same with the ATI FireGL cards.

    Have a look at:

    NVIDIA Quadro FX 3450
    NVIDIA Quadro FX 1700
    NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500

    Don't know much about them myself.....
