suggest buying a gaming card first, trying it out with your particular software, and returning it if you get too many viewport bugs.
workstation cards are priced terribly, and if you aren't going to be stressing the computer as much as a professional studio, i'm willing to bet the gaming card will handle your needs perfectly well.
^+1 u might want to consider what eaclou said: "if u aren't going to be stressing the computer as much as a professional studio" then a cheap gaming card will be okay...
grrr. back to step 1 lol. Hm....I was reading some reviews on newegg and they were saying they couldn't tell the difference performance wise between gaming and workstation card, but i guess this is somewhat varying due to what software one is using. What to do, what to do. Thank you for the feedback.
