My friend wants to build a new computer or upgrade his current build, and his is currently struggling to use programs like Maya, Mudbox, Z Brush, etc.

I'm expecting a quad-core to up his power, but I am also assuming a new video card would help a lot. Which video card would you recommend for using programs like this?

Also, what are some of the main components in a computer related to the performance of these programs?

For those programs, CPU is more important than a GPU...
BTW, what is your friend's current video card?

I was thinking something along the lines of this:

Since the Quadros are a bit too expensive.

i have a Asus hd 5850 1gig and i also do graphic modeling and unreal UDK Development Kit
for games and it does the job very well :p  Workstation Cards are too expensive for me LOL
