Video card - Get this one - Its newer, OpenGL 4.0 http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/512MB-ATI-FirePro-V3800-...(x16)-GDDR3-1-x-Display-Port-1-x-DL-DVI-Boxed This would also be very good though - http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/1GB-ATI-FirePro-V4800-PC...(x16)-GDDR5-2-x-Display-Port-1-x-DL-DVI Can't find your answer ?
