I thought you wanted a gpu that can help you use Game Engines, while also allowing you to play/test them out. The UT engine is pretty nice, a gaming card will work fine for such things. The only slugdowns you may get is in maya/3ds max, but it's not as bad as you think.
With the psu you have, a 460 shouldn't have problems working either.
o well....thx i think i will get 460 as soon as i have time !!! THX
anyway... 1 more question ...just curious , does workstation card boost the performance in UT engine ??? or this card is good for maya/3dsmax only ???
sorry bout noob question ..
I never saw an increase from my old quadro in game engines. Maya does show a slight difference, mainly in speeds. Are you going to be building models and randomly spinning them around real fast? Cause then you'd notice.
