ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I really dont want to dumb money into a quadro video card as i want to be able to play games as well. Does anyone have any personal experience running a GTX 560 ti graphics card with Maya 2012? If so how does it run?
Don't know really about the GTX560 ti, but until recently I had a GTX470 1280MB in my workstation and it worked fine. Only reason I upgraded to a Quadro 4000 was that I had a few big projects involving 2GB-6GB scene files with large polygon counts. So unless you regularly work with files that large, you should be fine with a GTX560 ti
