For your apps, the FireGL is more suited for the task than the CFed 4870s. That being said, both solutions are more than capable than meeting your needs. Really a matter of budget more so than one of performance (unless you are doing VERY detailed CAD/3D/etc work and then the FireGL is the clear better alternative).

Good luck!

thanks for the reply

budget is not an issue as i already have all these cards at my disposal.

my CAD isn't super detailed (depends on what you define as detailed) but does, often, contain A LOT of polys...

i think i'll stick with the FireGL
