it's a toss up between .. ati fireGL vs nvidia quadro4 ..
- depends on what is on sale ... regular retail is $1,000+ each
but, some of the newer quadro4 seems to be faster than fireGL series
- its fun to learn about installing nvidia drivers
and old drivers and new drivers and clean up their sloppy(broken)
installers so that dri/drm all works right in stereo 3D
