hi
i have read several threads around here and on google but i would like to have some opinions about the fx500 for 3dsmax + combustion + premiere !

I am not interested in games, so i don't really want some of the gforce cards, i just want something professional for 3d (architecture) and for video editing.

thanks!

ps: the price for the fx500 is around 380 euro here in Paris. That's around the maximum of money i want to put into a videocard ;)

It's a good card. Personally i think a Quadro4 could be enough for your purposes though. Plus, until nvidia updates Maxtreme, Quadros will be slow in max 6. Your claim about gaming cards is debatable obviously.

Here's what you get when Maxtreme works (as you can see earlier Quadros perform somewhat better):
