Hi.
I'm pretty new as CG goes. I'm just getting to grips with Maya. The trouble is, my computer is a little slow and the graphics are terrible. I'm a gamer too so I was just wondering if anyone could recommend a good graphics card for future gaming and CG?
Is the 6800 Ultra a little excessive or will I notice a big difference with it? My problem at the moment is that with high resolution textured models or high detail the surfaces break up in Maya as if my card literally can't manage that much data and it just misses out parts of the surface. My current specs are:

Athlon 3000+
1gb DDR
GeForce 4 MX 440 (128mb Ram)
19" TFT
XP Home SP2
