Hello,

Not sure if this is the exact forum, but I'll give it a try. I'm looking for a non-Quadro/non-FireGL notebook that can run Maya reasonably well. I know people often ask about running Maya using consumer (i.e. non-workstation) cards. Sure, Alias has a list of officially supported cards, but they're all expensive, and there are relatively few notebook choices using Quadro or FireGL graphics. I've read that Maya runs fine on Geforces, that there are some Nvidia driver versions that allow Maya to run without a hitch (I don't need to know about softmodding). Can anyone back this up? I'm actually running Maya (ver 5) on my desktop which has a 6600 GT, so I know it can work. I just wanted to get feedback from people who are using Maya with 6800/7800/7900 Go's (or even ATI equivalents) - anyone?

TIA
