i have a quadro fx 3400 and it works great, the school i go to ( columbus college of art and design) has 30 machines that use that same card and they work great. GO with that one or a higher end version, and also its sli so you can hook up two woo baby 512 ddr3 but i know you can get higher end cards with more memory but they are cheap on ebay right now, thats where i got mine so yea check out that card its cheap and works very well in mudbox dont know about max though and it works nice in modo and body paint

Do not get a NVIDIA Quadro FX 3450. I'm really disapointed by its performance, especially in mudbox.
