currently using the above video card under Maya or 3D Studio Max? If so could you please let me know how is it handling these application. I'm trying to find a good all-rounder graphic card that could easly operate in 3D, output to VCR and at the same time stay under the AUD$600 or US$300 mark. Radeon 8500 was my other joice but after reading some of the reviews I think I won't even bother asking. Your help would be greatly appriciated.
