Great card! Outperforms Nvidia in most tests!
Pros: - 1GB GDDR5 memory
Cons: - Overkill for most CAD users
Other Thoughts: In most performance benchmarks, including Tom's, you will find that the FirePro v8700 outperforms the Nvidia FX5600 and FX4800 cards most of the time. In some benchmarks the the v8700 outperforms even the pricey $3K Nvidia FX5800. If you want to pay a lot more for an Nvidia workstation card that does not outperform this one, then knock yourself out. I look at the numbers not the labels.

Pros: The cost is high but for what it does it is well worth it. Works brilliantly with AutoCADD , Premier, ETC. No driver or compatability issues. This thing blows our 3 SGI workstations out of the water, and we have it running in Vista :)
Cons: Absolutely none.
Other Thoughts: This is NOT a gamers card keep in mind. This is for high end video rendering for movies, televistion, etc...
