    64,000 pounds.....and they are tearing themselves apart. We only have 40 of them. Most of the time at least 13-15 are down.

    Here's a sample of my buddies graphics work. Thats the back of my toolbox. He also did the graphics on the tool boxes in the bus picture.

    Re: Graphics System

    I'm probably a bit late but on this but any reason why no one ever specs out a workstation with FireGL or Quadro cards? Aren't those more specific to a workstation environment?

    Whoops! Backup! Just saw the "sample" workstation specs up top. Had NO IDEA quadros has gotten so expensive on that level!

    Re: Graphics System

    Most of the time, I'd still recommend standard GeForce or Radeon cards over the Quadro or FireGL equivalent due to pricing.

    Any reason you guys would say to not do so?

    Only from personal experience, but I'd take a FireGL first, standard Radeon second. Reason for that is that I just spend a ton on a Sun workstation with a pair of Quadro FX3500 cards in it. Long story short, I don't like those two FX3500's. They don't measure up to Fire-GL X3 256 cards that I am extreemly familiar with in terms of fine line rendering. I yanked them out and stuck in a pair of X1950 Pros 512's, definitely better for what I do. Based on that experience/finding coupled with ATI's long standing reputation in true engineering workstations, I am ordering a pair of FireGL V5600/512 cards. Speed isn't my concern. Rendering quality (non multimedia) is.
