Hi Aaron,

Which card did you go with ?

At this point I'm real tempted to go with the better card for that break in
price... but I wonder if the performance is worth the difference.

I went with the 750 XGL. I wasn't really sure either. From what I read
here, I'm not sure the price dif is worth the performance. But such a
deal I couldn't pass up.


Also, it seems to me that the people having the most problems with R6,
are the ones with these Quadro 4 cards. Has any else noticed that?
Is anyone having fairly good preformancwe with Quadro 4on R6? If so what
OS and driver?

I hope I didn't throw away my money.

I went for a 750 for my P4. I've got a 550 in my P3
and I love it. More is better.

This leads to the question of how much better is the 750XGL than an ELSA
GLoria III?

p.s. those retail prices are exaggerated. real price at compusa is $285.68, and $676.22 respectively. -Joe

Those prices are MSRP = Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Prices
Which are almost always higher than what stores actually sell for.

I am running the 40.72 driver for the NVidia cards under the archive section, it is beta until MS approves it. This driver rocks!

i know what msrp stands for - but they put that on there like you getting a better deal then you really are. kinda like when a company gives out a catalog for free, and puts a $4 price tag on the cover. still a good deal though. -Joe
