In the engineering world “workstation” class cards have a different set of drivers then “gaming” cards. nVidia has their “Geforce” line of “gaming” cards and their “Quadra” class of workstation cards for years. Everything I have ever read basically says you pay for the certified drivers and support with the workstation cards. For example. Autodesk products will report that you are not using proper hardware if you use a Geforce card but it has no issues with the corresponding Quadra card with the same engine and memory. This seems to be less of an issue with Win7.SteveMann is correct in that Sony Veags doesn’t seem to specify a certain card, on the other hand, Adobe is recommending the CUDA certified cards for After Effects, etc. I just recently built a new system. To be safe I went with an nVidia GeForce GTX 285 which is CUDA certified for Adobe. Vegas seems to love it and my engineering programs are not coughing at it either.
