need some experienced advice. i'm looking for a graphics card for my editing/development system and the videoguys recommended fx 1700 is beyond my budget. editing and compositing represent about 20% of my time, so it's not the absolutely most important part of my system. i'm really trying to stay around the $250 or so range.
i saw this review on the radeon 4850 x2
will this card work with avid media composer even though avid won't officially support anything other than nvidia? the videoguys system recommendations mention ati cards by brand, but no specific models.
thnx for all help!
