Strange, getting lots of people on other lists going to ATI...But to answer 
your question, how much are you willing to sink on a graphics card? The top 
is the Quadro (aimed more at proffessional video types), but I can guarantee 
its about $400. The top of the line Nvidia card aimed at PC workstations is 
the Geforce 4 TI 4600 is about $200.
