Hello, Im a professional videographer, as well as an independent filmmaker. I am writing because i am about to purchase a few of the new Apple Mac Pro's for my studio and i am contemplating buying the Quadro fx 5600 with the machines. I work with Final Cut Studio extensively (i.e. Final Cut Pro, Motion, Color, Compressor). Also, i work with Maya and Shake part-time. I am wondering about the amount of GPU power that the Quadro 5600 will bring me in my applications; mostly rendering, compressing, and encoding Uncompressed HD. Im working with DVC PRO HD mostly, cameras with genlock and i do all my professional work in Final Cut Studio (with some Shake and Maya) and previously Adobe Premier and After Effects. What i am looking for is speed, reliability, and quality out of these machines. Is the Quadro fx 5600 going to give me exceptional performance increases in render speed, RAM consumption, and effects work? If so, in my situation would it be smart to choose this card over a lower-end "gaming card" like the Geforce 8800GT? I figure looking at benchmarks, opinions and forums on mediocre sites is wasting my time, so a professional could assist me with the issue at hand. Thank you for your time.
