Hi Guys,

I've currently got a Quadro FX3800 in my system which has started causing me some serious issues crashing out etc, i've come to the conclusion that my card is faulty or has developed a fault etc.. as it's well out of warranty now so i'm in the market for a replacement and need some recommendations on decent high spec card that Vegas will take full advantage of?

Many Thanks

There is no need or a "high end" graphic card. If you want the best for Windows 7 Pro x64 & VP12, get 1 or 2 GTX580 if you can fit that into your computer case and your power supply is strong enough.
