That would be pretty amazing if I could run Maya on one screen via the Firepro and have another screen hooked up and running on the Radeon (that would have to run at 8x though) but that sounds too good to be true, again, trying might be worth it.
Unfortunately everyone I know runs Macs
Illustrators and photographers. but Macs haven't kept up enough for 3D stuff, which is why I switched last year.
I never registered my card, the link to register it didn't exist when I went to do it online, so I don't get their emails.
P.S. I've still requested a code for the W7000 discount but it says you'll only be considered if your business is 10+ workstations
it's weird because the US one has no such requirement.
