Replacing Quadro FX 1500

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Time for a video card upgrade, I been using PNY Quadro FX 1500 for the last 3years and I want a new card for my After effects and Boris Blue Open GL accelerated previews..

the FX 1500 is OpenGl 2.0 so I wonder will any newer video card with OpenGL 3.0 be better for my needs? At the time I paid around $400 but this time I can only spend $50 tops,

with this in mind is this a better card?

or any suggestions would be appreciated I dont have a lot of time to do my own research..

Thanks a lot folks !!

a $50 workstation card is going to probably worse then what you currently have.
