Hi again. Still trying to sort this out. Have got a quote for a system using the 6600 and the Geforce 7950 but am now seeing some very competitively priced systems with 2 x GeForce 8800GT. Is that an option - can I somehow use this to get decent monitor output from Premiere / Cineform or is this what Mike is talking about as being a negative in terms of performance due to mutiple graphics cards / screens.

The 8800 card requires a weird workaround to get overlay to an external monitor- and even then only works on some systems. It also only supports YUV overlay, not RGB, so the Cineform workaround for the color shift many are experiencing does not work. All in all, not a good card for a Cineform system! GeForce really botched it on this one.

Thanks Carl, I am now looking at ATI 3850 for video, anyone got reasons why this might not be suitable?
