ATI Radeon HD 3870 graphics card

Is anyone using the ATI Radeon HD 3870 Mac & PC Edition?

I'm currently using the ATI Radeon X1900 and its acting up a bit and the reviews of this new video card claim that it woks much better with the Pro Apps than the NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT or the XT1900.

I use Color and Motion a lot and anything I can do to speed up that workflow would help.

I purchased/installed the card last week. It has been working fine so far. I can't say that I saw any kind of blazing performance increase, but it does work better with multiple displays. You will have to connect an extra power source to the card, but that was about it. Software installation was smooth.
