If you are a user of Apple Motion, you've come to learn how important it is to have the latest and greatest graphics card.  Nvidia has finally come through with the Quadro FX 4800 for Mac.  It doesn't take long to Max--out the standard graphics card(s) that ship with a Mac Pro when running Apple motion. 

I can also imagine a greatly improved performance if you are an After Effects user.  For all you motion graphics artists out there, NVidia has finally answered your prayers!

This is the first graphics card for the Mac Pro that ships with 1.5 GB of video graphics memory.  It requires one PCI Express 2.0 slot, but the card is double wide, which means it will cover over an adjacent slot unless it is installed in the PCI Express slot. 

Although this card is supported with Final Cut Studio and Apple Motion, I noticed it is not listed as a pre-configured option when purchasing a Mac Pro.  This means you'll have to purchase the card seperately.  It also means you'll have to install the card on your own.

Make sure you're system can support this card.  It requires A minimum version of Mac OS X v10.5.7 or higher.  It also requires a Mac Pro with 1066MHz DDR memory or 800MHz DD2 FB-DIMM memory.  The card comes standard with a 3 year warranty with email/phone support.
