Please help!!

I need to know which card is preferable to buy for the best graphics use (maya) - though I want the computer mainly for student work;
radeon 9800 pro
radeon 9800 pro all-in-wonder
128MB nVIDEA GeForce FX 5600 Personal Cinema
256MB nVidea GeForce FX 5900 Ultra
any ideas?

student work - cheapest one.

Gaming? nVidea GeForce FX 5900 Ultra

I agree with Jester2K II, fx5900 is the dog's dangly bits.

hi Jennynot I have built several computers for a company who does C.G movies I fitted ati fire gl cards they work great for the maya program you are going to use...and cheaper than the nvidea cards suggested
