Default Re: 8800GTX vs Quadro FX 4500 performance on large models

@Lithorus: When I (once or twice) tried using a 7800GTX before we got the Quadros (same models) I had exactly the same problem with very slow frame rates. I actually remember thinking it was busting the display list memory size limit (if there is such a thing).

@cohen: No, I'm not using VBO's right now, I'm using display lists (outdated?). If that's an issue, I'd love to know because I can start looking at switching to (static) VBOs...non-trivial, but would be worth it.

I have also heard that VBO and triangle-strips are mutually exclusive. Anyone know if that's true?

Thank you both for the replies.
