Default Re: GTX 280 and Maya Support

Can only speak of my experience with my current 8800GT.

Which works fine now, with Vista, and knowing some workaround for some issues.
For example selecting highpoly objects was very slow until I found adding this line to the Maya.env file.
set environment variable MAYA_NO_VERTEX_ARRAY_SELECT = 1

Apparantly a 8800 specific issue.

Btw Iīm hearing the GTX 280 can be somewhat loud.
If Maya causes the fan to spin up, it could be an annoyance to work with that noise.
Gaming you often use headphones, or atleast have alot of sound from the game, so its prolly less of an issue there.
