    The "sweet spot" in CAD oriented Graphics Cards?

    Hi all,
    I'm looking for suggestions on a graphics card NOT for gaming. I'll be using it with various Autodesk and Adobe Creative Suite software.

    This will be my first PC build, and starting from scratch. I just got the i7 920 cpu ($200) and now need to figure out the graphics card. I intend to get a mobo with SLI or Crossfire compatability. I'll buy one GPU now and get a second one in the future to pair them up as an upgrade when needed.
    (I'm planning a similar future stepping/upgrade system with the RAM and HD, better for my budget.)

    I want to spend about $150 but I would gladly raise it if the "sweet spot" is really sweet.

    Also what is the current score between ATI/AMD and NVIDIA?

    And is there a better site to go to for non-gamers?
