So when maya is the biggest part of the work this card will have to do there is no way around the "professional" version.
That is huge. I spend alot of time waiting around for renders - the lost productivity of 5x longer wait would eat any financial savings in no time.*
If I recall, my reasoning (or justification) for going with the v5900 vs v7900 was that the difference in Maya benchmarks btw the two wasn't very great (and my budget was at its limit)

*batch rendering in maya does not seem to tie up the whole machine the way a "render-view" render in does. Just an anecdotal observation I made recently. Need to look into this (less someone already has)
