I think this falls in the category of warez. Anyone who spent that much on maya would not have a low end gfx card. For this app, gaming cards are low end. I set up a dual pIII win 2000pro rig not too long ago with a fire gl x1 256mb card and had the chance to test it with a r9700pro. It was not up to the task at all like it was with the fire gl.
Bottom line, it's not meant for a gfx card with poor open gl support.
