I do not have 500 to pay for a GPU so I likely am not geting one any time soon. This is just a poll.

EDIT:

I know Quadro is not good at playing games. I just put #3 there to see if any one thinks just because it's $4000 it would be good at games.

Edit2: I am not the best at coming up with names for things and I did this poll at 3am. The point is to see what % are doing what out of the ten awswers. I am editing some answers, because I was thinking I had to fill all ten.( Thats the kind of mistake you make at 3am.)

Dude, I think that your understanding is wrong:

1) The 3GB card is 3GB for NVIDIA 3D surround and is no different than the 1.5GB version if you are gaming on a single display.


2) The Quadro CAN NOT PLAY GAMES, people think that just because the Quadros are used to make the games, they can play them, WRONG!
The GTX 580, 570 and 560 Ti ALL have faster GPUs than the Quadro, Quadros will perform bad in games, the reason they are expensive is only for the drivers and will LAG in games. Quadros are only for workstations!- they are not at all over kill and can be beat by any card for less than $150 in games,
A Quadro 6000 will give you the GAMING performance of a GTX 460 for 30x the price!

I agree that this is a bad poll. You need to have choices that are similar. A poll between a GTX570 and a GTX590 is not going to tell you anything. Fewer choices would also make it easier to read and understand. You should have a poll with on GTX580 1.5GB, GTX580 3GB, 6850 CF and maybe a few other similar choices. You should also state a resolution for all voters to use.

I'll start a poll soon:

People that can't speak English should:
1- Stop making retarded polls.
2- Make more retarded polls.

And like stated above this poll doesn't make ANY sense. Quadro GPUs in what seems like a gaming oriented GPU poll kinda thing :S
