    Quadro FX3800 or GeForce GTX580???

    I know neither of these cards are cutting edge, but they're what I have available for a system I'm putting together.
    I know for a long time Quadro was the only way to fly, is that still true?

    Quadro FX3800 or GeForce GTX580?

    Thanks for any help,

    Hey Lash,

    Officially, yes, but as Carlos says, lots of people use GeForce, too.  If you need it to run right away, I'd go with the Quadro.

    ciao,
