Its pretty much useless for gaming, so I doubt anyone here would have one. Want to make a movie like the Pixar guys, then sure....

HELL NO!!! I could get a QuadCore OC'd computer with a good GFX card for that much. My god. Let me fill you in as to why:

Spoiler: Show
Cards built like that aren't designed to play video games. Yes they can at some fair rates but they are designed to work with ├╝ber 3d demanding programs like a 3D CAD program, a 3D design program, Cinema 4D and 3D Studio Max, Apophysis, and many other programs. Cards like that are aren't even in the ball park for gaming cards. Take nVidias 8800GTX graphics card which has 768MB of GDDR3 video RAM. Yes, ATi's card that you listed has 1GB of RAM but its at a slower clock speed. The GPU and RAM on the 8800GTX runs at 630MHz and 2000MHz respectively compared to ATi's 400MHz RAM speed and I don't know the GPU's speed. So what I'm getting at is, if your going to play games, get 2 8800GTX's or 8800Ultras. If your planning on doing alot of 3D and maybe some of that 4D stuff, get the ATi 5500. Heres a comparison nVidia 8800GTX
  • GPU = 575+ MHz
  • RAM = 1800+ MHz GDDR3 768MB
  • Interface = 384-bit
  • Price = 300-750 US Dollars
ATi Quadro FX5500
  • GPU = unknown
  • RAM = 400MHz GDDR2 1GB
  • Interface = 256-bit
  • Price = 2,299 US Dollars on newegg
GDDR2 = Older technology GDDR3 = Much faster than GDDR2 Like I stated above, FX5500 = GFX demanding programs like CAD, 8800GTX = Games, 1337 h4kcing and n00b pwning. For the price of 1 FX5500 I could get between 2 and 4 8800GTX cards depending on who manufactured them. Was this post on topic?????? Lol.

Precisely. *See Spoiler*

As S.T.A.L.K.E.R. said, Quadro cards are workstations card, they'd be entirely useless for gaming. I'd feel incredibly sorry for someone that wastes $3,000 on that thinking its going to max out all his/her games.

I actually got into an agruement (which I won) against my friend today at school on something that was similar as this. It was about Xenon processors being used for gaming. Uh let me think about that....NO!!!! Yes they will work but they aren't desiged for gaming as some of their core architecture is different from C2D's, C2X's, and C2Q's.
