quadro or geForce
I always get different opinion from people, why didn't i come to this forum before...

Anyways, since I work a lot on Maya and I am planning to upgrade my machine, this time which gfx card should I put on?
Quadro or GeForce?

I will be using a lot of physx related stuff and working on viewport mode inside Maya.

Right now I am planning to get Quadro 4000, with i7 and intel extreme Mobo...
any suggestions?

Get the Quadro, it makes a world of difference for professional purpose

cool...
that's what I thought until I read a blog, by a professional vfx artist.
here is the link.

Basically.. with a Quadro when you render the pixels are at 100%, therefore more time but more detail. With a geforce the detail is lower but the rendering is faster.

GeForce ignore triangles that are smallest than 3 pixel, the Quadro not.
Quadro cards has a set of specifically optimized drivers that are developed by a dedicated team, therefore it can offer more quality alongside more performance, in case of large geometry scene/object the speed-up vs GeForce are incredible, especially on Fermi based Quadro (because some of the parallel geometry setup capability are locked on Geforce cards).

Another vote for the Quadro , a Physix card ...

So quadro it is then... for me

How's its performance while gaming?

I believe Centaurius & Stefem are talking out of there arses! It is all about viewport performance and fast input reaction..
plus compatibility with professional(old) OpenGL features.

GTX 4## & 5## Are, in there current state horrible cards for Maya do to crippled OpenGL functionality.
A older card like GTX 285 is about 10 times faster in Maya viewport.
The loose test i did in Maya v2009,2011,2012 viewport resulted in:

GTX 570 (My current card at home)
500.000 polygons @ 5-7 fps.

GTX 285 (My previous card at home)
2.500.000 polygons @ 25-32 fps.

Quadro 5000 (the card i use at work)
40.000.000 polygons @ 40-46 fps.

If you are serious about making CG work in Maya, i would recommend getting ether a Quadro(best but expensive as hell) or a GTX 285 or bellow.

Great, thnx for the detailed info Noxlupi

So quadro 4,000 101% for sure.

Like i asked above, how is its gaming performance?
