the FX1100 is the same price... give or take a few dollars depending on location of purchase?!

Thatīs pretty high. A 980 XGL costs around 570 Euroīs here in germany, so if that is the cheapest price for you I would think about getting one from the US because I donīt think that it would exceed that price with taxes and stuff. Quadro FX 700 is a nice part too, have a look at it. I think that the 1100 is not worth the price, should be more in the 600 range now, so if I were in your position I would try to grab the FX 700.

Umm... I bought my 980XGL over a year ago and didn't pay anywhere near $900...

It's currently $497 @ Monarch
