i have that exact card, the 980XGL, and it really depends what application you are going to use it with...

in max with Maxtreme it is a fantastic card, and a great deal... maya seems faster, but i use that far less so i can't judge.

Try and shy away from the ATI cards, even the professional cards, more users end up pulling their hair out because of the glitchy drivers

Wouldn't going from a Fire to a Quadro 980 be almost a "side-grade", instead of an upgrade?

I don't think I would consider the 980 a BAD card (I actually prefer Nvidia cards), but isn't the FireGL a decent card already??

Check out Tomshardware and see if you can find an article that compares those 2 cards head-to-head, cuz honestly there are just soooooo many different video cards/chips out that I can keep them all straight.
