Question assembling a new computer + need help with choosing a grpahic card

Hey, I want to assemble a new computer for me, mainly that will work and render smooth and fast Maya

My budget is around 1500$
this is what I have in idea so far

Processor: Intel Core i7 3770 3.4Ghz s1155 8MB
RAM: Corsair 4x4GB
Hard Disk: Seagate 2TB

Now on Grpahic card I was thinking of getting Gigabyte GTX660 OC 2GB.
I've heared that quadro is better for working in 3D because of the CUDA hardware, but the best quadro I can afford currently is PNY Quadro 600 1GB. Which one should I go for?

Any rate comment or idea would be much helpful

Thank you

Go for GTX660, instead of of Quadro 600.
Nowadays, Quadro, are not the heroes of 3D apps, anymore.
