GTX vs Quadro

Thanks guys for replies !

I used a quadro fx 570 at 256 MB for working in a cad software somekind of 3d city ,
the modeling was ok like everything in working spacebut when I want to render scene it stucked !
I cant render the scene ! the CPU was an intel dual core.

Anyway, Im a quadro fun but my friends says it is expensive for jts performance.

can you tell me wich processor and mother board fit good with nvidia quadro 2000 ?

I have this build in mind :

-intel core i7 3820 at 3.6 ghz
- Asus P9X79 socket 2011 or Gigabyte GA -X79- UP4 socket 2011
-nvidia quadro 2000 D from PNY
-2 x 16 GB DDR 3 1600 Mhz Corsair
-2TB hard drive -Seagate 7200 baracuda
-SSD -120 GB intel 330 sata III
-case - antec or thermaltake ?
-power suply - evermax or thermaltake ?
Genius bravo !

here's another analogy for u...
You can move your belongings in a Ferrari and probably even do it... That is right up until u get to the big stuff which you either can't move effectively or at all but with a nice moving van youll be able to handle those large loads and still make good time. In fact in the long run make better time.

As for render speed u may need more cores/more CPU speed.

Just go with the best quadro and CPU u can afford. Don't know specs on 2000 but aim for 256 buswidth if possible and at least 1gb size. Gpu can always be upgraded

As for more CPU cores and Quadro buswidt (256 ) I agree ! I will buy CPU and video card

Newegg has some deals on the Sandybridge chips- Haven't researched them too too much but I doubt aside from improved energy usage and video performance they're better- and those things don't matter for you.

at least quadcore- and at least over 3.0 GHZ even if with turbo boost.

what about a xeon E5-2600 instead Core i7 ?
Genius bravo !

why animation studious works with 2 video cards ,for example: NVIDIA Quadro 6000 (6 GB) and
NVIDIA Tesla C2075 6 GB PCIE ?
Genius bravo !

The Tesla cards work well with iRay.

Go for the dual 2600 series chips if you can afford them. Anything from the 2650 on up will offer more rendering performance than the i7 6 core. If your just building a single socket system, go for the i7.
