Yeah, the crazy thing is, those workstation cards are virutally the same as the desktop/gaming cards, expect they use completely differnet drivers. I'm not sure how they can even justify those prices.

I believe the cost more because they do in-card rendering. General Video cards don't do that. Rendering a scene in 3ds Max, for instance, is done by the processor only, unless you have a quadro or FireGL card.
