It's different. The Quadro is for video rendering and editing. Almost like making a movie like Toy Story or Iceage.

I wasnt aware there were specific cards for different things!
If thats the case i need to elaborate, "The best card for GAMING"? the two i said i liked above look good for gaming?

Plus with a top end card what kind of psu would be needed? 450-500w+?

Just as good as any card, AutoCAD uses software rendering.

The hardware rendering engine is broken.
