Gtx260 or nvidia quadro fx1800

Need your help please.

i had a workstation for 3d renderingapplications.
i have a gtx260 superclocked edition some time ago and after reading some information in the internet i though that a quadro fx would be a better choice. so i bought one.
unfortunally cinebench and others tell me that gtx260 performance is quite superior than quadro fx1800.
what do you professionals know about these? cinebench tells me that perfomance level in open.gl is twice than quadro fx1800. the quadro fx costed me twice as the gtx.
i have both for now and i have to sell one. what should i keep? i don't lnow what to do. in 2d performance quadro fx takes advantage but overall gtx wins. i don't see any gain in perfomance with quadro fx in sketchup or revit or even autocad.
please help me. your efforts are appreciated

thanks and best regards

  1. The FX1800 is just for CAD (Computer aided design) work, not Gaming. The GTX260 is purpose built for gaming, but will also do well in CUDA supported CAD programs.

    Keep the GTX260 as its a better 'all round' card, also if you don't see any advantage using the FX1800 for CAD work then thats another reason to sell it.
  2. Gaming: GTX260
    CAD: FX1800
    Both: GTX260
