Hello guys, i need help deciding wich video card is better for me, i use 3d max and photoshop for rendering large interior scenes, i'm not going to use it for gaming or anyting, so i wouldn't like to spend extra money for something i dont need, i just want the view ports to run smooth and increase the render speed as much as possible, my system is the asus p6x58d-e mobo with the core i7-950 and 6gb ram 1600,,, the options i've seen so far are:
Hmm... I would say the quadro, because those workstation cards have drivers built specifically for professional 3d (such as 3d max), but seeing as the 580 is such a weak card (32 cuda cores) vs the 460 (336 cuda cores), I'm not sure which is better.
From my personal experience, weaker Quadro FX cards are just not worth the money. If you're spending about $200 on a Quadro FX for 3d work then you'd be better off getting a Geforce card. For that price range a GTX 460 or 465 will out perform a Quadro FX card in pretty much all scenarios.
