NVidia Quadro FX1700 - still relevant card?

Is the nVidia Quadro FX1700 still a relevant card? I think I found one at a good deal ($75), but I want to be sure before I buy it. If anyone could give me their opinion I would appreciate it.

  1. That depends...

    IF you want to use it in a professional way (in a workstation) then buy it.

    But if you want to use it for plain gaming than you have better cards for that money.
  2. Not bad for workstation use and it looks like a 8600gt but uses the slower GDDR2. For the basics and cuda it will be fine.
  3. I ended up getting the card in a Gateway E6610 tower and XP OS. I pulled the video card out and put it in my computer with an AMD Phenom II 920 quad-core processor and new Corsair TX 650 watt power supply. The graphics seem to run smoother in Photoshop so far. I plan to also use it with AutoCad and Sketchup so we'll see how it performs there. I figure its not a bad deal for the card and extra tower to play with for a novice like myself.
