Hmm, with the GPU's you are choosing how will you be using them?
Will you be using this for true design applications such as 3D Modelling, CAD work, video production etc..?

The only real performance advantage you'll see over a traditional gaming card is in those applications (and similarly-categorized software that can take advantage of GPU acceleration) , otherwise you'll want to grab a gaming card.

Ah I see, according to some quick research I would recommend the Quadro FX 1800 according to performance benchmarks spread around.
I would not consider myself an expert when it comes to workstation cards though so you may want to wait for further replies or do more research.
