I just recently purchased an ASUS GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II, I know its a great graphics card for gaming but is it also good for vray rendering with 3ds max?

If is hobbyist type rendering Geforce cards work well enough....or using in a production environment, where time is money, and spending over $500 .... invest in a Quadro

Man, I'm pretty sure VRay doesn't use your graphics card for rendering. I don't think any production rendering engine does. Most likely depend on your CPU.

Vray now can use GPU to render

My mistake...that's good news though, I wish mental ray could use my GTX580!

For view port viewing in Max and gaming what would you suggest with a budget of 400$? search for my posts if you need more detail I have asked the question there as well

You could get a GTX570 for those $$. However I have not seen one advertised with more than 1280 mb VRAM...

actually quadros aren't fast...

they are stabler and will really give you rendered result as you would get from CPU rendering. but they are not fast as gaming one. buy geforce with many Cudas(I guess GPU vray uses them, at least iRay does use..)
