All,

I currently run a rig for multi use, both gaming and graphical/image work on Adobe, with some moderate encoding.

My current rig is a i5 2500K, P67 Mobo, 32GB DDR3 with a 560Ti 1GB GPU (further details in my signature). I'm thinking of setting up a second system to be exclusively game related as currentrig runs my media stuff with ease and probably slightly over kill BUT should I remove the 560Ti from this and put this in my gaming rig (to be built) and replace it with a NVIDIA Quadro 600 1GB or just leave as is and get another 560Ti for my gaming rig when I build it. Sadly stretching beyond a 560Ti isn't an option financially, other parts for a secondary system are already available to hand utilising a i5 2400 and H6 Mobo with 8GB RAM.

Again, don't have an issue with the 560Ti currently running CS5 so more a case of would the NVIDIA Quadro 600 1GB be noticeably better.

Quadro 600 would be a very much downgrade for games, so I'd suggest you get another GTX 560 Ti.

If I go with a Quadro 600 I am not bothered about game performance as it will just become my exclusive "media/work" PC. Reading again, perhaps I didn't post my original thread as accurately as I could have. I may have made it more confusing by mentioning I am making a second rig, apologies.

Would I notice a signficant difference in media work between these two configs:

i5 2500K
P67 Mobo
32 GB 1600 RAM
560Ti 1GB

OR

i5 2500K
P67 Mobo
32 GB 1600 RAM
Quadro 600 1 GB

I doubt it. The performance would be around at similar level, I guess.

Cheers Sunius, will flip a coin on the day and go with whichever is cheapest
