OK THATS IT! I have been officially talked out of a workstation GPU! I was gonna go with the Quadro 2000 because that is what is in the budget (the 4000 costs like double), But now reading these forums I may go with a gaming card. YOU GUYS WIN! So what do i go with. Doing some research I have selected the top 5 below that I cant decide on. Let me know what you guys think. My tasks will consist of doing video editing, After Effects, and light 3d modeling (nothing to heavy.) Let me know. Obviously if you also feel that the workstation GPU is a better choice dont feel pressured to say that either.

Thanks again guys. Much appreciated

those gpus make sense only if you're going to game on that pc.
If you do only work tasks you described, those four gpus wouldnt be much of use. And as adobe programs can make use of nvidia cuda cores to accelerate some features, it would make sense to get nvidia workst. card.
