Summary: I bought this to work with programs like Maya and similar, but on the side I also wanted it to be capable to run games, and it's been really great. I'm not saying it would run every game at full graphics, but it does a great job (even though its not a gtx).

Summary: Perfect match for your workstation, if you are Architect, Engineer or Video Editor. One of the best options comparing power vs price. Professional hardware for professional users It has 2 Displayport outputs, recommend to order converters from Displayport to HDMI, this due that most monitors come with HDMI inputs. The DVI output is convenient for backwards compatibility.
Summary: The NVIDIA Quadro 4000 graphics card for Mac has been on the market for awhile now, which doesn't make this review antiquated; in fact, having lived and worked with it for a while now has given me a truer opportunity to review it then when briefly using any product and writing an article based upon limited time usage. For the last two years I have been using an NVIDIA FX4800 graphics card in my 2 x 2.66 GHz 6 Core Intel Xeon Mac Pro with 20 GB ram.
Summary: I was skeptical of the performance benefits of using an Adobe-certified NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics card vs. a consumer/games-oriented model. I used both NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon graphics cards in the past, many of which appear faster on paper than their professional counterpart. I've been running the NVIDIA Quadro K4000 for a month now, and so far I'm stunned at the difference in performance. PhotoShop never crashes anymore.
