Video Card help!!!

Hi, I am buying a new notebook and I need help choosing the video card. The options are: Dell precision m4700 with a FirePro M4000 or a Quadro K2000M, or an Alienware with a gaming video card like a GT or a HD 7970M.


The FirePro M400 has better benchmark than the Quadro K2000M and the HD 7970 has better benchmark than all.

I know the Quadro and FirePro are more professional cards but to what extend is better than a good gaming card?


The main softwares that i use are Zbrush, Maya and Mari.

If it helps make your decision, we run our Autodesk training labs on Dell M4700 with the Quadro K2000M card.  So long as you disable the onboard video so that it uses the video card, it runs like a champ.  You'll also want to install the latest WHQL certified driver from nVidia.com. 


So there ya go.  Officially tested...

NVidia Quadro Series 1000 (cheaper) or Series 2000 are fast !

It's a good choice ...
