Geforce GTX570 vs. Quadro cards

I'm putitng a system together and trying to decide whether to go Quadro or use a Geforce GTX570. The system will be used to put together 3D models that have anywhere from 13-100 parts and we will be running FEA analysis's on these parts. Will a Quadro like the 4000 prove to be much faster for these types of loads? There seems to be no information online showing parformance differences between Geforce and Quadro cards though I see people post in forums that they have switched from using Quadro to Geforce. Any help would be appreciated

dont bother with quadros (unless you're using any other software that needs OpenGL, eg other cad SW).

 

it's all been explained to death many a time (especially by myself)...  search for OpenGL and/or Quadro and should get a load of info.  sorry to be blunt, but it's frustrating typing and re-typing the same info over and over.

I'd go with a 2GB 570 GTX.  It has a Win7 rating of 7.9.  GTX 560 is less expensive with a rating of 7.8

 

It's the card family I recommend. Both are also rated for Open/GL 4.1

Ok guys I have a little issue. Just built a new rig, see spec below:

 

Performance graphics issue.jpg

 

And installed Inventor 2012 on a vanallia install. Iinstalled the OS, Win 7 64bit, updated windows, instaled motherborad and video drviers, then installed inventor 2012, installed sp1 for inventor 2012 64bit

 

The issue is the toolbar ribbon is missing on the graphics? See below

Any ideas? Thanks

This looks suspect:

There is something wrong with your drivers / card / installation, unless you really only have some old version of DirectX...

The 2 screen dumps are showing different DirectX versions?

To have a graphics performance like that, I suspect that you have a power supply problem with the above-board power supply to your graphics card. You should have at least one power supply cable going directly to your graphics card.
