ATI video cards

Has anyone used any of the ATI Firepro cards and what do you think of them? I will be using it for ACAD 2011 and possibly Revit. I am currebtly using a Quadro FX1500 and the fan noise is driving me crazy (even using software to control it, it is still too loud). I was considering the ATI Firepro V4800 or the Quadro FX580, but am leaning towards the ATI for a change.

Does anyone have any REAL experience (not just looking at specs) with either of these cards and what do you think of them?

I'm using a FirePro V5800 with AutoCAD2011.  No problems except Logitec's SetPoint mouse driver will occasionally cause items on a palette to disappear until you close and re-open the palette, but I blame Logitec for that.   I can hear the fan, but wouldn't say it's loud.
