    Lol, it's a nice one. Actually these types of cards are mandatory if you're working with 3D animation/Cad/Movies. You don't game with these things, lol. I have serious doubts even the high end games could make full use of it.

    I wonder who would buy this or need this kind of power. And I wonder what kind of power supply it needs to run 0_0

    Well, it needs 189W itself I believe. Depending on the rest of your configuration (and what you're doing), somewhere near 1000W would be what I would look at for in a supply (considering the kind of workstations these cards would be put in). Again, they aren't meant for playing around on Crysis or any other game. These are workhorses for the design/film industry.

    The only difference between Quadro and desktop gaming cards is....more memory, drivers that support Professional 3D applications, price. Quite a hefty price for some drivers...:(

    In the old days we could turn our game cards into Quadro/FireGL cards, Nvidia and ATI/AMD put an end to that with hard locks on the chips.

    Costs as much as a cheap car, and more than most gaming machines!!
