    Quadros arent for gaming.Only for 3d apps like 3dsmax and such.But you can use the drivers tho with a modded inf like I am and they work great.:)

    Plus even the cheapest quadro card will cost you $350 and up.

    I seen a mod somewhere,either here or at guru3d that you can use rivatuner to use quadro driver to change your regular gaming card and make it a quadro.For instance turn a 9800gt into this card.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814133218

    Let me see if i can find it cause they said it works,cause this 3700 is basicly a 9800gt with quadro bios.
