Oh ehm, the nvidia quadro fx 4800, the nvidia quadro fx 5800, the nvidia quadro 4000, the nvidia quadro 5000 and the nvidia quadro 6000... Compare them to the latest nvidia geforce cards and the latest ati radeon cards.
The CAD cards are expensive cards, so they should have LOTS of computing power for gaming also, right?

You realize how much these cards cost, right? The FX5800 (4GB memory) is about $3100. It's roughly comparable to the GTX 285 (1GB memory) which sells for about $260. Have a look at the specs & the price:

You tell me, is the extra $2840 worth it?

I'm asking you if it is better than those gaming cards, not if it is worth it... besides I'm not going to buy them for gaming, they're made for Computer aided design.
