  1. Hi!

    I´m looking for a new computer for a familiar, and I´m trying to find out about the Nvidia GeForce vs. Quadro. These are the options:

    NVIDIA® GeForce® 8700M GT 512MB DDR3
    NVIDIA® GeForce® 8800M GTX 512MB DDR3[+275,- US$]
    NVIDIA® Quadro® 1600M 512MB (Open GL) [+100,- US$]

    What are the main differences between GeForce and Quadro? This is not a gamings system, mostly AutoCAD. What should I choose?

    The Quadros are specifically for CAD applications, so if you aren't gaming and have the money that is what I'd get.
