Two thousand dollars, for a graphics card?

Is this a joke?

Apparently you're unfamiliar with the Quadro and Tesla lines. They are not designed for gaming or typical use. It's not really cheap to anyone. It's just one of those things where if you need it, you're probably quite aware of it.

Still waiting for my Quadro 4000 to show it's usefulness, might as well get three iMacs for the money I wasted on this Mac Pro. Motion, AE, Final cut and Premiere run smoother and more reliable on my 17MBP. And its a lot nicer to my electrical bill.

New cards are great but the whole architecture of the Mac Pro needs to be updated from 2004 to 2012 tech before it is actually useful. Besides with Apple still deciding how I should work and what is important, jumping back to windows for video and visuals might be a better option then wasting more money on poorly supported hardware.

Not sure I can face the horror of popups I left behind a few years ago.
