nVidia Quattro FX vs. GeForce - Comparison?

Yes I know they are designed for two different sections of the 3D Marketplace but IF I was looking at a desktop with an FX1400 to game with what sort of performance could I see compared with say a GeForce 6800GT?

Are they really so different that I should avoid using it on a games box?

The GForce 6800GT will crush the FX1400 in gaming performance. With 16 pipelines at 350mHz and 1000mHz 256bit memory it is about twice as powerful as the FX1400 with 8 pipelines at 350mHz and 600mHz 256bit memory.
The FX1400 also cost 'bout twice as much...
If you want CAD/CAM performance...use the FX.
If you want gaming...get the GT.

I agree with TMJ, The GT chipset is designed to work with 3d gaming as the following link shows... features by the GT are indexed below..

Thanks, confirms what I thought, friend at work was being offered this as part of a "Games Machine" & I think it was being pushed as " look a graphics card that separately would cost you 2-3 times that of a 6800GT" with the implication clearly being that it would automatically be 2-3 times faster.  I don't think the purchaser has any plans to start using CAD & I was trying to find a direct comparison between the cards.  What you have posted will do fine.  Perhaps they might listen to me next time ...

M :o)
