    How much better are professional "cad" application graphics cards, compared to Gaming cards. Lets say the 256mb Radeon 9800 Pro, vs. the best professional card? Would the professional card have the same abilities as the gaming card in gaming? Anyways.. my friend is going to be buying a PC soon as a workstation mainly for "cad" appilcations. and some gaming on the side im sure... Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

    P4 2.4B, 1024 PC800 RdRAM,
    Sheety Video Card (mx420),
    Not enough power supply,
    probly runs hot,
    to broke to buy a DVD-rom, 40x10x40x cdrw
    80gig HD (probly 2mb cache)
    Brought to me all from Dell.
    (I'll build my next one)

    No these cards are built for entirely different purposes. Gaming cards will not give the clarity needed by professional users (FPS are not a requirement here mainly high refresh rates and clarity) and Professional cards will not give the type of performance required by gamers (not to mention that the price would be far too much). There are more finer details to this but that should give ya the broad idea.
