See that's why I didn't want to convert to 2600K actually. With the LGA 1366 socket, every single slot ran at 16x, no down-grading when installing other cards. It sounds like I'm gonna get a hell of a lot more promise out of the i7-980x hexacore. And for only 300 dollars more? Screw it, I'm doing it, no more 2600K. Plus, apparently the most convincing line involves overclocking. I forgot to mention. I'm not an overclocking kind of guy. So, I guess that answers that
Thanks man I knew that but I didnt know if there was a special type of program or hardware I would need to do that :S

Your slot choice doesn't actually matter bc the real world difference is a 2%ish loss when a x16 is compared to a x8 etc...so put it wherever.

So in the end did you buy a quadro for your workstation and then one for gaming? I did and its wonderful, no lag in games and no lag in my workstation either. cost me $1200 for the quadro and $389 for the GTX 570 but it is totally worth it to get full performance from both cards in the apps I need.

Thread Starter 
I've decided that I'm not going to make such a big fuss about gaming for this computer, and stick to a standard gaming card. I picked the GTX 460, this one:


and the Quadro 4000. When I get to gaming, I'm thinking I'll just use it as a motivator to work harder, and then I'm gonna start building an AMD computer with a 6900 series Radeon. but I also want to fit a Pro card in there too, I was thinking about this one:


but that's for the distant, distant future, i haven't even bought my Intel parts yet.
