Yes they are 100% possible. Just use rivatuner to unlock the professional capabilities. Both you said do in fact work. I did so with an 8600GTS (over to FX1700) for my dad's quad CAD rig.

You don't need a BIOS. Just search around on google, I lost the page. But if you use RivaTuner to do the swap....it's 100% software. So hardware wise, its still the 8600GT, but software wise...it unlocks the professional abilities.

Its not EXACTLY the same as a true Quadro card. However it's as close as you'll get with a GeForce card. And it won't void warranty.

Actually when it comes to gaming, the Quadro sucks. It's more meant for applications like Photoshop.
