could probably use if for physx, since it only needs the cuda functions of the cards which should be identical. I don't think it will have that great of gaming performance though.

Pretty much nothing really. Obviously it won't SLI, is too old for PhysX (afaik), and will be very poor in games as a primary card.

You could use it to display more monitors I guess.

I'd just sell it, Quadros have a sweet price premium.

Don't use it for games. Sure quadros might be way more expensive, but they were MADE for picture/video encoding and rendering and whatnot. I say sell it if you don't produce movies or edit pictures for a living.
