    rep tells me my Duel Xeons not support GTX Titan


      i own/use a workstation computer for editing hd video and 2d animation - i don't game. when i purchased the machine a few years ago, a rep at the company told me that my duel xeons would only support quadro based (workstation) cards. i'm looking to upgrade the overall performance of my machine, be it a geforce gtx titan or 600-700 level gpu, or upgrading my processors, but i need to make sure that i indeed CAN switch to geforce from quadro. below are my straight from my invoice.


      Intel Motherboard Dual Socket Xeon S5520SC

      Intel Xeon CPU Fan Heatsink STS100C

      2 x 2.26GHz Intel "Nehalem" Xeon Quad Core [8MB]

      12GB 1333MHz DDR3 Triple Channel SDRAM (6 x 2GB)

      1TB High Speed Hard Drive [64MB Cache, 7200RPM]

      StormDrive Dual Layer CD/DVD Writer

      850W Silent Power Supply

      Windows 7 Pro [64-bit]

      NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800 Workstation Graphics Accelerator [1GB]

      PCI 3 Port FireWire [TI Chipset]

      (additional) 1TB High Performance Drive [64MB Cache SATA 3 6GB]

      (additional) 2 TB High Performance Drive [64MB Cache SATA 3 6GB]


      ALSO, can anyone attest to which is better (on the whole): geforce or quadro?
