quadro's are often used for cad and other scientific applications, where its not tolerated for the gpu processing to return miscalculations. for adobe software, i believe the only advanced feature from a quadro it can use is the 10-bit output. most people just opt for a separate display-out card to handle that function and go with a gtx card. the quadro m4000 is an underclocked gtx 970.
Thank you Ronin -- what would you suggest for a 1 GPU setup with x99, and CPU i7-5960x ?
Again mainly for Video editing use / rendering / after effects...
it will depend on your media and project's needs. the gtx 970 is often recommended here for 4k footage with premiere. if you have footage that can use the gpu for debayering like red footage, or very gpu intensive plugins like neat video, or separate gpu rendering plugins/programs like octane, or plan on using color grading apps like speedgrade/resolve, then the gtx 980 ti will be a better option.
