Hardware question - What Graphicscard to buy

Post by MadMesh »

I'm building a new system and need some help with choosing a graphics card. I'm not even considering an ATI card just so you know :P, so here are my questions.

1. Is there any benefit in having a SLI setup, 2 Nvidia graphics cards.
2. From what I understand NVidia Quadro cards are best for workstation use, but they also require the software to support their features. Pro Engineer and Maya have support for this, does Blender have (or wil have) support for this?
3. Gaming criteria for choosing a graphics card are not important for me.

Any advice and recommendations are welcome of course.
