quadro cards?

I need to get a new card, I am considering a quadro 1700. This is the same chip as the 8600, and yes, I know the 1700 costs as much as a 8800GTX, I just need to use the system for pro 3d apps too
Any issues I should be aware of?

We’ve never tested on that card in particular. We’ve used some other quadro cards (4500, 5550, 5600) without any issues though.
