What software will you be using?
What is your budget?
Will you be doing any video editing/transcribing at all? If the answer is NO, this is a list of cards that have been tested and are supported.
If you do use video, for best results you should stick with Nvadia cards.
Geforce GTX 560 (TI) or a PNY NVIDIA QUADRO 600? What is the difference between them?
This is not a ccomparison with the power of the cards as they are vastly different, (i doubt that the Quadro would play the Sims)
A GTX is aimed at consumers, with drivers optimized for gaming, watching videos, etc.. A Quadro is almost identical, same GPU but different RAM amount and the drivers are optimized, aimed at professorial photographers, more reliable drivers, direct support, so you pay top dollar.
