    Why would anybody want to buy a Nvidia Quadro nvs 290 when they could just buy an old Geforce fx 5700 for probably like $20.00 on ebay. When the Nvidia Quadro nvs 290 cost any where from 100.00 - 200.00.

    - Both cards support 2 monitors, so I dont get what the Nvidia Quadro nvs 290 could do better.

    Isnt the Nvidia Quadro nvs 290 only a 2d video card and not a 3d video card.

    Because they seem to consume small amounts of power, are designed for reliability rather than speed and offer multiple display ports. They are aimed at business users really.
