LXer: NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M
Published at LXer:

Earlier this month we took a look at the NVIDIA Quadro FX1700, which is one of NVIDIA's mid-range workstation graphics cards that boasts 512MB of video memory, support for CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture), OpenGL 2.1, and the power consumption for this PCI Express graphics card is less than 50 Watts. In the tests that followed, the FX1700 had performed quite well at the workstation-oriented SPECViewPerf benchmark and we had compared its Ubuntu Linux performance to Solaris Express and Microsoft Windows Vista. The NVIDIA Linux driver with the FX1700 had the best performance and it ended up being a nice graphics card for around $500 USD.

I have one installed and look forward to CUDA development as well as 8800gs oc.
FX1700 seems great for the money I opted against the FX4700 because I did not quite need it and I don't beleive I would feel the performance diff. unless in a super intensive imaging enviro like scientific imaging etc...
