Windows 7: Radeon 8960 vs Quadro FX 1400

Windows 8 Pro x64
Radeon 8960 vs Quadro FX 1400

I know, ancient cards but they will do for the machine I want to put them in. I just want to know which one would be better? Both cards have 128 MB of DDR VRAM, and PCI-Express. The Radeon card has no fan, just a heatsink, while the Quadro has a fan. Currently this system is running Windows XP, but I might put Windows 7 x86 on it.

The PC is a Dell Optiplex GX280:

3 GB of DDR2 RAM
3.2 GHz Intel Pentium 4 HT

The main thing this system is being used for is Adobe CS4.
