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.

while the FX 1400 is based of the old Geforce 6800. In any case the Nvidia will be quite a bit faster than the ATI,

Nvidia Quadro FX 1400... What to do with it?
I bought a PCI-Express graphics card off eBay because the seller said it was a PCI graphics card. Well, it was only $20 so shipping it back probably would not be worth it. I wanted to put this in my old desktop to make it a bit more useful, but it has AGP, and PCI, not PCI-Express. :rolleyes: I...
