That isn't for gaming. It is for workstations and people who work with graphic producing and such.

Nope, it wouldn't.
That is like saying this card would be good for gaming.

But it isn't.

They are intended for different purposes.

I think nView is multi-display software.

The FireGL and Quadro series are for workstations and servers. They usually have 512mb or more RAM on there, because the software they usually use needs it.
