[gmx-users] CUDA with QUADRO GPUs?

Dear all,
I am considering buying a workstation with a Quadro K2000 or K4000 GPU.
According to this NVIDIA site these GPU have more "compute capability" than most 
of the Tesla cards (except for the K20):
In particular, much more "compute capability" than the cards used for the 
Gromacs benchmark:
Does that mean that I can perform efficient gromacs calculations on these K2000 
or K4000 cards? Does anybody have experience with them?

PS. The reason why I want to buy a Quadro card is that these workstations will 
be used for visualization, but only during the summer period, where we have more 
students. If they could be used for running MD during the year, I would consider 
buying these high end cards, otherwise I'll probably but a cheaper card.
