i've been doing alot of research, and i can confirm those prices.

the quadro4, *lowest* end model can clock in as low as $400.  i've seen
the higher end models break $1500.

also, you can the geforce4 for $200, but depending on clock speed and
core chipset, can get to be $400.

the problem is that nvidia, like many other video card manufacturers,
has so many damned models, it's totally confusing.

take the geforce4.  you would expect a video card called "X" to be based
on a particular chipset.  if the company uses a different chipset, you'd
expect the video card to be called "Y".   or at least "X.1".  not so.

so, yeah.  those prices are for real, but they're for the really low end
