IMHO, you may be better sticking with what you've got, as most rendering is done using the CPU, not the graphics card.
I use a Quadro K2200 card, which only makes itself really useful when using software like Adobe products, for instance.
Have you run the benchmark at http://forums.turbocad.com/index.php/topic,8615.msg94205.html. I'd really like to know how your Quadro card performs.
Also, have you investigated turning the GPU ON for RedSDK renders?
briefly, TurboCAD is not
CUDA enabled, so it cannot take advantage of graphics cards, including my Quadro K2200, which allow the utilisation of the GPU in this way.
Below is a screen grab example of Majo's render test, showing the CPUs doing all the work.
In Adobe PremiÃ¨re Pro, Autocad and Solidworks, the card's GPU is recognised, which allows rendering to take place on the GPU, similar to the GPU render test example.
I purchased the Quadro card principally for work with PremiÃ¨re Pro.
I have experienced no subjective difference, with TurboCAD renders, after tweaking any settings in the Render Manager or otherwise.
Therefore, I would suggest that any significant rendering gains, for the time being, can only be made through other means.
Perhaps IMSI might consider incorporating the CUDA libraries into TurboCAD, in some future release?
