Does anyone have any experience of quadro and/or gtx? Been doing some research into graphics cards and from what I've read the quadro is optimized for open GL for use on drawing programs like Cad. Just wondered if anyone had noticed if there was a positive or negative effect in CM?

Combat Mission is CPU limited.  Over the years I have played it on GTX 580, GTX 680, GTX 980 and now GTX 1080.  There has been no positive improvement in frame rate across all those GPUs.

Well this is good news. I can buy pretty much any old card and I'm laughing.

I would say CM is engine limited. After certain point no matter what you throw at it the frame rate doesn't move an inch(frame?). Law of diminishing returns gets pretty rough after card like 1050ti.

I wouldn't agree.  If I downclock the CPU, the frame rate will drop.  I cannot run my CPU higher than 4.7Ghz so I have never been able to "throw anything more at it", however I imagine I would see a bit of an improvement @5Ghz.

But what won't improve it is very powerful GPUs, which was the OP's question.

Well, not really. I used an old CAD computer until recently, with a fairly powerful Quadro-Card and was fairly dissppointed. I replaced the Quadro with an old GTX570, which was quite an improvement. Can‘t remember the details, but somehow the CAD-cards are missing a hardware component, that game cards have. Or something like that...

Well I bought an old gtx 560ti so hopefully that should be sufficient. 

Don‘t try to play the CMFB „falling snow“ scenarios or any real large scenario and you should be fine. In case of the large scenarios: Set all graphics requirements to minimum and it still should work somehow. Not nice, but playable.
