How well does this work worth rhino, vray, and maya and in bootcamp?

I have the ATI Radeon HD 5870 and was wondering how much of an upgrade this is in these softwares as well as the possibility and configuration of having both the 5870 and the Quadro 4000.

    Keep the 5870 or double it up. the nVidia is a disaster, i have had nothing but issues with it, it is NOT OpenCL compliant so there is no advantage in FCP or Motion, half the CUDA based applications require you to install the CUDA api for it to work right. I am selling my quadro now and putting a second 5870 in.

    BTW you can't run the 5870 and quadro without a splitter for power, and i have heard (but haven't seen) that there are issues running these 2 together
