GAMING CARDS VS GRAPHIC CARDS

Ok, I admit it, I like to play games, specifically on-line shooters, and have a pretty decent NVidia gaming card.

 

BUT SW only has "certified" so many "graphics cards".

 

I thought the gaming industry was leading the way for computer graphics???? .. are we to believe that graphics cards are 'better' than gaming cards???

 

Regardless, I suppose my questions that welcome all responses are:

  1. We are paying a pretty penny for the SW product - why aren't more cards "certified"????
  2. Are the graphics cards really that much better than the gaming cards???
    1. For example, what is 'better' about the NVidia Quadro 4000 than the Nvidia Geforce 560 gtx?
  3. Why are there instabilites in the SW software? is it really that finicky and susceptible to artifacts that develop over time???

 

Help me understand!!!!!!

 

Call me bamboozled!!!!
