Should I buy this RTX A4000?

I've had my eyes on a pro-grade Nvidia card for a while as an upgrade from my GTX 980 Superclocked. Was really thinking an RTX A4500, but I can't resist an A4000 at this price... is this a smart purchase? It's a solid 2-3x more powerful than my current card anyway, and for just $600 it seems like quite the deal. Seems like a legit seller too, I can't really think of why it wouldn't be a good idea but I would like some other input first.

I won't be doing any serious gaming on this card, and I need a blower style cooler for my case. It'll be mainly for CAD and video editing.

That is a single slot card so it will probably run hot, be loud, or both but it dose look like a decent price.

I already have my GTX 980's fan speed cranked up so it stays under 70 degrees... I won't mind the sound of this one. And from experience, Quadro cards seem to be fine with single slot coolers, this needs only 1 6 pin after all

Nah the Quadro series are waaay more efficient than the GTX/RTX and are usually quite quiet and cool... That's also why they're so expensive btw

Makes it a good choice for gaming on a SFF build with much less heat/noise issues

From my experience these single slot Quadro cards run quite hot. I personally own both a Quadro M4000 and P4000, and they both run very hot under load. They're fairly quiet, but they aren't cool. Keep in mind that the A4000 can draw more power than either the M4000 or P4000 that I have, so that single slot cooler has a lot to deal with. I've used A4000s in the past, and the ones I used ran very hot under load.

Ok maybe it's only A2000 lower end cards that stay cool
