About graphics card especially designed for OpenGL

Hi all,

I m working on a project using OpenGL with MS Visual C++ to model the school campus.

I find that there are some graphics display card eg. ATI FireGL, Nivda Quardo XGL, is that they can improve the performace of my program? And is that these “special” cards are faster than those ordinary cards like ATI Radeon and Nivda GEforce, in working with OpenGL?

Thx for the helps!!!
