Hi all,
Just started looking into mining.

I have a few workstations at my disposal at my office. They are high-end graphics workstations. Each has a Quadro 6000. I am already familiar with the gospel that says ATI > nVIDIA for mining, but the cards are installed already.

Considering that electricity is free, the computers are under my watch, and there are four of them, is it worth it to get started mining with them?

Please forgive the noobishness.
Thanks!

Do you own these machines? Nvidia cards arent good for mining. Yes you could pull something. Is it worth it. No.

According to this they would be mediocre at mining - potentially less than today's $100 ATI cards each

Quadra 6000 are 3 year old cards.  They probably still rock for other things, just not for the type of calculations that mining is.
