I got this new ‘cad’ station built and the quadro card I got is a pooch (FX5500) especially for the $ - cha ching! It’s going back.
This machine is not really a cad station anyway, but it’s what I could afford to spend right now, I’ll retask it in a few months when I can afford to build something real cad-ish.
Just a ‘lil ole i7 860 clocked to 3.75ghz w/ the ram running at 1600 777. Not to shabby for $500, but nothing to write home about.
So instead of plunking down major coin on another quadro, I thought a geforce might get the job done for now. Looking at the EVGA GTX 260 as the price point is right and the ‘egg has them in stock.
I know, I know, geforce cards aren’t really cad cards, but I’d think it would get the job done for now and would be well suited for a media center later. And yes, I know SW doesn’t ‘certify’ these drivers, but frankly the drivers they do certify are old and kind of clunky anway (the one they certify for my fx570 lappy sux.)
