I have a Ati Firepro V8600 and have been having alot of display issues with it tried all sorts of drivers, settings.  I have been working with SW tech support for almost a year with all sorts of updates to the point that I had to rebuild my computer from a new format since the registry was so screwed up from the installs and uninstalls.

I have seen that some people have some issues with these cards but some are running fine.

Just wonderig is its worth trying the Quadro FX 1800 or not?


850 watt power supply corsair

Asus WS supercomputer MB (workstation board)

Intel Core I5 chip

8 gigs ram

2 650 meg drives (running in mirror raid)

2 22 inch viewsonic monitors same model and same res.

ATI FireGL V8600

Win7 X64 Professional


I've been dealing with display issues since version 2009 - 2011 and I am a little tired of not being able to pic features, model disappearing on me, ghosting and all sorts of other display issue.  Time is very precious to me.  But since money is tight its hard to spend that cash and not have any return on it.  I dont see the cash flow in my little biz like larger companies. $450 is a good chunk of change that does not come easy when I already purchased a certified graphics card from SW list and it doesn't work well.  Justifying it is a little hard.
