Advice - add video card to an older system
I have (as a second computer) a HP Compaq D530 Ultra-slim desktop, with a Pentium 4 2.80 Ghz, 2 Gb of RAM and Intel Extreme Graphics 2 onboard, running Windows 7 32-bit. This machine has a usable PCI slot (simple PCI, not PCI-Express), so in theory I could add an old - second-hand - video card to it.
I was thinking about a (dirt cheap) Nvidia Quadro 280 NVS, with 64 Mb.
My question: would this be worth it? I mean would I see real improvement when running various graphics intensive software (like Autocad for instance)?
Than you very much
