I am a mechanical guy so i know i don't have anywhere near an optimal system. However, I hope this question is not too vague or hard to answer.
I am wondering how much better CAD and general use (Videos, movies, CAD) of my computer will be by upgrading from a geforce 8300gs (junk) to a Quadro fx 3450?? maybe even a FPS (call of duty was terrible on the 8300gs) haven't played in years but you get the idea.
I have the quadro (from a buddy) and only need a molex-to-pcie power connector to run it, from my research.
Is it worth buying the connector? This card look very expensive when it came out, so I have hopes it can limp my pc on further with the adapter.
Again keep this in comparison to my current card (8300gs) so they both are not complete junk!
