Default HP nVidia Quadro FX

i orodered this graphics card of www.pcwb.com
they said nothing about it being a hp product, and that using it on a non hp system would void my warranty, but i received it today and on the plastic wrap around the card saying that if i wer not to use it ona hp system it would void my warranty.
i need to know if this means it will not work and/or my system is hp, because i dont think it is seeing as i have custom built it, but the pcwb said NOTHING about using it on another system would void my warranty, what should i do?
thanks

Liam

Well how do they know your system "isn't" an HP computer?

The card will work in any system if your mobo has the right slot for it

Quadro FX and 8800GTX are for completely different things.

Thats like saying "Wow, $35,000 for that GMC pickup truck? You could get a BMW 3 series for that."

Sure, the BMW would be more luxurious, but the functionality of the two cars are completely different.
