Default Can this card be used for gaming???

I dont think it is but someone that im talking to right now says it would be a great card for gaming. So if you did get it how would games run on it?http://store.nvidia.com/servlet/Secu...8900&Env=BASE#

That is not a video card.


It is a workstation primarily for the use of rendering graphics and such.


That would lag alot in games, and get horrible FPS.


The quadro cards inside that box use Quadro drivers witch are not designed for gaming, but specifically rendering graphics and such.

It's made for Intense intense stuff, not your typical 4 hour render.

Also VERY good for AutoCad.

Tell your friend he knows as much about computers as my dog.

i don't know whether or not games could be played on that but it is mighty expensive, it is targeted for rendering etc.

Nah nitestick it would lag horribly.


Even though it has Dual GPU's, with 1GB per GPU, The quadro drivers are what really make gaming with FireGL cards or Quadro really horrible.




Can you PLAY a game on it? Yes.


Would it be smooth? No.
