Hello everyone.

I recently obtained a graphics card, in its box and everything, I didn't pay for it but apparently it works. It's called an NVIDIA Quadro FX 500 (128mb DDR SDRAM??) and basically I think my computer can take it...
I have a Athlon 64 3400 with 1gb of ram, the problem is I don't know anything about this graphics card... I've googled it and I just don't understand the read out :whistling: If I installed it..what kinda games would I be able to play? Doom 3? Forgive me for not understanding this graphics card thing... At the moment i believe my computer doesn't have a graphics card or something?! onboard graphics?! I dont know...Also, the card didnt come with a cable? :blink: should it have a cable? If so are they expensive? Thank you for your time. :help:

This graphics card is designed for the CAD-CAM workstation market, not gaming. That is not to say that it won't make a decent gaming adapter, but it's not designed for gaming.

It runs in an 8X AGP slot, so make sure your motherboard supports this.

Some information can be found here.
