Yes, it is a 64MB NVIDIA Quadro NVS 280 PCI.

I am not a gamer but I spotted a "Call of Duty" reduced due to not having it's original box and went for it.
Unfortunately no box meant no specs so I found out a bit too late I needed at least a 256 card.

It's not a big deal really as I'm quite content for the time being, it seems to handle my Photoshop etc quite well.

Workstation Graphics cards have special drivers optimised for photo and video work and as such are not very good for gaming.

Video card NOT compatible with Windows7, > http://www.microsoft...X 700&os=32-bit

You will not be able to use a PCIe graphics card in that workstation as the slots are PCIX
> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI-X

Updating the video drivers may help with gaming. Last driver updates, > http://www.nvidia.co...2k_94.24_2.html

The AGP type of video card that will fit in your MB can be found at this link http://www.amazon.co...04796300&sr=1-7
You can get the cards full specs & system requirements from http://www.shopow.co...133104#tab_desc a + with this card
is your systems 450W PSU will not need to be replaced, you may need to use a molex to 6 pin converter for the card if your
PSU does not already have one http://www.aria.co.u...productId=17133
