hi,
well like the title said, does anyone know if the mother asus P5G41T-M LX is compatible with nvidia quadro 2000 graphics card?

I'd need to know the particular model to be sure but I believe the answer is yes.

The board has a pcie 1.1 slot and the PNY version of the card that I looked at is pcie 2.0. 1.1 slots will accept 2.0 cards, but not 2.1. 2.1 cards will fit, but they won't work. The reason why is because a change in power requirements between 2.0 and 2.1 broke backwards compatibility.

Assuming the particular model you select is pcie 2.0 and not 2.1 then yes. I think it's reasonable to assume they'd all be the same revision, but best to check before you drop close to $400 on something that may or may not work.

One last thought, you know there are more powerful cards for less money, right?

thanks for the response, what cards are you speaking of? can you recomend me one?? I would use for 3d modeling in 3ds and rendering with vray,though that needs CPU.

I can really only speak for certainty about the compatibility, but I don't see any reason why you can't just get a better gaming card with higher specs for less money. It might not be QUITE as good for modeling, but my roommate (a full sail grad [don't go there, its a scam]) uses gaming cards with maya and is quite happy.

I'd suggest posting in the graphics forum if you're not sure.

Just to illustrate my point, let's take a look at 2 cards from newegg.
$389 PNY Quadro 2000
$89 Some random gaming card

Now both of these cards have 192 CUDA cores, are 128 bit, and have 1 GB of GDDR5. At a glance, I see two differences: $300 and the word 'workstation'. I've built entire systems for that. The card in my rig is 2 GB 256 bit and I paid $200.

I'm sure there must be something more to it than that, but it's a mystery to me. Even if the professional card is twice as good for modeling, I question if that justifies the cost.

I work in a kitchen, and it seems like all the equipment is easily 4 times the cost of the home versions. Is it better? Well yeah, but not 4 times better. I think a lot of what you're paying for is the words 'professional' and 'work station'.

Again, I suggest posting in the graphics forum. Whatever card you decide on, make sure it's pcie 2.0 as your board will NOT be able to run a pcie 2.1 or higher card.
