Hi. basically what I need to know is if there is a way to 'trick' your video card (example; geforce 7900gtx) into thinking it is a Quadro 5500 card, through bios flashing and drivers. they both use the same chip.
so is it a hardware thing that differentiates quadros and geforces or bios and software?
also im building a pc for heavy video editing, so if anyone can provide some tips...
cpu: intel e6600 2.4ghz 4mb cache
mobo: gigabyte 965 chipset, probably DS3 version
ram: 2 x 1gb ocz sticks at 800mhz (6400)
hdd: 1 tb of storage. probably seagate 7200.1 drives
gpu: geforce 7900gtx
and also a matrox rtx100 (got it real cheap).
probably a 450-500watt psu
and some case... whateva...
