Hello, I just got this from a friend. I was looking for a graphics card but then he gave me this one. I was wanting a gaming graphics card but I've heard that this one is not for gaming and won't give that performance. I am planning on getting Grand Theft Auto IV and want to know if this card will be able to play it.


If not what to you suggest that is a playable card wasn't thinking on spending less than $100.
Also if the Quadro Fx 3400/4400 is not able to play Grand Theft Auto IV then where can I sell the card.

Thank You.

You are right in that those Quadro cards are not for gaming and as for whether it can run GTA4, it may or may not. if it dose then its performance/FPS will cirtainly not be up to par with an equivilant gaming version of the card. if you already have the card you could try it, but dont expect much.

the best/popular place to sell it would be ebay, maybe only expect to sell at around 1/4th of buying new.

what screen resolution do you play at? what are the components of your computer? how many watts is your power supply?

something like the hd 4870/5770 would be good at that resolution. a 4890/5830 would be alot closer to overkill for that resolution in my oppinion.

I do gaming on my Dell workstation equipped with a quadro fx 3400\4400. The answer is in the software. Quadro software is tweaked for AutoCad. Since the GPU is the same as the comparable GeForce 6000 series ,I installed Forceware ver. 180 and it added the files missing from the Quad setup. If your game will operate adequately on a GeForce 6600 GTX, then it will work.
