Hello, does anyone know if its possible to have both graphics cards installed in a single system (no SLI)? Actually, I have a Quadro FX1700 installed for CAD apps, however, I would like to install a GTS250 for gaming. Can I have both installed and choose to enable/disable one when needed?
That could work, thanks, but, how can I enable/disable the graphics card? E.g.: Let's supposed I am using AutoCad, now I finish my job and want to play a game.... how can I disable Qaudro and enable the GeForce?
Since they use the same driver package they should work and some apps including games allow the user to select which card that will be used to run the game. Some 3D apps are the same way. If you already got both cards then feel free if not then the GTS250 will have to suffice and will still run CAD and 3DSmax.
nforce4max, thanks for your response, is there any risk to my system? I really want to take advantage of both worlds (Open GL with Quadro and Direct X with Geforce), but I wouldn't jeopardize my system for it.
