Opengl video cards Tags: Graphics Cards Workstations OpenGL Graphics Last response: September 10, 2010 5:55 PM in Graphics & Displays Share rossal September 3, 2010 2:41:23 AM I would like to know if it's possible to run a gaming card and a 3d workstation card such as an Nvidia Quadro FX card switching between the two for different applications?

The difference are just the drivers however, in fact you can even hack drivers on both.

It depends on your budget really. rossal September 10, 2010 5:55:54 PM Thanks guys. I thought the two card idea wouldn't work. Where can I get info on how to hack Quadro drivers? I don't mind paying for any of the availale gaming cards as they are still much cheaper than good openGl cards. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
