Hello, I have a Dell Inspiron 530 with a OFM586 Motherboard. The video slot is said to be a PCI Express: 16 x1
I am intending to run SolidWorks 2011 which prefers Quadro FX graphics adaptors. Quadro FX 1700 as a minimum. The board I am considering is a PNY 2000D which has a PCI 16 2.0 interface.
1. It looks like I will need a new power supply (existing is 350 w)
2. Is the PNY 2000D compatable with my interface?
