Hey I am getting a new graphics card for my PC, I have been getting heavily into Autodesk Maya and I currently have an asus cm6870 computer but the graphics is integrated and not dedicated.
I called asus they said I can get a dedicated nvidia graphics card without a problem with the motherboard or anything so I am pretty settled on a nvidia quadro 4000, I have been reading really good things for the cardfor what I need it for. My questions are:
-Do I need to buy/install a second fan for inside the tower?
-Has anyone ever put a dedicated card into a system with an integrated card? Is it hard to do, is it really going to be compatible?
-How would I disable the integrated card so I can use the dedicated card?
I really want to try and save the money and do the project myself, but would it be worth spending the money to have a computer repair shop install the card for me?
-you'll need to buy an intake fan for the front of your case
front fan more powerful than back fan= no dust buildup
- it isn't hard at all, just stick it in your mobo and then connect your monitor cable to your graphics card and you'll be done.
- don't forget to install drivers
