just what sort of interaction takes place between the video card and the CPU that is or isn't simply handled by software?
I am curious if this is this a hardware flooding or starvation issue if you get the wrong video card or is it a software issue of the same. or both?
I am sure the whole determination process isn't magic. it is just an art form? is it learning by experimentation only?
I was planning on a new build:
PNY (NVidia) quadro 4000 for use with Adobe, mediacoder, anything else in the future that happens to use CUDA (if audio editing with Cakewalk Sonar uses that).
mobo is asus p9x79 deluxe (socket 2011)
haven't picked out the 850W PSU yet. maybe I can again choose the pc power & cooling turbo-cool 860.
3 blu-ray burners (I am a software developer and make my own discs and I also plan on authoring blu-ray discs)
To be honest, The Quadro should work in any socket 2011 mobo that has the PCI-E slot, The system you plan to build is so new that it should work with out any problems. But I am PC Builder/Gamer and normally don't mess with any work station type PC's.
I have messed with a server and built 2 of them, but they were much different, lol.
