[Graphics] PowerEdge 2900 with the best nvidia gpu compatible card. Tags: Graphics Cards GPUs Nvidia PCI Express Graphics blues76 December 31, 2012 7:19:11 PM Hi, I have a poweredge 2900 dell server. I want to add a nvidia gpu enabled card. I need nvidia, because I'm going to test cuda 5.0 there. I have review some of the other 2900 dell server topics here and also google some... One question, why is it that I need some sort of a "RAISER", that I sow mention in another post: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/253178-33-graphic-car... what is it for? do I need it for the 1x? Why is it possible to find video cards for 1x but not 4x and 8x? any particular reason? (well of course, I can find plenty of 16x) I have three PCI-E 4x , one PCI-E 8x , two PCI-X (extended 64 bits) available. My understanding is that my PCI-E is 1.0 but I heard I can use 2.0 I want to find the best possible gpu available that I can get with no more than 200 dollars. with 120 dollars being the prefer amount. I have notice that for PCI, the best one I can get is 8400 GS (GE FORCE) For PCI-E, item 4 seems to be best one so far I have found in amazon. ' I have the following ones that I have found (PCI 1X) , but a few are pci 3.0 1) NVIDIA NVS 300 by PNY 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express Gen 2 x1 DMS-59 to Dual DVI-I SL or VGA Profesional Business Graphics Board, VCNVS300X1-PB http://www.amazon.com/PNY-Profesional-Business-Graphics... 2) NVIDIA Quadro NVS 295 by PNY 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express Gen 2 x1 Dual DisplayPort or DVI-D SL Profesional Business Graphics Board, VCQ295NVS-X1-DVI-PB http://www.amazon.com/PNY-DisplayPort-Profesional-Busin... 3) Nvs 300 Pcie 512MB X1 Graphics Card http://www.amazon.com/Nvs-Pcie-512MB-Graphics-Card/dp/B... 4) GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 650 Ti OC 2GB GDDR5 2x DVI / HDMI / D-SUB PCI-Express 3.0 Graphics Card Graphics Cards GV-N65TOC-2GI http://www.amazon.com/GIGABYTE-GeForce-PCI-Express-Grap... 5) Zotac GeForce GT 218 512MB DDR3 PCI Express x1 DVI HDMI VGA Gaphics Cards GT218IONGPU-A-E http://www.amazon.com/Zotac-GeForce-Express-Gaphics-GT2...
