|There is a lot of confusing talk out there about running multiple video cards in the same machine. |
What i am trying to do is build a system made for 3d modeling in maya. And yet also have the ability to play games at high performance levels.
I have done some research and have decided to get a Quadro FX 1800 by PNY, or something very similar, for use in maya. What i would like to know is if it is possible to ALSO get a 2nd video card more suited for gaming. I don't particularly need them to work together, just would like one for gaming and one for 3d work. What are some of my options?
I am also looking for advice on what motherboard to get that can run the Quadro FX card and a Intel core 2 quad Q9550 processor. and as i have said, a 2nd gaming video card. (the gaming card is of lesser importance and the exact make/model doesn't matter too much)
thanks in advance for any suggestions/help
