|I wasn't able to view the links earlier. The Gigabyte splash screen comes up, then after a brief delay, the system boots into Windows. The BIOS settings are a mess. Why do you have the all integrated graphics settings enabled? And why are you running the SATA controller in IDE mode? If you're using a USB keyboard, try switching to a PS/2 & see if that will allow you into the BIOS to fix all the settings.|
Why did you switch to a workstation graphics card?
"The Quadro lineup is geared toward graphics professionals, engineers, medical imaging, geospatial, or anyone who needs very heavy computational performance. By "heavy" we're not talking photographs and web graphics. Think more along the lines of a 3D model that accurately describes every thread of every bolt in your whole damn car - and all the other parts. Think programs likeAutodesk Maya, The Foundry's Nuke and Nukex, Catia, SolidWorks."
"So does that make Quadro cards faster at gaming? Surprisingly no. They'll be on-par with an equivalent GeForce card, sometimes a touch slower sometimes faster but by no significant margin. Remember, game engines are written with GeForce in mind. Technically, you can play games with a Quadro with pretty-settings cranked up on your workstation, but it's not nirvana."
