    Help for any car experts here

    Changing an ignition barrel is a pretty simple job, just gets a fit fiddly. If possible get a set that includes new door locks, more work but worth it to only need one key. As for repairing one, not recommended as they're designed to be replaced (only worth it on a very original classic).

    Two different GPU's in one tower?

    If you want one card to do both then traditionally you've been better off going AMD. The first generation Kepler based Titans were good for 2D and light 3D workloads, but the switch to Maxwell signified that they were pure gaming cards. You may not think much of double precision floating points until you have errors crop up in your drawings from them (suddenly seeing a 0.0001mm on the end of a measurement will make rage-quitting seem like a soft option) You also need to remember you won't get driver and software support for Geforce cards in supported version of most packages, intel integrated graphics will get support first. And when you can get a decent SLI setup for the price of your yearly software licences, why would you waste the money on gaming performance when those dollars can be spent on improving your workflow and cashflow.

    I just posted in the other thread, but TL/DR It can be done, when it works it's great but you are in for a world of driver issues and will have to rebuild the system. I'm just running the Quadro now as it's easier.
  4. After personal experience, I'd advise against this as the drivers will get extremely picky. You need to make sure you install the Quadro drivers first and that the versions are matched. Geforce drivers update more frequently than the Quadros and will mess up the system more often than not. One thing is that both cards will run with only one set of drivers installed, just that only ones features will be taken advantage of. You can try to setup a dual boot arrangement with one for work and the other for gaming, and this also helps with the other failing, procrastination. I have since gone to just running a newer Quadro now as being able to run AutoCAD and Revit are more important, and considering how expensive the licences are it's a waste not to optimise them.
