  1. I have a spare MSI BOSTON OEM G31/33 board and a Q6600 lying around in my house. I was wondering, if I could pair it up with the those P series Nvidia Mining Graphics card for a very cheap build. Does this config have any IGPU that will allow me to use those discrete GPUs? Does using IGPU as display adapter + Graphics card without display output creates any display lag? CPU Z shows that it has an P35/31/33 graphics. If I am not able to use the IGPU, can I use any other discrete model GPU with the mining cards (NOT SLI)
  2. Thanks man. So it also proves that using igpu to communicate with the graphics card doesn't reduce any/much performance
  3. There is no malware risk in the drivers. Modification of the driver takes just editing few lines in the a file. Its so easy that you can do it yourself. Go to Github and search for P106 Nvidia, there is a detailed instruction on how to do it. However its not much reliable for a budget build as they use Pci gen 1.0 instead of the 3.0 which Gtx 1060 uses. I don't know how Linus got 63 average fps with the P106-100 and 68fps on Gtx 1060 6gb when the P106-100 uses PCI 1.0 while the gaming graphics card Gtx 1060 6gb uses PCI 3.0 or is it that the P106 has been overclocked a lot and his powerful processor compensated the loss of fps
  4. Well I have a spare MSI Boston G31/33 motherboard, its an LGA 775 socket board with a 3.2GHz dual core processor. Yesterday I thought of bottlenecking it with a GTX 1050ti but the system doesn't boot up with the card in the PCI slot even after giving it adequate power supply My board uses a legacy BIOS What should be the reasons that my system isn't booting up with the GPU and should I 1. Update the bios or 2. Change legacy bios to UEFI ( not sure whether this mobo will support UEFI or not) Its an Compaq/HP system MS-7525 Ver 1.0 is the serial no.
