 Share

Hello, new to the group, I have a dell T7400 workstation with a Nvidia Quadro FX5600, looking to attach a third monitor, not sure if it is possible with this single card

now looking to get a second one with similar performance or another with support for 3 displays with same performance, Budget oriented, any advise experts?

That GPU is pretty old, have you considered replacing it with something a little newer? A gtx 750 ti has 3 video ports, and it's also better.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

NVIDIAs website says the GPU only supports 2 monitors in use at the same time. Also, it has 240 CUDA cores... I think any GPU you buy from the past couple years will be better. What do you use it for? Hardware acceleration in programs? Or just for display output?

it came with the computer, as I learned about the Quadro vs GeForce, looking for more like CAD Work such AutoCAD/Solidworks, If I find something cheap that can run three monitors with the same performance , I would be really interested,

While a quadro of a given generation is better than a GeForce card of that generation,  a GeForce card that's much newer will stomp an old quadro like that.

its older than yours, but have better performance.

Its in the naming :

FX - Quadro cards as oppose to GTX (consumer card)

4 - first digit is the generation 4 vs 5

800 - The classification 800 > 600

In paper, higher class usually have better performance, but newer generation usually are more efficient.

So a 5600 may have the same score as 4800.

 

But those are very old cards, i would stay away, even if they have Quadro labels.

Cheap cards nowdays even gtx1030 will smash both of them.

And most GPU today have 3 output.

Ryzen 3600 @ 4.5ghz all cores | Asrock B550M Steel Legend | Radeon RX580 | 2x Samsung 16gb c-die 2666 @ 3600mhz cl16 | 500gb WD SN750 | 9 TB HDD | Deepcool Gammax 400 w/ 2 delta 4000rpm push pull | Antec Neo Eco Zen 500w

The 750 ti is already extremely basic and cheap, it'll only be $30 more if that. I highly recommend you put in the invstment
