I work in mechanical design and need several monitors to work with CAD and related. The system I'm currently using is a bit outdated, but still gets the job done fine:
- Xeon 5130 dual core
- 4GB RAM
- nVidia Quadro FX 4600 video card w/ 756MB memory
- Windows 7 Professional
The Quadro has 2 DVI connections, and I have 2 screens hooked in accordingly.
We have a slightly older model machine in the office with a similar video card, and nobody is using it, as well as 1 or 2 spare monitors.
Would there be issues with communication between the additional video card and my current? Does Windows 7 support this well or at all?
The secondary card I pulled from the old machine is a PNY GeForce FX5200 DDR 256MB PCI. Please let me know if this helps clarify the question.
