Hi,
I'm awaiting my geForce FX 5900 (non-ultra, 128mb ram).
I wonder if geForce FX 5900 can still be hacked into quadro, like geForce
could in the past?
(If so, please point me to sites with the software I need).
And while we are on the subject, woudl one get any speed up or slowdown when
using Quadro FX for games?
Or perhaps any DirectX incompatibilites?

Thank you,
Luke

Hi,

I don't have the same model that your getting, but
I have a Leadtek GeForce FX5900 Ultra 256mb,
I installed Rivatuner with the 52.16 from Nvidia.
Rivatuner said it wasn't tested with these driver
but it worked anyway. when I rebooted my machine
it asked for drivers for a Quadro FX, also from the
Nvidia site I installed the 52.14 Quadro drivers
My system reports that I have a Quadro FX3000.
I can't say for sure that I have the real performance
of an FX3000 but my problems I had with the Cad
software I use are gone.

If you have more question ask away.

Regards,

Louis.
