    Nvidia Quadro 4000 PLUS Quadro FX 3450?

    Will be using Symphony 6 on Dell T5500 with Nvidia Quadro 4000.  Have Nvidia Quadro FX 3450 from earlier system.  Can I add it to the T5500 for better graphics support (am disappointed in the 4000 w/ MC6) or at least output to second monitor?  Would there be driver issues?  Linking issues?

    No point as Symphony will only use one of the cards anyway.

    The FX3450 isn't a very high spec card compared to the 4000 card.

    What are your issues with the 4000 card specifically?

    Pat --

    Thanks for your speedy answer and letting me know about Symphony's card use.  Quadro 4000 seems to be relatively slow on redraw -- almost as slow as I am in responding to your question (my apologies).  Could it be that my Dell T5500, into which I've poured more than 50 hours of terrible trouble-shooting with Dell techs over the past two months, be the problem?  I plan to inquire about others' experience with the T5500 elsewhere on the forum so I don't go off point here.  Haven't seen any real negatives about the Quadro 4000 on this forum.  Am I correct in assuming that Symphony is unable to take full advantage of the Quadro 5000?
