Default Geforce + Quadro

Hey all

can 8800 series (more specifically 8800 GTS) be used with a quadro (not in SLI)?
i have two screens and I will like to drive the secondary with the 8800 provided their drivers won't conflict with each other.

thanks!

I'm guessing the driver will conflict. It'll be nice if they can work together, if you can switch around the "active" video card. I have a friend who is a Quadro user who is an avid gamer too. He has to switch to his other PC just to play games.

There's a post about it on nvidia forum: NVIDIA Forums -> Running Quadro and GeForce Card on Same Machine. No replies, and pretty long instructions. And the guy who did it said: "If everything is configured correctly, the system runs quiet fine. When you make some mistake as I did, you may need a month to fix it ".
