so i have a Radeon FireGL v3100 workstation graphics card (has vga output as well) my question is, does it have functionality for PC desktops? it's a 128mb card and was thinking of throwing it in a buddy's computer who's running a Geforce2 64mb card...i'm just not sure if since it's designed for workstations if it's going to have the functionality that you want from a desktop

Comps a comp just aslong as it`s the same bus. It could be either AGP(many variants), PCI or PCI-E. Worst case scenerio if you dont know and are too lazy to check and see the difference you can take the card and see if it fit's in the slot. Remember to uninstall the orl GPU drivers before installing the new ones.

Best of luck!

aiight so it's pci-express, i'm downloading ati supplied drivers, everything i can find on the card is all about workstation applications...i'm sure it'll function, but i'm wondering about the actual performance since it's stated that it's designed specifically for workstation applications all over the place
