    HPxw8600 compatability with GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 960 DirectX 12 GV-N960WF2OC-4GD 4GB 128-Bit GDDR5 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

    Does anyone know if the new GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 960 DirectX 12 GV-N960WF2OC-4GD 4GB 128-Bit GDDR5 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card is compatable with the HP-wv8600 workstation which has the old NVIDIA Quadro FX 4600...

    I do see some used Quadro 5800 on ebay for about same price as GeForce but i am concerned about compatability with Avid Symphony Software... My reason for upgrade is more about the need for 4gig of video memory instead of only about 1 gig with old NVIDIA Quadro FX 4600?

    Thanks everyone for your input...

    Hello Arthur, 

       Let me see what our hardware experts say about this.

     

     

    Good luck,

    Thank you Ralph for your quick response. I have ordered the card after some research since i found that others have installed in a HPxw8600 and it fits and the power supply is large enough.

    and had good luck with it.  Not sure if anyone has tried to run Avid yet.  I am going to try when it arrives next week...
