I have been chasing a second budget gaming rig for home but it just dawned on me, I have a Dell Precision 690 server here which I use for some virtualization education and testing. The box currently has two Xeon 5160's dual core CPU's at a stock clock of 3Ghz and 20GB of DDRII RAM (667mhz I believe).
My question is; if I took the Quadro FX4500 out of it and put in a budget gaming card like a 550 Ti or 7770 would the machine be an alright second gaming rig as well? I am thinking for titles like Max Payne 1, 2, 3, Half-Life 2 and source based games like Portal, TF2, LFD etc?
I also dabble in WoW a little.
What do you think, would it be worth while keeping this rig, using it for work as I do but just swap out the Quadro for something more mainstream?
