My brother wanted a gaming pc, so I purchased a p1000 and put it in one of my haswell Optiplex desktops. It’s a 250w SFF desktop, with only 2 Low Profile slots. I would have gotten a 1050 or 1650, but the PCI e X16 slot is in the SECOND slot, so you have NO room for a 2 slot card. It was either this, the gt1030 or the AMD wx 4100 -__-.
So, since he isn’t really using it for CAD or anything of the like, should try to mod a GeForce driver, or should I just use the Quadro precision drivers?
I originally had a gt730 in it, and when i swapped in the p1000 it worked just fine, and showed up as a GeForce driver. However literally no options showed up in the Nvidia control panel, and it displayed kinda … wierd (although my version of win 10 isn’t activated yet ) .
The funny thing is that MSI afterburner allowed me to play with the clocks and fan curve, even though you’d think those things would be off limits on a quadro.
SO: Is a moded driver worth the hassle, or should I install a precision driver for him. Should I just leave it in this limbo GeForce state? Are there any other options to increase the performance of this 640 CUDA core card without killing the card or PSU? What do you all recommend? Thanks!
P.s. I don’t use the NVidia sign-in B.S. experience software. Every driver I just download from their website.
