    Hi, my board is ASUS Z97-K (https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Z97K/specifications/) . The first PCI slot is x16, second slot says it will run at "x4" only. Does it mean I can't add a second video card as my accelerator/GPU renderer?

    You can, don't read too much into PCIe lanes. It will work fine much like if it was @ 16x.
    Forgive my rants - I can be laconic in Greek if you prefer.

    The gtx 9xxx series won't work with vray RT unless you have version 3.10 or newer only. 7xx and 9xx have different architecture and the support for vray RT was added in 3.10.

    thank you. Im working with vray 3.0, ill go with 780ti then. But will be the 780ti in vray rt performance worth it? Or i should just get a 750ti for viewport, and forget vray rt?

    Hello everybody,
    sorry for maybe off-topic or outdated question.
    We'd like to buy used workstation for AutoCAD/Revit/Sketchup/ArcGIS usage, we are really on budget.

    I've got following offers:
    Dell T1600, Xeon E3-1270 3,4GHz, 16GB, Quadro 600 1GB

    HP Z400 Xeon W3550 3.06, 16GB, Quadro 2000 1GB
    for same price
    and than Dell T5500 Xeon 3,6GHz, 12GB, Quadro FX4000 2GB, for additional 180$

    CPU/RAM is OK in my opinion, but the graphic cards are... old:-(

    I now it is bad, but we would like to simply invest...more but... later (puting this workstation as a second grade workstation), as we are startup "garage" arch. studio.

    Our typical usage: Sketchup modelling, AutoCAD, Photoshop. 10-20% rendering (CPU, V-Ray).
    Last interior model ended 40MB, 3000000 edges / 1500000 faces

    I would go for the Dell T1600, Xeon E3-1270 3,4GHz, 16GB, Quadro 600 1GB way , I'm just afraid, if it is not waste of money, when the quadro 600 will be so unadequate, that we'll have to buy new card anyway. Or for small models the oldish Quadro 600 can still do the work?
    Would 2000 make big difference?
    Does the oldish FX4000 justify the extra 180$?
    Does anyone from you have experience with Sketchup/Cad/PSP and these old Quadros?


    Otherwise we'd go for new, but twice the price, Xeon E3-1231V3 3,4, 16GB, GTX960 2GB.
    Is the GTX960 for our usage ok? Or we can have something simpler, or there are some problems with this chipset?


    Thanks a lot for any hint.
