I was contemplating the use of a GeForce GTX 295 card in Dell Precision workstation for some CUDA work. After looking up the specs on the various Dell Precision towers, none of them support the required ~290 watts maximum per slot (the closest is the the 7500 which supports up to 225 watts per).
I noticed that it appears the NVIDIA Quadro 5800 uses the same processor as the 285, and the 285 is the single proc version of the 295. So…can I just use two FX5800’s for my CUDA work? What are the gotchas here?
Your input is greatly appreciated.
