CS5 + Cuda + pcie 1x?? will it work?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Okay, here's my plan:

1. Buy this card http://halifax.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-s...AdIdZ263247482

2. Install it here:



Questions/Possible Problems:

1. Do you think I can get away without having a riser? There doesn't seem to be any components in the way and I would insulate the motherboard from the exposed part of the card.
EDIT: yes I need a riser... I dont wanna dremel out something fixed to my motherboard :/

2. I am running crossfire, does this disable my 1x slots? or if not would running a card in a 1x while running cf (8x/8x) drop the bandwidth of one of the main pcie slots down?

3. Will I see any benefit when using the Cuda enable CS5? Will they be greater than the benefit of 4gb more ram?

4. Is there a better option to increase encoding/rendering performance?


Let me know your thoughts on this.

Thanks

1)Riser or dremel are your choices.

2) your x1 slots are still enabled. you x8/x8 slots will be unnafected

3) no idea

4) switch to SLI Quadro 6000's....
