      Very trustworthy video card recommended by Dell

      This is the video card that came with my Dell Precision T7400 and is our rendering super computer. It's now a little out of date, having been supplanted by newer Nvidia cards.

      Physically I've got it connected via DVI, given that there's two DVI outputs I think you can plug more than one monitor in, but I haven't tried this.

      The FX1700 has 512MB of video memory, which isn't a huge amount but in a machine with 16GB RAM it's not an issue. We do rendering with Artlantis, Maxwell, Photoshop, Cinema 4D, and ArchiCAD mostly and so far the FX1700 has performed well. It's been used in about five commercial rendering projects over the past year or so and there have been no issues. It can handle enough antialiasing to create smooth surfaces at a resolution of up to 3000x2000.

      The Nvidia drivers the card uses are quite reliable, we haven't had any graphical issues on any of our rendering or CAD packages and it has passed all bench tests instigated by the developers of the forementioned software products. Although it will probably need replacing to capitalist on the newer features of the software in the future it can still create work that clients are very happy with.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      The company BALLICOM uses false advertising offering the Pny Nvidia Pci-e Pny Quadro Fx 1700 Pcie Retail at £144.55 when in reality the product is PNY nVidia Quadro FX 570 256MB PCI-E 16x Dual DVI-I Graphics Card. A much inferior card. They do it on purpose using headlines with the name of the better card and the small print with the lower card. Very MISGUIDING!!
