PNY nVidia Quadro FX500


I am looking for a good graphics accelerator for my main CAD box. I've pretty much decided on a PNY nVidia Quadro FX500 (found a really good price locally). I remember seeing the nVidia Quadro 4 chips on some Linux hcl a while ago, but don't know where. Does anyone have a Quadro adapter that works (or doesn't) with Linux, or otherwise know about its compatibility?

Nvidia Quadro FX500 cards are supported by the nvidia linux driver,
ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li....0-5336/README
http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-5336.html
I highly recomend that you read the README before you install the drivers.
