  1. I need help identifing a video card I salvaged from an evicted home. I did not steal this card! The police were at the house and told me taking things was completely legal. So if you could help me I would be thankful.

    The pictures are on this page:

    Such low-res images don't help much..

    Just plug the card in a computer - it should report its name at startup as long as you remove/disable all other video cards..

    The problem is that the card is to long to fit in the PC. And sorry about the low resolution pics. I have a really old digital camera that takes floppies! I bought it of a friend for $10.

    That looks like a PCI-X card. Not PCI-Express but PCI-Extended... or maybe AGP Pro. Seems to be meant for a server.

    Can you get a close up of the two chips off to the left half of the card? Like a close up as in close enough to read what it says?

    Done. Although I don't think it'll help much.

    And I beileve that it goes to a server as well. After all I got a free server today. Salvaged from the home as well. However the server only has PCI slots. No PCI-X slots.

    Yes, it's a 64-bit card probably from a workstation (Mac?) or a server, but as long as you can fit it to a normal PCI slot, it should work.

    On the new image, I see some writing on the top edge of the card. Have you looked any of these strings up?
