Nvidia Dual Cards: Quadro with GeForce possibilities

  1. With reference to this thread:
    vb/topic23018

    I have a Quadro FX 3700M card on my workstation for various CAD programs.. I am searching for a way to perform a software or hardware modification so I can play games and run other programs requiring a GeForce card.
    Is there any way to possibly run two non-similar graphics cards side by side, or task designated/sharing?
    So I could actually run CAD software on the dedicated Quadro, while relying on an externally connected GeForce card for all other media, pics, music, games, etc…
    Any other money saving solutions besides buying/building a desktop?
    I’m on a 64bit Vista workstation (soon to be Windows 7 or Ubuntu w/ a Windows VirtualBox) 3GHz Intel Quad Core 2 with 4GB RAM from Xi Computers.

    Best regards,
    Uriah
