Who can sponsor us a graphics card?

Post by MichaelTremer » February 22nd, 2016, 1:38 am

Hi,

as you know the IPFire Project has moved into a new data center. We would like to move one of the old servers to the new rack, too. For that to move we need a low-profile PCI graphics card in order to be able to extend the network ports of that server. That is a bit difficult to find though.

I was hoping someone in the community has something like that left over and can send that to us.

It should have a VGA port and a PCI (not PCIe!) port.

You can reply just here :)

Hi Michael,

the only I found in PCI is a Nvidia Quadro NVS 280 PCI.

So you can drive a dual screen with your server ;)

Just send me a PM for further details.

Greetz,

Ist eine Club3D PCI mit DVI und VGA Anschluss. Ob die noch was taugt für moderne Systeme weiss ich nicht aber ist ja sowieso nur für einfache Aufgaben am Rack, oder?

Die Kerbe bei klassischem PCI sitzt hinten (5V). Bei deiner Karte sitzt er vorne (3.3V). Das ist wahrscheinlich eine PCI-E.

Ich tippe eher auf eine PCI-X 64-Bit Schnittstelle. Die sind ab/aufwärtskompatibel, so konnte man eine PCI Karte in einem PCI-X Slot betreiben und anders herum. PCI-X ist nur doppelt so groß weil 64 nicht 32 Bit...
