Step 3 : Install The Quadro Driver & Verify

After rebooting your PC, Windows XP/Vista will detect your GeForce card as a Quadro. Install the latest NVIDIA Quadro driver which you had already downloaded earlier. Then reboot the PC again for the driver to complete its installation.

The next time you boot up, your GeForce graphics card will start using the NVIDIA Quadro driver and you should be able to benefit from a tremendous performance boost in your favourite 3D rendering application.

To verify, you can run GPU-Z again. It should now identify your graphics card as a NVIDIA Quadro. In this example, you can see that my NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS is now identified as the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4600!


That's It!

So, there you have it. Three simple steps to soft-mod your GeForce desktop graphics card into a really expensive NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics card!

Again, I have to stress that unless you intend to use it with a professional 3D application like 3ds Max, you will not benefit from soft-modding your GeForce into a Quadro. But if you work with such applications, well, you have just saved yourself a huge bundle of money! Happy modding!

If you want to find out what works with this soft-mod, head on to the next page!
