My 5500 is the Roswel-m (which they don't make anymore, but is the exact same as the ones there now). People kept telling me that the Quadro Go 1000 wasn't a gaming video card and I was going to have problems running games. Well, I proved them all wrong. I have never had a problem with games on this, it runs anything I throw at it flawlessly, even better than the supposed "gaming" video cards. I can run practially any game at max settings and it doesn't have any problems, kind of yawns and asks, what next, lol. Yeah, your 5500 is not a work station only, you could and should say your "workstation" is a supped up gaming beast. I am going to be upgrading to 2gig ram pretty soon
, then I will never have to worry about stuff for a long while. I was kind of upset awhile back about the PCI-E but a lot of games still don't take full advantage of that yet and probably won't for a few years. A lot of comapanies are still developing games based off the older AGP cards. Only when they finaly upgrade to building on PCI-E based systems then the games will start taking adavantage of that. So, we have a few years before any one really needs PCI-E. Right now, it is just an expensive overkill for what is out there.
