Can I use a normal PC video card (ATI Rago Pro) on an IBM RS/6000 7046-B50 Server?
Posted on 2004-08-17
I bought an IBM RS/6000 7046-B50 server to have my own AIX at home to play with. I got a used one.
Now that I am going to install it, it has no video card !!!! I have checked, and IBM video cards for it are extremely expensive (USD$250= and up), and it has 2 PCI slots empty. Will I be able to use any normal PCI video card used on a normal (Intel) PC ? I intend to use an ATI All-In-Wonder Pro (PCI) that I have running around at home.
If what I propose is not possiblre at all, what do you recommend I do ???
