Hi,
 
  Does anyone successfully set up ATI FireMV 2400 or Nvidia Quadro NVS440  video cards on WIndows 7 32/64bit computers?
  I know the manufacturers website have XP or/and Vista Drivers only. But I am curious if there is someone out there who managed to get these installed on Win7.

Normally there are compatibility drivers already present in Windows 7 that will talk to the card. You might not get the same amount of performance out of the cards, but for cards that old you're not really going to be getting much in the way of performance anyways. In some rare cases, the Vista drivers can be also used in Window 7.

Do you have an AMD FireMV 2400 PCI 256MB Graphics Card (Model 100-505115) or AMD FireMV 2400 128MB Graphics Card (Model 100-505130) ?

Model 100-505130 is not compatible with Windows 7 (32 / 64).

NVIDIA Quadro NVS 440 (PCIe x16 version) should work with Windows 7 built-in Drivers.
