I thought about trying it but my budget doesnīt allow it right now. But the suggestions you made I would second. And no there wouldnīt be a softquadro needed and I assume it should work on 5x.xx drivers, but you will never know what bricks and stones put in the way by nvidia and Iīm pretty sure that they were aware of that possibility.
On the other hand I donīt think that it would improve much on my system being an Athlon XP 1800+, I just thought about the nifty effects that I could have in DCC applications and Unwinder said that in his eyes the NV30 is to weak to be considered a good solution for whatever, the problem with the not proper working pixel shader units canīt be overcome with software solutions I think. But I canīt really comment, I can do all the stuff with my SQīed Geforce 4 Ti4400 and thatīs just fine, so sorry I couldnīt gave you a real information, just my 2 cents.
