On a side note . .found two Quadro FX1800 cards for 45 AUD for both today, not sure if they are worth grabbing for such a low price but I guess it cant hurt to have a few spare PCIe throw away GPUs laying about. (They fall between a 9400gt and a 9600gt being closer to the 9600GT)
The advantage and disadvantage is that they don't need extra power, and don't have extra power. i.e. advantage that you can throw them in a box with weakish PSU and no PCIe power connectors, disadvantage that you can't clock them higher because there's no power to play with.
Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.
