NVIDIA Quadro M4000 not being detected by Nicehash OS.

I recently got an NVIDIA Quadro M4000 With the intent to mine bitcoin with it. When I boot up my bitcoin mining PC, it says that there is an error on the slot where I have the quadro plugged into. then, when nicehash OS boots, and starts to mine, it doesn't detect the card and just mines with the other GPUs that are in the PC. what can I do to fix this? Thanks!

I'm looking for a sub $100-$150 gpu that can sit in my PC and mine through nicehash 24/7, profitability isn't an issue for me as I don't pay for electricity and every penny that I'd make would just sit there until I need to buy a game or a Xbox live subscription again.
the older quadro cards appeal to me because they're dirt cheap and have a low TDP. I'd be fine with a light overclock,and who knows, maybe I'll think about using them for CAD work or video editing down the road.
here's what I've found:
- [this]1 a quadro k620
- [this]2 a quadro k4200
if you have another option, I'd be happy to explore it, I'm a broke student, so anything over $150 is WAY out of my league.

legality and mining method questions

hello,
So its been a long time since i touched monero and i really backed away when washington state became aware of the bitcoin craze.
So here are a couple questions and please tell me if there is some were better to post this question(s)
Sorry for the multiple questions im just trying to learn more before i get back into the mining.

When to buy a GPU and what GPU to buy?

I will be going off to college in a few months and need to upgrade my old stock pc. My cpu is an i5-4430. I will need to run all the standard engineering programs (ie solidworks, matlab, etc) as well as some flight sim software. I am also planning on playing some games like R6 and Ghost Recon. What gpu should I buy? Also, should I wait for prices to go back down or will they still be high when I leave in August?

Why would I want a NVidia Quadro card over a GeForce GTX product?

This is a real question. Are the CUDA cores missing in the GeForce line? Is there something absent or crippled about the GeForce line or is the Quadro line really special in memory throughput and some other function?

Beginners basic guide to building your own PC as of early 2018
(EDIT: Sorry for being a MSI/Corsair Fanboy)
Heres a collection of thoughts to consider when building your own personal PC
As always Id personally use PCPartPicker.com to configure your parts and for further thoughts on compatibility.
First off building a computer is 100% based around what you plan to use the computer for.
Here are a few uses and generic ideas of what to go for. Audio Editing: Lots of small tasks that need to be completed quickly without lag. - Fast Processor( >4GHZ) - Fast RAM (MHZ) -At least 16 gigs! - Fast Storage, SSD manditorily - M.2 or PCI for best performance. - Shitty Graphics card, graphics card there only to keep the cpu from doing other tasks when working. - Can be a few generations or years old. - Many screens for lots of plug in windows to be open Video Editing: Lots of large to render and files to read. - Multi core processor the more the merrier - SSD for fast read/write of large video files. - Insane graphics card, AMD graphics cards are debatibly better but the nvidia Quadro series are specific for video rendering. Gaming: No more than 4 cores intense graphics card - 92% of games are not coded for more than 4 cores so why spend the extra money for it. - SSD for quick load screens - Nvidia cards, 10 series, the higher the number the better. Titan cards for MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE! Coding: quick processor for lots of small tasks. Ergonomic peripherials? - Dear god please dont use a mechanical keyboard so that your coworkers dont kill you. Home office: Everything can be a few gens behind so you can get the best power per dollar spent. - Sorry that Gateway doesnt exist anymore. I guess try Dell...

10 minute rule btc or all coins

i know bitcoin has a rule of 10 minutes you have to submit a share or you dont get anything i was wondering does all coins use the same 10 minute rule or is it just btc?
i am mining x16r and no matter what overclock settings i use it does not make a difference in the hashrate so i am wondering if x16r does not require overclocking because it does not have the 10 minute rule thereby you can get a share on some of the earlier cuda nvidia cards like the quadro 600 witch only has 96 cuda cores and is very unprofitable and would time out on btc.

What size farm would make CPU mining worth it?

I am completely new to bitcoin mining and know very little about it. I am sure I have not been the first to have an idea like this either, but here goes.
So after reading this article, I started wondering how feasible it is to do this at my workplace, since I am the sole Network/Sys Admin in the company.
It occurred to me that it would be trivial to deploy bitcoin miners via group policy to all 80+ of our workstations (most of which are decent machines: Core i7 with 8GB RAM is typical) and set them up to do hashing on a schedule...say, after business hours for example.
My question is, setting aside the ethics of this, would this setup even yield any coins within a reasonable time period to make it worth trying if I wanted to go solo?
I guess I could also invite most or all of the 20 servers sitting in our datacenter to the party, but I have no idea if that would make things better or worse in a scenario like this.
Thoughts?
Edit: I should also mention that many of the workstations have NVidia Quadro workstation graphics cards in them, though I'm not sure whether those would be more efficient than the CPU.

[QUESTION] Newbie First-time Monero Purchases - Criticism/Advice Please

Hi Monero Gurus! I have spent a few days researching crypto in general and Moneroj specifically and I reached that point where I needed to dip my toes in the water to start properly understanding what I'm doing...
Here's my story so far - I would appreciate any pointers. Note that I'm not expecting to make megabucks, I'm really just playing for interest's sake.
-Experimented with mining, but realised my computer's not really up to it, even though it's a fairly good spec with Quadro graphics. I reckoned I could make around £200 per year.
-Decided to buy some Moneroj. I set up a Moneroj wallet on my local PC and read the easy guides. No problems so far...
-First I bought Etherium for cash using Coinbase (decided not to touch Bitcoin, as it seems mental at the moment). No problems.
-Then I paid a about £50 of Ether into a Bitfinex account (testing the water). Seemed to work OK.
-Schoolboy error #1. I learned that I can only exchange $ or BTC for Moneroj.
-So I exchanged all the ETH for BTC and used the BTC to buy XMR
-Then I tried to transfer the Moneroj to my wallet. No dice. Minimum withdrawal around 0.95XMR :(
-OK, in for a penny, in for a pound. I bought another £200-worth of ETH and repeated the above. Now I have 1.10226516 XMR, which I went to withdraw.
-Question #1 or schoolboy error #2? You tell me please: When withdrawing, Bitfinex wanted my wallet address (naturally) and also an optional payment ID. I did not know what the latter was, so I left it blank and ignored the warning - after all, I'm not actually "paying" anyone, am I?
-Bitfinex has approved the withdrawal and I'm waiting with bated breath for it to show up in my wallet. Currently downloading the blockchain, so it may be a while yet.
-When I opened my wallet (Windows GUI version) and clicked on "receive", I noticed that it would generate a payment ID for me. Doh! Schoolboy error #3.
-However, when I investigated further, I found that my wallet would generate a 16-character payment ID, yet Bitfinex will only accept a 64-character one. Huh?
The £64,000 question is therefore "have my Moneroj disappeared into the great beyond, or will they turn up once my wallet has synced the blockchain?"
For a bonus, the next question is "how should I have done this?" :)
TIA for helpful comments, brickbats, trolling, what have you?

Using both Nvidia and AMD in one PC

Hey PCMR, Just wanted some verification on something before I purchase a part.
Currently I'm running two 580s and a Quadro 420. The 2 580s are SLI and are used for gaming, while the 420 runs my four other monitors (i have a hex setup). The 420 and 850's don't play very well together, as I have to run an older driver on the 580 for the 420 to start.
I'm looking into purchasing a AMD 7750 EyeFinity, which supports up to 6 monitors, and replacing my Quadro 420. I don't need anything fancy out of the 7750, as it will only be rendering my desktop, while the 580's do ALL of the gaming.
I've read here and there that both Yes it will work, and no, it won't. Most information is in regards to bitcoin mining, which I have no plans of ever doing.
Your thoughts?

What Graphics card do I keep?

Sorry, I know this is coming to be confusing already. I currently have a nice computer, 16gb ram, 7700k with a coolmaster 240, asrock 270, 650watt psu 80+ bronze, 128 ssd, 1tb hdd. But I didn’t buy a card because I thought I was getting a nice one from work. I was wrong it’s a quadro 4000. I thought it was the m4000. So I’ve been in need of a card since I built this in August. Space is no issue, I have the full nzxt phantom case. But I am getting some donor computer soon both with quadro k2000s which apparently are very close in spec with mine and can’t be ran in sli to utilize both. I have to keep one of the 3 cards for a basic box my girlfriend will use for Facebook/ Youtube etc. my options are to use either the other k2000 or continue to use my quadro 4000 or a recommendation for a not insanely inflated card from bitcoin. I mainly do design, catia/solidworks and animation and rendering scenes in keysho
