    Did you have to modify the inf for it to work? I'll download it and try it tomorrow I'm up and running but on 3.82 build which won't support the newer games (i.e. borderlands 3 which I was able to recover the save...)

    I just modded the inf because I Have a Tesla M6.
    Nevertheless,it won’t hurt to modify it anyway.

    Is that a better card then the 980M? Are you running it in a M6800? Anything special that had be done or just plug and play with an inf mod?

    GeForce 980M, Quadro M5000M, and Tesla M6 are all comparable; they each have the chip and almost the same specs. Tesla would be least preferable because it does not have any display outputs and does not work with Optimus disabled.
