Absolutely. I was actually about to suggest that to you. However, make sure
that you get a card that will actually give you a benefit. For example, I
like to use a 8*24*GC as my preferred video card, but this would actually be a
*bad* choice with the Q700 as the GC accelerator CDEV seems to freak out on
'040s. Without the CDEV, you only get 8*24 performance (and internal video
would actually be faster). 

A Radius card would go nicely in a unit like this, though.
