we would like to buy a blade server to host a specific web application which will use our existing desktop application code base (which is Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) based), to render images and serve them to web clients (simplified explanation). Because of WPF and the nature of the application, this requires DirectX (preferably DX10) graphics cards.
While looking at the HP Blade solutions, I was unable to see how this could be realized, since there is no concrete mentioning of integrating graphics cards to blades. Is this the purpose of HP PCI Expansion Blade? If not, is this possible at all?
And what kind of setup would you suggest for this kind of usage? The number of clients would be around 100.
Thank you very much, your assistance will be very valuable to me.

I am wondering if using a Blade Workstation for this purpose would be a better fit...

No don't think that would make a diffrents in this case and i don't think there are such a thing in C-class..
I would use a DL machine like DL380 G5 or DL580
