I know this has been asked a lot, bit I would like a personalized recommendation from someone with a similar setup, or someone that has the knowledge to recommend a card for me.
I need a graphics card because I am working on an old Quadro NVS280 which is horrible. Don't follow my system specs in my signature becuase those are my home system. My work system is a Dell Precision 370 with Windows Vista 32bit and 2Gb of RAM. The Interface is PCI-E 16X, so I'm good in that department. I'm looking for a mid grade card as I can't afford one that's too high end. Maybe $200-$400 would be good.
I need the following...
Vista compatibility (DirectX 10)
SolidWorks 2008 compatibility
Full Real View support
Quadro or FireGL, not gaming card
Given those specs, what it the rock solid, ol' reliable, card. Performance (speed)isn't a major issue as I'll need a complete new system soon, and I'll have the budget for a nice card then.
Any suggestions? I read a lot about the Quadro FX570.
