I have a Dell Precision M90 with the following specs:

Intel Core 2 T7400 (2.16 GHz)
4 GB ram
250 GB SATA HD
Nvidia Quadro FX 2500M video card (current driver 7.15.11.7570, Nvidia Control Panel 1.5.700.61) - interesting note: does not recognize Solidworks on my system.
Vista 64 Buisness
Solidworks 2008 (sp 3.1) 64 bit
3dconnexion navigator
microsoft wireless mouse


The performance has been terrible, I suspect the issues are related to video drivers. I have tried several that I have found on several sites with some level of improvement. So, my question to you is have you found a driver that works well for you? I typically work with large assemblies (10,000 + parts). I am almost ready to scrap the 64 bit and go back to XP 32, shame though to go backwards. I really like the Vista 64 look and feel.


Thank you in advance for you help.
