    Good graphics card for Solidworks?

    Matt Finley

      I've finally convinced the powers that be here to take this seat of Solidworks off VMware (PC over IP) and get it's own dedicated box. It was literally taking 30+ seconds for complex parts to rotate. And mouse-overing items in the tree would auto-highlight the items on the screen and if there are a lot of edges, it takes a real long time. (I think I have the settings right but it still does it)

       

      Anyway, I've been looking for a good graphics card to get so I looked at Graphics Card Drivers | Hardware & System Requirements | SOLIDWORKS but that's just a drop down list assuming I already have one. I don't and want to know what's a good one to get. Doesn't need to be thee best, but has to be slightly above the basic requirements for Solidworks.

       

      THANKS!
