I am trying to build a workstation to use for CAD/CAM and CNC control software. I am trying to figure out a good card to use for this workstation.

A lot of people telling me that workstaion cards are the way to go, while others say that modern day gaming cards are capable of handling OpenGL far greater than low-mid range workstation cards. Also gaming cards are far more superior on things beyond OpenGL.

Does SolidWorks use only OpenGL or does it use other configurations such as OGL and D3D?

Mind you, my budget is no more than $150 for a card. It's a temporary workstation on a budget.
