Looking for a certified graphic card

I'm looking to switch 2 graphic cards inside our workstations as they're not approved by SolidWorks anymore and seem to have a few little problems. I looked for a list of certified graphic card and couldn't find one. I know I can search through the driver database but I don't find that to be very friendly-user.


I was thinking of going with an nVidia Quadro P2000 but I wasn't sure if the card was going to stop being certified within a year or two or not. I haven't found anything about this.If I remember from what I read a while ago, cards remain certified for 4 or 5 years.


So I guess, my questions are as follow.


Is there a list of certified graphic card by SolidWorks?
If so, is there a list of when those graphic cards stop being certified?

If not, how does someone know what is the best choice to make when switching graphic cards? I don't want us to invest money and then have to explain to my boss that I picked a card that had 1 year left of certification because there wasn't any documentation about it.
