Hi Guys
I am running an Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo, E6850 @ 3.00GHz with 3.25 Gb of Ram. I use dual screens and my Video card is Quadro FX560. When I am working on large assemblies I sometimes run out of virtual memory and Solidworks shuts down. Yesterday I was putting a large assembly on a drawing sheet and shading of some of the parts would dissappear. I have always had a suspicion that my Video card needed upgrading and have been hounding my boss for an upgrade. He has finally agreed and we are now looking at getting an Leadtek Quadro 4 FX3700 PCI-E video card which is worth about $1600. Is this card worth getting or should i be looking for something else.

Cheers Dee
