I planed to buy a new computer for running SW2011 and I want to kwon if someone have try using ATI Radeon HD6870 videocard with SW2011? and if is work well.
Most video cards will work. To work well, you need the ATI/AMD FirePro series. This gamer card will not have all the functionality of a professinal grade video card.
If I was buying a new computer "for SolidWorks" I would purchase the FirePro v4800. I did a few months ago myself.
I'm using a Radeon HD 4850 and it is unstable. Real graphics doesn't work, but that was expected. Once in awhile the view area in solidworks will just go black, can't see the drawing or model. The only fix is to restart solidworks.
