If I disable realview is my model still running through the graphics card? I have Quadro FX1700 but the assembly is so big that realview needs to be off... but if i do that am i running this on the onbord video?
Yes, your UI will still be driven by the graphics card when you toggle RealView Off.
To toggle on/off your graphics card (Use Software OpenGL) you need to change the setting under System Options without any SolidWorks files open.
For your card you want to be using the FX1700, so you so do NOT want to toggle Use Software OpenGL on.
