    Quadro or Gaming card for SolidWorks?

    hajime hajime

      Hello,

       

      Some people in the Autodesk Inventor forum suggested me to get a gaming card such as the GTX590 instead of the Quadro 4000 or 5000. The reason is that "It's my understanding that since Inventor moved away from OpenGL to DirectX, workstation cards aren't really a necessity like they used to be."

       

      Is this the same for Solidworks? Given a choice, which of the above cards would you choose to put in the HP Z820 workstation? High performance and silency are important factors.
