    M7820 vs FX 3800M graphics cards

    Sigma Tero

      Which graphics card would be better for a Dell M6500 for use with large assemblies?  I'm more interested in speed of viewing/rotating rather than having perfect looking surfaces.  And I do almost no rendering.

       

      Here's a site which compares them and at first blush it looks like the M7820 might be better for graphics due to the GPU display properties and shader performance (though I don't know if this is as important for what I'm after, fast rotation refresh, than it would be for a gamer.)

      The other thing to consider is power requirements.  I've had problems with the Quadros getting hot.

       

      Thanks folks.
