My System Specs

Dancing_Banana Recommend me a Workstation Card.

Requirements:

Dual display supporting at least 1920x1200 each (DVI preferred but DP to DVI adapters can always be obtained)
At least 512MB
not to expensive
Good OpenGL support (I'm thinking Ati's still not up to par in this area)
At least 128bit memory bus

Ultimate end use is 3D PCB design work. The software recommends a workstation class card.

FX 1800 maybe? Looks like a crippled GTX 260 192sp by the specs.

LOL

Workstation fx cards are not well known in the enthusiast community. The 1800 should serve you well.

PNY FX 1800 has arrived.

- Pretty pathetic packaging, the blister holding the card looks like it was supposed to be held into place by a flimsy insert glued into the place, this had let go and the card was rattling about.
- cooler looks cool
- They included a SPDIF cable for audio
- yay I have Nview again.

Card. Been a while since I saw a newer Quadro card in the wild.

The shroud is brushed aluminium and the artwork is actually silkscreened on, not a sticker.
