Well we don't work that way, we use auto cad for drafting interiors for our clients approval then we model up the fixtures Etc. in solid works and derive manufacturing drawings from those assemblies that we send out. In that instance I don't know if a workstation card is beneficial but we experience pleanty fo display anomolies when working on the assemblies with the quadro cards we currently have and they are solidworks/auto cad certified as are the drivers. I've worked on consumer cards before with no more issues than I'm currently experiencing with my quadro, I just want to compare outright graphical preformance, that is more what I need. My employer is kinda a penny pincher so 2,000 dollar workstation cards are out of the question, I'll be lucky if I get a 800 dollar rebuild my comp.
I really only need a card that can handle displaying larger assemblies while I work on them, we don't do anything larger than custom drop ceilings but the Quadro FX 570 I got doesn't seem to cut it. I was hoping to find a way to benchmark it VS my 460 I got at home to see if there will be a difference in performance at that same price.
