    That is the card ole dude in another thread posted about. Except they called it a GT 310 or something.

    Anywho, LP design, good wattage use, and awesome for CAD work, which I do. Price should be pretty reasonable too.

    Am I alone in wondering what benefit Autocad could possibly have for a highend Quadro card?
    I mean Solidworks 2009 I can understand which runs like a dog and is very heavy on visuals in it's current iteration, but seriously, Autocad?

    I know several cards and even drivers exists specifically tailored to Autocad but I ask why is it even needed?

    It isn't reasonably price though. It is a ass raping price the green camp will buy on the name.

    But more power to them.
