Is anyone using a Nvidia Geforce card?
What is the best Nvidia to use? I don't see much from Autodesk for recommendations for Autocad 2008 and Windows 7 32 bit.
Thanks for any help,
Will

GTX260 here with no problems in Acad '08, '10, and '11 and Revit '10 and
'11. It's not on the Adesk certified list though the last time I checked.

The GTX260 was one I was considering. So no problems 3D ing?
I just don't want to stray from their recommended list and find out the card isn't compatible.
Do you think any of the Nvidia lines will work?
Thanks,
Will

no problems with 3D in Acad with this card. I have no idea about other
nVidia cards. The GTX260 was recommended to me by those in the know in
the hardware forum and it's worked well for me

I posted the link to the drivers and didn't notice that they were for XP and not Win 7 until after I posted them, so you might want to disregard the driver link.
