I Was surfing around the new egg site looking for a suitable up-grade to my Quadro 600 GPU and after an hour of reading and searching I found a Quadro K2000 w/ 2gb memory and supposedly a direct replacement (which is good) Now I am having trouble finding out if this card is Autodesk certified, why I am wanting an upgrade is that when I am revolving a Navisworks 3d view exported from Revit as an FBX file it sticks and moves very slowly while using the view cube to rotate the image, this is a problem because when I record my way through the project and it sticks on me it causes me to have to lengthen my video and I am trying to keep it short (under 4 minutes) so that we can email it to various people if wanted. But that is only a side benefit, we just really want the video to be nice and smooth and not slow down or stop while creating it, any suggestions or comments??
There are a number of things that affect performance, and the video card is definitely one of them.
I would also make sure the RAM meets or exceeds the stated requirement on the page below:

You can also check the following page for a list of tested cards.
well the graphics card thing has not been fully resolved, But after talking with our IT guy (finally one that worked in a large design firm) he was telling me that they had problems with the quatro cards and switched to ATI cards and it resolved the issues related to the video cards, You know how it is working in a design firm you find the problem then you have to get quotes and then wait for the budget to bear the cost (almost there) when they tell me to get another card I will get with the IT guy and find out what one is the best one for my system.
P.S. I will up date this post when it happens so I can give card type ect.
Well you know the old addage Hurry up and wait? well that is exactly what has happened here I had to go to our IT provider and make sure the card I had picked was plug and play with no funny business then get pricing and have it applied to the new budget for this year (not sure if all of that happened yet) but as far as the card goes I selected a quadro K2000 as it was a direct replacement for the card I hav now. So thanks for asking about this as it remindes me that I need to re visit the original request for it.
Not resolved yet, The wheels of a company at times grind to a slow really slow pace in this case, still working to get it resolved I chose a Quadro K2000 as it is a direct replacement haven't got it as of yet still hopeful.
