Hi all,

Was wondering if anyone here is into 3D graphics. I am an artist and was interested in running a 3D program but this guy that created this software said that I would need a card that fully supported 3D grapics in order for the program to run. So I wrote him back and said that I had a Matrox G550 and had the drivers updated. but he said that that card was not good enough. Then what is?? :crazy:

Any suggestions and please NO expensive cards. I'm not rich, YET!! :king: So my funds are not in any bracket to where I can blow money on those really high end ones. I saw the new NVIDIA card and I was blown away at the prices ($900.00 + ) WAYYY to much for this boy!!

More like $100.00 or there abouts is where I am. So if there is a card that is truly a 3D graphics card that is affordable I would love some info on it and a link or two.

Thanks so much, as always!!

I think your best bet is to go to the source - what is the minimum hardware requirement for the software package.
