Graphics card for gaming & solidworks!?!

This appears to be asking for the impossible!....but if anyone has experience of a card that will run solidworks and also run the newer 3d games, (ie DEUS EX 2 which ask for graphics cards with pixel shader) then please advise...

We currently have the Quadro 550 XGL, but it won't run the newer games - and this is a family pc.

We have looked at the ATI All-in-wonder 9600 pro, which seems to be a good all round card, but of course it's not a workstation card....

thanks, Paul

I have the same "problem" I need a new computer and having trouble picking out a graphicscard. If and when you find a solution please let me know.

I use an ati 9800 pro and it's honestly fine, I admit it's not the best at sw but new drivers have dealt with all the major issues it use to have. It doesn't support realview so that's something to keep in mind. End result is: it doesn't hamper working at all and actually rotates smoother than the quadra 980 xgl I've tried.
