Kevin, I did run an Nvidia GeForce for awhile, and it seems to me, (the untrained eye), that I did see a slight improvement when I "upgraded" to the Nvidia Quadro series. I don't know that it was significant enough to justilfy the difference in price, but that is another issue. The only time that I can honestly say that I saw a noticeable difference in video quality was three years ago, two years before I even started fooling with Solidworks, when I upgraded from an ATI Radeon to an Elsa Gladiac, or Gloria, I don't remember which one it was. However, we are talking, over 128 MGB of memory difference, and maybe $475.00 of a price difference. Don't need to call Scotland Yard to figure that one out. At that time, I was involved only with Autocad, and there is absolutely no question, that the video quality had improved measureably.

I've got a GeForce 7800 on my home machine, considering it was under $80 I'm pleased and almost impressed with it. I haven't tried to open any 1000 part drawings yet, but for smaller stuff it is just about as good as my old FX1100 at work.

We did use geforce cards, with quadro hack for 2-3 years in our group, with no noticeable pb. Now w've had FX1400 for over a year, and the difference is not so obvious.

So can you still use this Quadro hack on the current cards and where do I find this hack?
