Budget graphics card?

Recommended Posts

My current graphics card is a Quadro 600. This card came out in 2010 and has 1 GB memory and 96 CUDA cores. I know CA recommends at least 2GB.

Looking to upgrade card. with a $250 or less budget.  Using HD Pro 2014 but plan to upgrade to 2018 soon.  Not very tech savy (although I did build my current rig), and  somewhat confused between "work station" type cards and gaming cards - which one is better suited for CA and some basic video editing?    I don't do any gaming.  Looking at the Quadro P600 with 2 GB memory and 384 CUDA cores with Pascal Architecture.

Comments and suggestions welcomed.

The general recommendation for the Chief Architect products is an Nvidia gaming card.

 

Home Designer products are similar.

 

If this were 2D CAD only, I believe the Quadro card would be preferred, but the gaming card helps the 3D.

Solver, thx for your input.   Also looking at the GeForce GTX 1050TI 4GT   which can be had for about $160.   Anyone using this card?
