Graphics card upgrade for T3500 Workstation *help*

Hello πŸ™‚
I have a Dell Precision T3500 WorkStation with a Quadro fx 1800 and a 12 gb of ram.

*I have not changed anything of the hardware.*

I do architecture work.

This Quadro card does a great Job with Autocad and 2d work. But I need something better for doing 3d work too. I need a better card for using Lumion and Blender. 

A friend told me a GeForce card was a better option for architecture work. I'm not sure what graphic card i need for doing stuff in lumion and using autocad too...

What Graphics Cards are compatible with this computer? 

Please help 😞

Blender should run on all systems that support OpenGL 2.1 and above.

The FX1800 is a 768 meg GDDR3 64 cuda core 192 bit  GPU

768  MB GDDRdirectx9 card with 64 cuda cores.

Your issue is the card being SOO Old.

You need a Kepler Quadro Card

 Your system bus is not PCI-E 3.0 so those cards would be bottlenecked.

Thank you for the fast reply πŸ™‚

I use blender in this computer for rendering, but it really is slow. The same thing with lumion, really slow.  πŸ˜ž

*I'm sorry for my bad english.*

This is the program i tried to run in this pc...  https://lumion3d.com/  

I'm not sure what you are trying to say with  ''Your system bus is not PCI-E 3.0 so those cards would be bottlenecked''. 😞 Can you please explain?
