I have a XPS 625. Service Tag: <Service tag removed> and would like to know what graphics cards I can upgrade to. I plan on buying solidworks.
I was looking at the Dell 8 GB AMD FirePro W7100 will this work.
Save your money to put towards a new computer. That is an 8 yr old model now. Upgrading the video card will not make much difference if any. Solidworks requires newer hardware.

The XPS 625 doesn't meet Solid Works 2017 minimum specifications.
There are however a newer Used Dell Precision T3500's that with a specific card meet all the current spec.
Thanks for taking the time to send over this information Speedstep, Im going to build a new PC from scratch. But I may upgrade some of the components on the current system based on your info.
