1600sc Recommended video cards??

Sunday Eve

I need a new vid card for a 1600sc for CAD work.

I tried a PNY Verto, GeForce 8400 GS PCI card. No joy.

A Matrox 450 card works fine.

But I need something faster and more ram.

Using Windows 2003, SP2

Guidance please

Servers are not really designed for use with video cards, most cause resource conflicts. You ought to get a workstation as they are designed for use with AutoCAD and applications of that nature.

I am also trying the same.... I jave a 128Mb ATi Radeon 9250 which is ok....  but now have a new 24" widescreen I want to run on games at 1920x 1200 and the radeon cannot handle it....  if you get sorted with something faster I would be pleased to hear about it...

Thank you for the response.

Knowing what may work is useful.

Now that I know something better than what we are using works, I am encouraged.

But also saddened. Now I need to locate such a card. And hope it will work with this box.

Nothing is as easy as it should be.

Is your card duel-monitor?

And so on.

What make and model is the card?

Ebay has a bunch of variation upon the chip:

Diamond ATI Radeon 9250 PCI 128mb S85PCI128

ATI Radeon 9250 256MB 128-bit DDR PCI 100-436012

VisionTek ATI Radeon 9250 256Mb PCI video card

S9250PLDM128 STEALTH ATI RADEON 9250 PCI 128MB

Oh, what am I to do?

And so on
