Best sub $200 card for AutoCad 11

My kid just got AutoCad 11 free from school, under the condition that he have a computer that can run it. So, I'm gonna build him one. The cards recommended by AutoDesk are for professionals and are priced accordingly.

Anyone have a recommendation for an "Affordable" card that'll allow AutoCad to really shine?

Thanks,
Peter

  1. CAD is very simple compared to modern video games; you can use an old 9800 GT off ebay.

    For $200 the fastest card you can get is the GTX 460; I would not get an AMD card since nvidia supports CUDA which is used in many 3D modeling and architectural programs.
