Hi

I use a PCI Express Graphic card, Nvidia quadro fx 540 with core2duo e 6300 @ 1.86 processor and 2GB DDR2 RAM
As a 3D student I learned on this system
It takes too much time to render a file if there is too much graphic is involved

So My question is, Of which level, graphic card is sufficient for 3d projects rendering? Do they help in Rendering speed also or just gives good quality?
I would like to purchase a card what I can use even if I change my motherboard for future?
(asking this because if you go for advance MB then you need to change processor and RAM)

what motherboard do you have?

also getting more RAM would help.

most importantly what is your budget?

what software are you using?

i do believe if the software uses the cuda cores, it helps in rendering speed. plus more RAM helps :)
