I am looking for a graphics card, price range $100 - $250. I have dual monitors (1920x1080) I want to run on dvi, and use the system mainly for my engineering courses. I have done some research
and know that I want one of the workstation cards and not a gaming card, but havent been able to get much beyond that, especially as it seems a lot of the workstation cards dont say they have win 7 support.

For those who can use the details:
The system bogs down if I have more than 3 or 4 parts in an inventor assembly, and with 20+ I can crash autodesk inventor if I am not careful.

AMD Phenom II X4 975
16gb DDR3 ram
Whatever graphics capability that came on my motherboard.

I was a little hesitant with that particular card (and others like it) because they do not say they have win 7 support. I was wondering if anyone could advise me on that aspect as well. As a side note, I have also begun to use the same machine as a media pc (blu-ray drive, digital copies, etc.) and was wondering if a workstation type card would affect this.
