Thanks for your suggestion. I do have a question, what is it that you look for in a card that makes it good for this application. What I mean by this, is I have seen a 1 gig card for $30 and then I have seen them for a whole lot more then this one.
No gaming is definately not a requirement. The first time I have even noticed a problem with my video card was this week when I downloaded this simple cad program. i've had no problems with my current system even watching streamed video's or photoshop edits. But I guess 3d rendering has completely different requirements then video streaming.
