What's your budget?

It really depends on your budget and how many monitors you'll be using. If you're going dual monitor, you could get away with just using a GTS 450. You could go for a 5770 if you want to do triple monitor through Eyefinity. Either of those cards should be sufficient for running Autocad.

If you read his post carefully, you will see he is asking for worstation cards only

In our office, we are currently using this... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814133324

If you're not willing to spend that much, I recommend something like this for Civil Design since rendering is not a concern... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814133354

Hey guys i also am looking for a graphic card for running AutoCAD and STAAD pro ( Both are Civil Designing software)

My budget is under 100$, also I am not looking for a very high end designing right now, i am just starting out designing so i can't invest too much right now.

Would you recommend going for a workstation card or rather sticking with a gaming Graphic card ?

Please Someone do reply, I need to buy this ASAP !!
