Video Card For Eaglepoint LandCaddLocked
I had posted awhile ago for advice on purchasing a computer. I received great info and I was hoping I could now get some additional help.
I use Eaglepoint LandCadd and Sketchup. I use LandCadd all the time, but Sketchup just sometimes.
I purchased a computer. It was actually built for me. It has:
Q9650 quad processor
GeForce 9800 GTX+ video card
This was not the video card recommended here, but I chose to go with a less expensive one than the FX1700.
My problem is that LandCadd will only work decently with the acceleration turned as low as possible/off. When the acceleration is at any other setting, it works so slow that I can hardly use it.
With acceleration turned up, everything else works great, including Sketchup. With acceleration off, things suffer. I can hardly use Sketchup and another program, plus I think things are not as quick.
This means I have to go back and forth adjusting the acceleration!
Nvidia had me install a new dirver and there is no difference. Now they want me to try an older one, which I have not done yet (I don’t know if I should bother).
Eaglepoint said that their software supports open GL (but so does Sketchup!), and that they have had problems with this video card, but sometimes new drivers help.
So now I am faced with either adjusting the acceleration all the time (which is not really a solution for a new computer) or changing the graphics card. Eaglepoint states that the ATI cards work well. I did not choose this to start, because I did not know this, my old Nvidia card was fine, and Sketchup recommends Nvidia.
Any help would be appreciated…any ideas or video card recommendations.
Thank so much.
