Summary: This card works well for Solidworks. Although not the highest-end Quadro card around it does not seem to have any performance issues with Solidworks 2014, at least for the small to medium size models that I do. I use it with two 1920 x 1200 monitors. Nvidia provides an app that routinely checks for driver updates, and their configuration software provides a wealth of settings. I bought this card used, and for the price vs performance it is a great value.
Summary: Avid MC requires an NVIDIA chip video card. This is a great card with 1GB of video memory. This does everything that the newer NVIDIA cards do but is much cheaper because it is a few years old. I see no reason to buy the newest model if this works well. Avid MC will give an error message with the card because, when you get the card installed, you will probably get the latest drivers from NVIDIA.
Summary: Replacement for a Nvidia FX 580 card in a Dell Workstation. Card worked great and decided improvement with Photoshop and Illustrator. One tiny thing is the card slowed the power on startup of the computer doing an initial self check. Not a big detractor.
Summary: I bought this card on August 2010. Installation was no problem. This was a replacement for the FX580. Had no problem since the day I installed it. I have a Dell T7500 Precision for those who may want to know if it is compatible. Works great with Adobe CS6.
