Im not sure if this is the right place to post this but heck i'll give it a try.
I have lightwave and every thing seems to be going fine, except when i load big or complcated models in both layout or modeler (mostly in modeler). I need to be able to work on more complicated projects ... so i was told i needed to get a better graphics card. I had a geforce mx but it never worked and i hear it sucks.....so my question is whats a good card to get??? i just want one that works good for like $300 or $400? it would be helpful if you tell me the ones that you guys own that would be great.

thanks for your time

Since lightwave does not have specialized drivers written for it to take advantage of the openGL acceleration, then just buy a good gaming card. DO NOT get a pro card for lightwave as it would be mostly a waste of money. Lightwave as it stands now (I don't know about 9) gets most of its redraw power from the main processor in your computer. Sure a good gfx card will help some, but not as much as it should with an openGL application like this.
