    firepro which version suits me best ?


      Recently I have started to use  Solidworks and have issues where my PC closes down during the rending process.

      After reading a few articles on the internet, it seems if I upgraded my graphics card to a firepro this would eliminate my issues.

      Is this the case ?


      I currently run

      OS - windows 7 ultimate 64bit

      motherboard - Gigabyte model (to be filled by O.E.M.)

      Graphics  - AMD radeon HD 7700 series

      Processor - AMD FX 8320 eight core processor (8 CPUs) 3.5 GHz

      memory - 16384 MB RAM

      directx 11


      My questions

      1. Which version of firepro would I need to buy to use solidworks with no issues?,

      looking on the AMD website there are versions 2270, w2100, w5100, w9100, s400, w5100 ranging from $100 to $4000

      I am a CAD designer, not a graphics card expert so it is all a bit confusing.


      2. would this be compatible with my system as I was looking to upgrade my graphics card, not the whole system if possible.

      Any assistance would be much appreciated as I really need to get this problem fixed ASAP so that I can get back to work.
