    Need graphics card for f360

    Hey guys I'm looking at getting a new desktop to replace my outdated one and one thing I'm stuck on is graphics card. I was originally set on the AMD FirePro w4100 or Quadro k670 (I think that's the model) but I mainly use Autodesk Fusion 360 and after some research I'm not sure if those would be the best for my budget. I would also like to do some minor video editing but f360 will be the main use

    PC I'm about set on will likely be a dell Inspiron 3847 with i7 4790 processor and 16gb ram

    I use a GTX970 and Fusion is very fast with my i7-5820K.

    I also have the GTX970 from sapphire, just under $200 when I bought it. Seems to handle everything I've thrown at it.

    I think mine is an MSI. Don't recall exactly which model, as I bought it 18 months ago (for $400).

    Well I ended up getting a MSI GeForce gtx 960 2gb for right at $150 shipped which is about what I wanted to spend on one. hopefully it will be a decent card for what I do, I will know I'm a couple days. If nothing else it sure does look awesome!

    My laptop has a 960M with an i-7, and it's not bad with Fusion.
