    pc-dmis v4.0
    System Requirements
    Minimum Requirements:

    Windows 2000 or Windows XP 32-bit Operating System. Note that Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, and Windows NT are NOT supported and PC-DMIS 4.0 will NOT function on computers using these operating systems.
    1 GHz or higher Intel processor.
    256 MB of RAM. More RAM may be required if working with large CAD models.
    500 MB of free hard drive space minimum for the application.
    SVGA graphics card capable of OpenGL shading. (We cannot specify the exact Graphics card because every user has varying needs). Note that Nvidia GeForce video cards are not recommended. These are defined as "gaming" cards according to Nvidia Engineering.
    SVGA capable monitor.
    CD-ROM drive.
    USB Port
    Recommended Minimums:

    Windows 2000 or Windows XP 32-bit Operating System.
    2 GHz or higher Intel processor for improved performance. Pentium 4 or higher processor recommended.
    512 MB of RAM or higher. More RAM may be required if working with large CAD models. You should have RAM equal to 8 times the size of your largest CAD file. (For example, if you use an IGES model of 250 MB, then 2 GB RAM is recommended)
    1 GB of free hard drive space plus enough for allocated Virtual Memory equal to 8 times the largest CAD file used.
    SVGA graphics card that supports OpenGL shading and that has WHQL (Microsoft Windows Hardware Quality Labs) certified drivers. These drivers can be downloaded automatically when using the Windows Update software.). On board video card memory should be based on the size of your largest CAD file. For small CAD files (less than 50 MB), 32 MB video memory. For medium CAD files (50-100 MB), 64 MB video memory. For large CAD files (> 100 MB), 128+ MB video memory.
    SVGA capable monitor.
    CD-ROM drive.
    USB Port
    Depending on your specific needs, the recommended system specifications for this version of PC-DMIS may be much higher. A more substantial computer system may be required to accommodate part programs using Automation or complex Reporting objects. Be sure to consult with your PC-DMIS distributor to find out the type of computer system you will need in order to run this software at its optimum capability.

    Basically what they are saying is that they recomend a card that is made for professional workstation applications (CAD) (eg. nVidia Quadro, or ATI Fire GL).
