Is this the right Graphics Card

Our office just recently bought a new Dell Precision T3600 Workstation boasting an-
Xeon E5-1650 3.2Ghz
16GB Ram
But -
Dual1GB ATI FirePro V4900  (ie 2 cards total 2gb Video ram)
So is the graphics card suitable for our new Lumion Pro? Or do we need to avoide FirePro and/or Quadro Cards as suggested on the forum? Need to know urgently thank!!

Hi akshay910, the ATI FirePro V4900 just about meets the minimum requirement for Lumion (1,464 PassMark points vs the 1,500 that are needed for simple scenes):

If you're only going to use this PC for Lumion, dual cards are a waste of money since Lumion will only use one of the cards.

Generally speaking, I'd strongly advise everybody to read the hardware requirement guidelines in this post before purchasing new hardware:
