The video card is very slow/old compared to all other parts in your pc..
And for Lumion the videocard is the most important part!

A 1.5 gb 460 GTX is also able to run a lot of Lumion projects though.

I'd like to have a 480 or better but the 460 seems just fine for now as I am learning. I'm working on a moderate size/complex model covering about 1000 sq meters and although it is not quick, it is very good and considering the amount of terrain I am able to sculpt in a few minutes...well I am very happy. :)

A 480 is perfect but a 460 will do fine and offers great value for money. Many architectural projects use loads of big textures so getting a card with loads of memory is a good idea.
