    Recommended Graphics Hardware
    BASELINE RECOMMENDATION
    Minimum
    Microsoft® Direct3D 9® capable graphics card or higher (256 MB) or equivalent

    EXCEPTIONS
    OpenGL-capable card (Nvidia or ATI) is required for 3D conceptual
    design using Autodesk® Mudbox®.

    If you are wanting to use ReCap you might want to verify what Opengl version your card can support. We have found ReCap did not work with a Opengl 3.2 graphics card.

    Which 3.2 card, from which vendor did not work with ReCap? I'm looking at replacing a box in the near future, and am not getting solid info on cards known to run with recap from Adesk. Since it's personal mioney, I do NOT want to try a GTX, and then try AMD, and then buy yet another

    You should be able to look up the spec's on the cards your looking at and verify the Opengl version that the card supports.

    From a quick look at the ATI site, the 6000 series cards and above all support Opengl 4.1, the 5700 series cards support Opengl 3.2.

    I would assume that any card in the last 2 years should be able to support it.
