Video card hardware assistance
I'm building a pc to run autodesk, rivet, specified requirements sit here: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet...112&id=8479263
Got most of it covered but would request some assistance regarding the video card. The card that the computers come with here, (ordering for company and through company suppliers) is there ATI Radeon X1300 Pro PCI-e 256MB, getting a different card may prove tricky, so basically is this card good enough for the job, supporting OpenGL Spec 1.3?
Or are there obviously better options?
Thanks in advance for help.

Um, hasn't nVidia's opengl support always been faster/better than atis?
Anyway with regards to that card, some poking around the net shows me that the card supports openGL 2.0.

How many programs and games actually use OpenGL?
Anyway, I found this on a random site
Features: 256 MB DDR2 memory. Ultra-threaded Shader Model 3.0 architecture. Avivo Video & Display platform. DirectX 9.0 and OpenGL 2.0 support. DVI+VGA+VO. CrossFire Ready. Linky

If this poster agrees with you, you're doing something very wrong.
I don`t really know Autodesk Revit, but with other Autodesk programs such as 3ds Max and Maya, the GFX card is only used to draw the viewperf and not the Final Render, which is done by the CPU.
Here are the spec for the x1300
