Question about 3Dlabs Wildcat VP880 Pro (256 MB) AGP Graphic Card
Unfortunately there has been a long history of issues with the Wildcat VP880 Pro cards, especially with their driver software. I worked on a network that included workstations running those cards and working with Solidworks. We struggled a long time with trying to make the systems stable as they exhibited some of the same issues you describe. We dialed back a lot of the details in the objects that people worked with. This went a long way towards better stability. We made sure to try out all updates to the drivers and patches, although we made sure to be able to roll the machines back if the new software caused more problems than they resolved. In the end the company rid themselves of the VP880 Pro cards as they felt that they had to dial back the resolution and other aspects of the Solidworks program so much to get any stability they felt it was too much of a trade off. You're already running AMD rather than Intel which is one of the other items that helped with the stability issue. We also found that boards that had the AMD Nforce chipset seemed to achieve more stability than a lot of the other boards we tested. Unfortunately all of my research as well as the research completed by the users themselves, never found a definitive fix/patch/trick/swap etc, that solved all of the problems. Hopefully at least some of this information will aid you in your quest.
