Nvidia Quadro FX 1700 help

I just got this graphics card not too long ago, so i'm still trying to figure it out. When making large renderings using photoview 360 in solidworks, my cpu is maxed out but my graphics card is hardly even doing anything according to my performance monitors. Is this right? Or is my system not utilizing the graphics card as it should? I never see the graphics card load get very high doing anything. I have the latest drivers for the card, so I'm not sure what else to do. Thanks.

System Specs:
CPU: Intel Q8200 2.33ghz quad core
GPU: Nvidia Quadro FX 1700 512mb
RAM: 6GB

It seems the graphics card are used only while modeling in realview mode.
Unfortunately Photoview 360 can not use it.
