SketchUp Pro relies heavily on the OpenGL 3D technique. Therefore we recommend to choose a card that supports this technique 100%.

We recommend cards with an nVidia chip, such as the GeForce and Quadro series. The Quadro are the best, but the most expensive. The GeForce cards in the higher system (GTX) usually work fine.

What almost always goes wrong are video cards that are soldered on the motherboard (onboard, intergrated, ...). They also often share the system memory and support 3D OpenGL very badly.

Do not confuse a Gamecard with a 3D card. Games also use OpenGL only they do not use all the instructions of this technique. For comparison, they do not use all letters of the alphabet. The game cards often do not know the whole alphabet. And then you'll just see that you miss letters that SketchUp uses ...
