Hello, im building a system for solidworks, here is the config:
Core i7 920 D0 2.66ghz @ ~3Ghz
Asus Maximus II Gene
OCZ Gold 3x2GB DDR3 1600 1.65v cas 9
Corsair VX/HX 600 or 650watts
2x Seagate 7200.12 500GB OR Samsung Spinpoint f3 500gb (HD501HJ) @ RAID1
Windows 7 Ultimate X64
but, i don't know which card to choose, FX1800 or Fx580?
i use solidworks to draw Chairs and tables (wood), small and simple things, but, the drawings have everything (including: holes, screws...) and sometimes i make sets, like, six chairs and a table etc...
I only design to have technical drawings, to send to production...
Sometimes 3500 leads to crash. But there are some bugs in Solidworks too.
3500 never let me down.
No problem with leaving several drawings open, 580 will take care of that.
To be on safer side, just save your work,as soon as it's done, to keep ourselves out of trouble!
All the best for your new build!
