Honestly I wouldn't recommend either of those CPU's. As well, are you looking for advice on a whole system? Or are you just doing an upgrade. It's hard to recommend a graphics card without the budget either. I could recommend a $5000 quadro card... but if your budget is only 1k... it's kind of pointless. | Report abuse Siddeous August 25, 2011 9:49:48 PM Comes down to budget really. New build, upgrade? A good video card is always a must but when it comes to 3D content/creation your best bet would be to use either Nvidia's Quadro or ATI's/AMD's Firepro line for professional cards. | Report abuse mrmaia October 3, 2011 1:50:45 PM legafeur said:Hi, I am at evaluating CPU and graphic card for CAD-CAM system, I need to build a workstaion to do CAD-CAM application and i have these questions that need a bit of brainstorming: -1 witch CPU would you recommande these day between I7-970 and Xeon E5507/2 or e5506/2 -2 for graphic card i have good experience with NVDIA now should i look at ATI and witch would you recommend? thanks for your feedback Legafeur Don't look only for "workstation" labels. They mislead the regular "worker" who has no It knowledge. I do not recommend neither CPU too. I recommend the i5-2500k for you, regardless of budget. The graphics card is a bit more complicated without the budget. But don't get a Quadro please. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Applications>Cpu and graphic for cad-cam system> Related ressources: ForumNewbie CAD/CAM Workstation Build ForumCAD/CAM / Gaming Notebook Advice ForumGood CAD/CAM Rig?
