  2. @Why_Me
    Thanks a million!! Cant find any flaws with that setup atal and it suits my needs perfectly!!
    Legend!!
  3. The suggested Specs are good over all. How ever since you are going to be using the system mainly for Graphics/video editing I suggest few improvements,


    Graphics:
    Consider purchasing a dedicated workstation video card, like ATI Fire pro series or NVIDIA’s Quadro series . ATI’s FirePro V5700 512MB, comes with three year limited product repair/replacement warranty ($389).

    To view the recommended cards by soldworks visit the following.

    CPU:
    Add £60-70 more and go for Intel i7 860

    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/172754


    Memory:
    Video applications are memory hungry, since memory prices are record low, it makes sense to go for 2 x 4GB.

    OS:
    Windows 7 64Bit
