I am looking for a System Layout of what I will need for a New setup. This will not do any gaming. Stricty an Solidworks, AutoCad setup. I read other forums and either they wanted to spend more or it was a gaming/solidworks setup. And I do not want either. trying to stay more practical
I would like to stay around the $1500-$2000 mark just in the case. I have the monitor, keyboard, mouse etc. SW models could be up to 200 in some cases.
I have been readin about the AMD 6 cores, but I can not figure out if those will out perfrom the I7's or not.
It does not matter where I order parts from either.
My boss would prefer us getting laptops for traveling with, but as far as specs they are more restricted I think or am I wrong? If so what is a possible laptop to run SW as well.
^ First off, you should make sure that the apps that you will be using are highly multi-threaded, then only the 6-Cores would have a good advantage over the Quads,...
Also I have seen that many 3D rendering apps favor higher clock speeds more than number of cores,... http://www.javelin-tech.com/main/support/solidworks_201...
Both the i7 and the 1090T(This setup would be cheaper overall) is very much possible within the lower-end of the budget,...
So what am I looking at for parts. 8-12G of memory, 1000 watt power supply, Quadro 2000 ( I am not sure how good this card is for $400), and correct me if I am wrong then, but a prossesor speed is more important that the amount of cores? So a 3 Ghz is better to have than a 2.4 Ghz ?
I buildt a super gamer at home with raided GTX 295's etc, but for a work station I know I do not need all that so thats why I am asking for some insight on a better setup for at my workplace. Although my gamer at home can rock SW no problem, I don't think my boss would like the price tag on it lol. So part advice would be appreciated as I am not really sure what a work station needs.
Thank you, with the 1kw PSU, i was reading some other posts and some of them had the 1kw listed for their system. Now the ATI Firepro is not supported by Solidworks. I am not firmiliar with the firepro at all. Does it offer the same stats as a Quadro?
I missed it but what do I need teh SSD for? Additional storage? with 3 raided 1TB's? Confused here lol
