When I looked at the Solidworks website for the system requirement, I found out the certified cards & driversare mostly professional versions:

Meanwhile, Anysis prefer nVidia.

I hope others with experience on these can advise you more as what I can offer is just google power at the moment. ;)

32k Rs == 570 USD right?

Add Nvidia Quadro 600 (1gb) for 150$ and you get $570.

I used an american / canadian website, if you give me an indian website I'll be able to tweak this build according to prices there.

Anysis is supposed to work well with Quadro, but just in case you know something we don't, AMD FirePro V3900 is an excellent bargain for SolidWorks and other CAD applications, it beats the Quadro 600 no problems and costs about $30 less (which can be used for more RAM or better processor).

Hi

Thanks for the quick reply.I really appreciate solving my headache on this.I have some doubts too . Is over clocking improve the performance of my system ? I had searched on google and if we looking for over clocking go for i5 2500k processor and mob asus p8p67 pro . I don't know is it necessary for my working environment.If it is a good option i can compromise something on my budget.Hope i can hear from yo soon

Generally speaking you should build the most powerful system you can afford. The only concession you need to make to Solidworks is to use one of their approved boards. Personally, I recommend Nvidia over AMD/ATI as the latter has always had buggy drivers. If you fail to use one of the recommended boards and drivers you will have problems with SW tech support.

Hi ram
Thanks for the response.This is my current configuration
  1. Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor
  2. Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboar
  3. 4 GB ddr3 1600
  4. ATI FirePro V3900 1GB Video Card/ Quadro 600


My doubt is if i use around 80$ mob and increase graphics card memory to 2gb will increase my performance of the system.I heard to use over clocking, better mob is needed.i am not stick with my i5 over clocking processor. I am willing to take any good suggestions from u guys.
Thanks

You will see little or no improvements in SW from over clocking. Unless you're gaming it's a waste of time and if you intend to game you will need a different GPU as the gaming & pro cards have completely different drivers. I've been using a Quadro 600 for about a year and have no complaints. Which GPU you use depends upon the size/complexity of your projects. Ask SW tech support.

Hi ram

Thanks again for the instant response. I think i5 2500k is mainly used as an over clocking processor, Do u have any other good configuration on my current budget, It help me to take a decision. I am so confused now.

I think you're over thinking this. If you take my advice and forget over clocking you can save a little money on an i5 2400. You can't go wrong with an Asus MB. You won't need a CPU cooler. RAM is cheap and easy to pick. Get the Quadro 600 unless you think you will have more complicated projects. I don't know how to convert your currency so I hope this is within your budget. Good luck.

Ok thanks ram for the valuable suggestions. I am going for i5 2400 with asus MB and Quadro 600
