Here's my dilema... One of our user will need to render houses and buildings ... So i need to get him an uber machine...

So 1 or 2 processor... will it makes a big difference.
16Gb or 32Gb of ram ...
Quadro 2000 or 4000

Bigger is not always the way to go but in this case what will be the best way....

This is 1 of the solution i was aiming at
http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/ca/fr/sm/WF06b/12454-124...

with an extra 32Gb and a quadro 4000 .. windows 7 64Bits

but will this works for the need of the user, that`s 1 expensive machine to aim for.... or should i cut down to a quad core cpu ... and if I do so will the result pretty much be the same as 2 6cores.

Thanks alot for your help guys !

You don't need two processors for AutoCad one good processor like an I7 with alot of RAM and a good video card is all you need.

why do you need a decent cpu/gpu for autocad? I thought they switched to cloud rendering? (sorry if i got it wrong, i don't do cad)

I agree 1 processor is good enuf for working with CAd.... But for the rendering of the 3d and make it a visual experience for the clients.... more processing is needed ... unless i'm wrong...

Atm with his current compute, doing the render of a building for the client takes about 48hours.... So the main reason of this post is to try and cut this by ALOT...

Thanks guys !
