I'm an IT worker setting up a new user with Solidworks 2018.
The system we are using works but it is slow. Moedling operations like stretching a cylinder take 30 seconds or so to recalculate and draw. Other
non-GPU operations like saving are slow too - OK for basic office work but not for engineering.
The GPU is a new Nvidia GTX1050 the workstation is an older dell T3500 running w7
We are going to replace the thing but what to buy? I want to get something from HP like a good workstation but it needs to be fast. I'll buy
the GPU separately - they sell a lot of high end GPU cards around here (thank you bitcoin minders)
