OK, here it goes.....

We need some new workstations, I need your help. I currently have a 5 month old Dell 490 with (2) (yes 2) Xeon Quad cores E5335 2.0Ghz, ATI V7200, 4GB ram, dual monitors. Having extreme slowdowns and choppiness in large assembly drawings. Models and parts are fine, but drawings are horrible. Have tried to configure all performance settings to be the least intrusive.

1) Do I need FASTER processors? I thought more cores would be the way to go.
2) Do I need better video cards?

If yes, what are some recommendations??

How is the Nvidia FX1700 512MB vs. the ATI V7200??
