I am new to this forum.. I am planning to upgrade my GPU, but I'm not too sure if I should upgrade the CPU as well...
I find it quite slow to open some large assemblies in SW and sometimes they stop responding...
My current setup:
-Core i7 2600k 3.4GHz CPU,
-Quadro 2000 graphic card
(I know they are quite old...)
I use that PC to run:
-Solidworks 2013 with an assembly containing about 2600+ (number of components).
-And also Keyshot renders.
I was thinking about upgrading:
-GPU to either Quadro m2000 or m4000 (but not sure which one.. I do know they are not the certified one for SW2013, but I think it will be still worth it)
-(If I need to) then CPU to i7 6700k 4.0GHz (4 core) or i7 6850k 3.6GHz (6 core)
But I'm not too sure about spending more money to get a new workstation, because i7 2600k is still good enough, I think...Please address me if I'm wrong.
-which GPU would be suitable
-and whether I should upgrade the CPU or not.
