not saying this fits your situation but I have helped people that had jobs that took days and we got them down to low numbers of minutes with some modeling technique help. Avoiding no penetration contacts can save enormous time and there are ways to avoid or minimize them and still maintain the same load transmission paths. You may have other issues and maybe hardware is the way to go but frequently it is not the best approach.
Sorry, very slow catching up on the forums
However, I do agree with your reply, and I am very acutely aware of how to speed-up the simulation, but I have to do a lot of parametric studies. These can take upwards of 10 days to complete.
Sadly, unlike Vignesh I only have a single 6 core Xeon, so to be able to crunch the numbers on a GPU would make my task soooooo much quicker.
As the whole process is very repetitive, it would be ideally suited to GPU's .
I have several enhancement request with SolidWorks at the mo, but they all get ignored.
Must be too busy with playing with the colours lol

As previously mentioned, solution time can usually be saved by fine tuning the study setup (solver selection, contact definition, mesh density, other study options, etc.) Replacing your computer for a "better" one should not typically be the default option.
This being said, you may be interested in adding yourself to the notification list for the enhancement request number 594233 entitled "Support of GPU hardware (Tesla C2070) for Simulation for faster analysis"
All good thing to take notice of (fine tuning etc)
However, most solid works users are sitting on huge processing power of the GPU just because SolidWorks needs it.
Why not use that power to make the software seriously quick.
And why not do it before the completion does
