Need a Budget friendly but capable Workstation

Question asked by Andrew Polasek on Dec 18, 2017

Hey Everyone!


I am currently looking for the best price workstation for running solidworks 2018 with motion and simulation.  I am looking for the most budget friendly computer I can get and have pulled a couple of quotes from dell and lenovo for around $1500, but am wondering if I can get something cheaper than that for what I need that I can expand on.  The models I am Running have over 500 Parts in them and the computer I am using now freezes up when I try to run motion analysis.  My computers specs are as follows:


16 GB ram

Intel Core i7- 4910 MQ CPU @ 2.9 GHz, 2893 Mhz, 4 core, 8 Logical processors

500 GB SS drive


Any Help is appreciated.  Don't Know a whole lot about computers and capabilities for these kind of applications.
