Hi friends.


I've been asked by our R&D director to get a desired spec for updating my PC.


we've recently purchased solidworks 2018.


my current PC spec is:

windows 10 64 bit,

Intel Xeon CPU E5-1620 3.6GHz

memory 16 GB

graphics card Quadro-2000.


Its a 4 year old PC and I find it exauhsting to work on solidworks with it.

my work profile and spec for the new PC are as follows:

* work on assemblies of 500 parts and more.

* multiple degree of freedoms mechanisms (again a lot of parts 500+)

* analysis - standard mechanical analysis.

* simulation - love it work with it quite often.

*quality and render - need real view graphics. (important for the graphics card spec)

* speed - Speed speed speed!.. I hate that it takes 1.5 min to load a large assembly.

* PDM - I dunno if this derives something from the spec but we start using PDM very soon.

* life span - I want something that will be very good for the next 4 years lets say.


that's it friends, I hope you can recommend a very good PC spec for me.
