Hi All,


I'm an IT worker setting up a new user with Solidworks 2018.


The system we are using works but it is slow.  Moedling operations like stretching a cylinder take 30 seconds or so to recalculate and draw.  Other

non-GPU operations like saving are slow too - OK for basic office work but not for engineering.


The GPU is a new Nvidia GTX1050 the workstation is an older dell T3500 running w7


We are going to replace the thing but what to buy?  I want to get something from HP like a good workstation but it needs to be fast.  I'll buy

the GPU separately - they sell a lot of high end GPU cards around here (thank you bitcoin minders)
