Okay, I know there are tons of threads about this and I've skimmed through most of them but I am not much of a hardware expert so I'd have a few questions to ask.
We've been buying HP workstations for the last few years, everything works fine and all, tough after reading through the threads I realized there was a lot that could be done to perhaps improve the computer without modifying the cost.
So here's what I got spec'ed for a pretty hefty price..
IntelCore i7 8700 @ 3.2GHz (6core)
16GB Ram DDR-4
256GB SSD Turbo drive
Quadro P4000 graphic card
So after reading a bunch of threads, I figured I'd be better off with something around the line of:
32GB Ram DDR-4
256GB SSD Turbo Drive
Quadro P2000 graphic card
I ''downgraded'' the GPU because we don't do renders. I was wondering if that would affect the time of response and SolidWork's speed.
I also downgraded the CPU because of this article : What IS the Best CPU for SOLIDWORKS? By Jeff Setzer | GSC Articles
Tough, I do not understand the whole ''single core vs multiple core'' as the 8086k is a 6-core too as far as I'm aware.
I doubled the RAM because we already have 16GB ram on our 6 years old computer and we're supposed to be upgrading, not staying even.
So what do you guys suggest? I'm not going the gaming graphic card way, staying with professional graphic cards, everything else can be switched accordingly to be improved.
