I’ve just signed up to the forum hoping to make good use of it. I recently got my B.S. in Aerospace Engineer and I’m eager to learn SOLIDWORKS from the ground up. I want to make good use of the Student Edition, follow On-Line Courses, Webinars and finally take some Certification Exams.

Finally, I want to use my savings to buy a PC able to handle these and future tasks as I don’t own one and used those provided by my university. I made a tentative configuration based on the X570 Chipset from AMD but I’m having serious problems deciding what GPU will work better for me. Video games are absolutely not my thing and I’ve no interest whatsoever in gaming; on the other end I love coding and run simulations.

Surfing the web, I came across the Nvidia QUADRO RTX 4000 and this seemed to me a good compromise between price and power.

What are your thoughts? Every help will be highly appreciated and forgive me if I wasn’t clear enough...English is not my native language!

Thanks all in advance!
