I need to purchase a new desktop optimized to run SW2010 simulation as my laptop just isn't cutting it. Models will not be overly complex (50k elements maybe) but I will be running a lot of them and would like to optimize solve time. Should I give any specific requests to the IT department (minimum RAM/processor speed/GPU), or will any old typical CAD rig do the trick? I presume that the recommended requirements given on the box are somewhat broad in order to maximize the potential customer base.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
