Hi,

 

I'm trying to put together a spec for a new workstation and I can't seem to find anything up-to-date.

I found discussions regarding CPU's but I can't make up my mind on what's best for SW?

 

Here are my current workstation specs:

 

HP XW8400, 5160@3.00GHz

16GB RAM, 320GB HDD & 160GB HDD

Windows XP Pro x64

NVIDIA QUADRO FX4600

Solidworks 2010 SP 4.0 & PDM Workgroup

 

Our assemblies range from 500-2000 parts with about 200 unique components.

Some of our parts are imported.

 

I also use PhotoView 360 occasionally for assembly & parts rendering.

 

Thanks,

 

Bob
