Hello I am a design engineer using solidworks.  We have recently started using photo view 360 to make images for our catalogs and brochures.  For our brochures and catalogs our marketing department likes to use larger resoulution images,  recently I have been making a frame width of 2000 and a frame height of 1350.  I have run into the problem that my current PC could take from 5 to 6 minutes just to render one image.  Our IT deparment is in the process of upgrading my PC but they have some questions.  What is the limiting factor on photo view 360? Is it the graphics card, Ram, or processor or a combination of the three?  Do 64 bit systems work faster than 32 bit systems for photo view 360?  What kind of rendering speed should I expect with a frame width of 2000 and a height of 1350.  What would you recommend they upgrade my PC to?
