What is your ideal computer for solid works. I am an IT technician who is supporting a user having issues running Solidworks Simulation premuim. Mostly it's just incredibably slow. The computer is an older cad workstation. I have been instructed to see about buying him a new one.
Main question i have is what does Solidworks benifit from having? Is it thread intensive or does it do all of it's processing on 1 or 2 threads.
How much ram is enough?
How heavy does it lean on graphic's? Will a quatro 3800 512mb card handle it.
I have setup a few computers for other engineers that are running Revit or Tekla software. Those 2 programs benefit from having more threads available. Any guidance would be appriciated.
