After failing to convince my IT manager to buy a proper workstation (DELL T3500 Xeonx4, 12GB RAM - £800)
I have just sourced the components myself from the web;
Phenom II X6 1090T CPU
6GB 1600Mhz RAM
1TB SATAIII HDD
X24 DVDR/W drive
Windows 7 x64 Pro
I will be using my current ATI V3350 FIREGL video card in the new setup.
All this adds up to £650
Question is, is this rig good enough to complete good quality renders in Solidworks/Photoview 2011 ?
Also, it apparently has to have a three-year no-upgrade condition :-(
