My company is getting new workstations to work with SolidWorks and, at the moment, the choices are the HP Z600 Workstation or Dell Precision T3500.


They have the following hardware:


HP Z600
Processor: Intel® Xeon® Processor E5506, 2.13GHz, 4 MB cache
RAM Memory: 8 GB (2 X 4GB), PC3-10600 ECC DDR3-1333 ECC- 6 Slots
Hard Drive: 500GB, SATA 3.0Gb/s, 7200rpm
Video Card: NVIDIA Quadro 4000 2GB
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64Bits

Dell T3500
Processor: Intel Quad Core X5630 2.53GHz 12M
RAM Memory: 12GB, DDR3 ECC SDRAM,1333MHz, 3X4GB
Hard Drive: SATA 250GB 3.0GB/S, 8MB Cache
Video Card: NVIDIA QUADRO FX1800 Dual DVI com 768MB

Wich one would be the best choice?


Some stuff can be changed at these machines to get a optimal pack.

Any suggestions? I really appreciate
