Question asked by Ole Aasvestad on Oct 5, 2011

Today's hardware is Dell Precision T5500, E5520 Xeon, 12GB RAM, Quadro FX4800, 64-bit.

Have partially every day problems with this system. Hang ups, and needed re-starts.


We use SW for simple parts and few assambles, but it getting heavy to handle cause of lot of drafts, fillets and use of extruded text in our parts.

We also do a bit of rendring.

Has received offers from dell, and need advice.

Are there any good enough?
