Question asked by Brian Marchand on Jan 20, 2013
Latest reply on Jan 28, 2013 by Brian Marchand

I am building a system to run Solidworks 2013 and would like the pro's to throw some advice my way as to the specs. I have been researching since about christmas and modifying my list as I go. All my products are from newegg. I will be running Win7 Pro 64bit and solidworks 2013 sp1.

 

I am a Mechanical Designer, the current project I am working on is about 5 gig in size with a few thousand components

 

This is what I have so far, anny comments would be appreciated

 

Thanks

 

Brian
