We have been using Dell's for quite a while and were never really sure if we were getting the best systems for Solidworks.  We have expanded our shopping and the latest propsal is from BOXX TECHNOLOGIES,


Intel i7 Quad Core Enhanced Performance Processor 4.3 Ghz

16GB DDR3-1600 (2 DIMMS)

NVIDIA Quadro K2000 2GB 240GB SSD SATA 6Gb/s

20X Dual Layer DVD±RW Writer

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional Edition 64-Bit


Model Specifications


Intel Corei7 Quad Core Enhanced Performance Processor Intel Z87 Express Chipset

. . (1) DVI Port

. . (1) HDMI Port

8 Channel HD Audio

. . Front panel mic + audio out

(1) S/PDIF Out (Optical)

(6) USB 2.0 ports:

. . (2) Front, (4) Rear

(6) USB 3.0 ports:

. . (2) Front, (4) Rear 550W Power Supply 6.85"w x 14.6"h x 16.6"d



How do these look for day to day Solidworks use, we do a lot of surface and complex forms.  NOT a lot of huge 100+ part assemblies, and only a little rendering with Bunkspeed.


The other option was a:

Dell Precision T5600

Six Core Xeon E5-2630, 2.3, 15M

16GB RAM (4X4GB)


Nvidia K2000 card.



I think this new Dell should perform much better with the higher clock speed, right??



I think we are also waiting on one last proposal from HP, but not sure.
