    Hardware Compatibility

      Hello,

       

      I am buying a new laptop that will need to run SolidWorks (not professional level), but I want it to be able to play games as well. I need mobility, so a desktop is out. The higher-end workstation Firepro or Quadro cards are out of my price range, so I'm looking at a workstation NVIDIA K1100M 2GB or a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M 6GB. I know that the 870M will run circles around the K1100M while gaming, but will the 870M stand up to Solidworks? If it matters, here are the other system specs:

       

      Model: Sager NP-8268-S

      Processor: i7-4810MQ with integrated HD4600 graphics

      Graphics card: Either the K1100M or the 870M

      Hard drive: 250GB mSATA SSD with 1TB HDD

      RAM: 16GB 1600mhz

      Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate

       

      Thanks!
