Trying to convince IT to upgrade some work stations. Perhaps its nothing hardware upgrades can fix? Is it just solidworks being bad? Working on 124MB assemblies and it CHUGGSSSS. I mean not only load/save time is horrible (that's to be expected), but trying to rotate the assembly or add/remove/move parts around is awful. Performance seems to be just terrible on bigger assemblies and more complex parts with what we have. Attached is a screen-cap of the hardware. Running SW 2014 and plan on making upgrades (usually a year behind to wait for service packs). Dual monitor (at-least) support is a requirement. I think a lot of the problem lies within the video card being garbage but I just don't know enough to be sure. Open to any suggestions on getting towers running decently. Wasn't sure where to ask and direct SW support seems to be non-existent. Thanks for the help! If more info is needed just ask!
