We are having tons and tons of problems in my engineering department and I am looking to buy a machine that will hopefully increase their productivity. They are currntly running on Intel 1.8 GHz processors with 1 GB RAM, nVidia Quadro Pro 2 Video Cards. We are using AutoDesk Inventor 8 to generate our 3D Models, some assemblies take up to 5 hours to complete. I am looking at several options and wanted to get some opinions.
1 Processor - 2 Processor
1 GB Ram - 2 GB Ram
Video Cards??? (Possibly the 3D Labs Wildcat 7110)
SCSI vs IDE
Anyone have suggestions for me???
