Hello Experts - I am looking for recommendations for a high end CAD and rendering workstation.  I work for an architectural firm and on occasion we have need for a very fast machine to render CAD drawings, create walk-through animations, and convert large amounts of data to PDF files.  I'd like to buy a really high end machine that my users can share when they need to run a very resource intensive operation.  In the past I've used Dell Precision workstations and while they are fine I'm hoping to find machines designed specifically for the tasks I mentioned above.  Please let me know what you think, thanks!

I have ordered many Dell Precision workstations and its an option but I wanted to see what other companies are out there that might cater specifically to the type of work we're planning to do.

I really like HP Z workstations, you've got 3 types to cater for low end: developers to high end: CAD/Video Edit/Rendering.

Very powerful, well designed and with good support.  Easy to upgrade or replace parts from an engineers perspective.

HP Perfomance Advisor, for example is a really good program to help you maximize what you have and how to get more performance from you box. And it's free!
