Computer Spec's

I'm an architectural design instructor and have 45 stations that we will be replacing next school year. 

We are using AutoCAD 2013; AutoDesk Inventor; 3D Studio Max and assorted Microsoft Office programs as well as Adobe products. 

Current machine specs:

Dell Optiplex 780

Windows 7 Professional

Service Pack 1

Intel (R) Core (TM) 2 Duo CPU

RAM 8 GB

64-bit operating System

ATI Radeon HD 3450 video card

 

These machines are bogging down.  We're married to Dell.  Anything I need to know or avoid when spec'ing the machines?

 

Thank you

Intel Core 2 duo CPUs are great for light duty, and that may be your current reason for slow performance: which ones did you get stuck with?
