The IT department are going to replace my desktop PC and are proposing the following
Dell Precision T3600
Xeon E5-1620 Quad Core 3.6Ghz Turbo 10Mb
Win 7 64 bit
2Gb Nvidia Quadro 4000 graphics
256GB SATA SSD
1TB SATA 7200 Hard Drive
Can anyone comment on this specification for Civil 3D use - it looks ok to me
No idea - IT handle all that, I just use it...
If you don't actually need a 1TB hard drive I'd go with the 500GB, 10K RPM SATA. It's a bit faster and you wont be able to keep everything on the SSD. Otherwise it looks nice.
Thanks for the feedback - seems like IT have chosen well...!!!!
Looks good to me. The only thing that I would check is that the video card is supported or recommended by Autodesk...
Yes I checked that out but Civil 3D isn't listed - although I presume that the card would be ok?
Yeah I know. I always use the Infrastructure Design Suite. That way it covers all the software that we use.
Just getting used to the new hardware.......
