I am sure this is yet another "what do you think?" thread for my pending hardware purchase. My compnay is finally rounding the corner and we are in need of hardware upgrades. I have been trying to design hotels on an old dual core machine / Quadro FX 3450 and /3 GB swith (4 gb total) on XP. It's time for an upgrade and I am taking it on myself to build a new machine.
I will be putting Win7 Pro for OS.
- What other consumer grade GPUs do you guys recommend? I don't think it's worth going for a workstation grade GPU that is x2 the expense and lest cores and speeds. Is the 560 TI a decent match for Revit 2012? At home I am running a 580 GTX but I don't think the office would appreciate a larger expense. But, there is no way I want what
brand XXXX was going to put in the machien for the same cost (an ATI 6670...lame).
- Have there been any concerns running Revit on a SSD. I run 2 256GB SSDs at the house and find it's amazing slow to generally operate without an SSD. Is anyone else running on an SSD?
Give me your thoughts on the compents above. What you would cut out or add in.
If you have lots of memory, the hard drive will not be accessed
that often anyway. I prefer the control I get with a hard drive.
But hard drives are probably not in the future, so I don't know.
