Upgrading PC

We just upgrade from iv2010 to iv2014.

 

here is ours configuration

inter Xeon w3520 2.67GHz

6G of ram DDR3

video card Quadre fx1800 (not in the inventor recommand list for IV2014)

 

I want to know what you recommand me to do in order to ameliorate ours performances, is it better to add ram or change video card?

For 64b O/S, I wouldn't look at a system with less than 8Gb of memory. The FX1800 card is getting long in the tooth. Since the switch back in IV2008 to D3D the need for a OpenGL card is moot. A good fast gaming card will work well. Look for a good fast "Gaming" computer to run Inventor. Really now a good fast "Gamer" computer will work well for Inventor.

A good/decent gaming card is FAR cheaper than what the FX1800's were running. I got 1gig Nvidia that works great from Best Buy for under $135.00. Mike
