Hello Jaskanwar, ShamSab

I need urgent help!

My Boss is impresed with phenom config performance that you suggested.

Now he is willing to go for Core-i7 config.

Please suggest a nice config with core-i7 , costing about Rs.40000/- (if possible).

Application is as usual modeling, solidworks and autocad.

I need this little urgent since boss is about to go out of station for three weeks.

If you are reading this, please reply urgently (kindly) ...

Thanks in advance and Take Care,
Vishyvishy

Hello Sir,

It AMD Phenom IIX6 1055t

Now we want to build (Assemble) a new PC with core i7 processor with good mother board and graphic card.

So , I need core i7 based PC configuration where I can run modeling software (Solidworks) smoothly.

Vendor is waiting for the for configuration details.

I have committed to email him today only so that he will give his quotation as soon as possible which I will approved from my boss.

So Please suggest some really nice conf with core i7 (or anything that you feel better to suit the need) which will cost around Rs. 40,000-42,000.

Thanks and regards,
vishyvishy

can you tell which graphic card you currently use with solid works?

I assume you wont overclock.

Intel Core i7 2600 @ 15k
Gigabyte GA-H67MA-UD2H @ 7.5k
Corsair 4GB DDR3 1333 @ 2.3k
Seagate 500GB 7200.12 @ 1.7k
Corsair VX450W @ 3.5k
NZXT Gamma @ 2k

Total - 32k (excluding the graphic card)

alternate mobo - Intel DH67CL @ 6.5k
and dont call me sir :). i am 17.

Excellent config Jaskanwar. Very well balanced. Since gaming is cut out of the equation,any midrange card will suffice. Solidworks has excellent support for cuda so nvidia cards are recommended. The MSI Gts 450 @ 6.8k will be very good. For a more beefy card, try the Gtx 460 @ 10k.

Don't forget to add a good ups from apc or numeric. APC 1.1KVA @ 4.5K will be a very good option.

AFAIK solid works supports only firepro and quadro. Thats why i asked which he uses currently.

One thing-i7 has become affordable. And that processor competes with 980x!

You were right jas. Solidworks has got no support for gaming cards because the drivers don't support them but only workstation level cards. Quadro's are very expensive so firepro's must be a good option.

Let the op comment more about his gpu requirements.

Ohh!! nice Thanks!


Intel Core i7 2600

Since I am not in office, cant tell the graphics card,
But Still use whatever you suggest!

Let us see what my Vendor quotes!

Thanks a lot to both of you for this real timely help!

ATI FirePro V4800 @ 11k will be a good option. Since you won't overclock, opt for the intel board and save 1k. Save up some more and get this card. This is the best that i was able to find.

Lets see what others suggest.

Thanks!

...But ATI FirePro V4800 @ 11k looks little costly...

Jas Baba ... can you please pick a card for me!

regards,

Then try Sapphire Firepro V3800 512 GDDR3 @ 7.2K.

Sapphire Firepro V4800 is available @ 10.7k in lynx india.

If you are on a tight budget, then go for v3800 but the latter will be a bit futureproof.

Both have same amount of shaders i.e 400 in vliw5 architecture. But v4800 has faster gddr5 memory, faster clocks and offers higher bandwidth.

Check THIS review and decide.

Also THIS for solidworks performance.

V4800 is highly recommended for your kind of work. So save up and go for v4800.

Dare To Be Naive.
you may also get quadro fx 580 for around 10k.i saw myself someone buying it from smc internatinal.i think they must be having some more.

Jaskanwar's configuration combined with firepro v4800 or quadro fx 580 would come around 42-43k.

it's the best machine you can get for that price.

is it that solid works not run in any gaming card? or it runs slow?


Yes, solidworks drivers does not support any gaming card. Only and only workstation class cards are supported. A gaming card will be rendered useless when running solidworks with absolutely no benefit.

those who wants to run solidworks should read this thread once: tom's hardware.

but do remember, its long & really confusing. i went through 2-3 posts there & must say, the replies are random.
