What's the best computer setup for running AutoCAD and Revit


Recommended Posts

My desktop PC recently fried so now I need to buy a new tower to do my AutoCAD 2010 and Revit Architecture 2010. I'm a student just finishing up my associates degree in computer drafting and I will be starting a cad drafting business shortly. I need a computer that is reasonably priced and upgradeable, has enough memory, RAM, and VRAM to do all my cad work, some 3D modeling and rendering and run my Microsoft Office software. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You. James

OK, I'll bite ;)




Acer Predator:

Intel Core i7 930(2.8GHz)

64 bit Quad-Core Processor

Turbo Boost Technology up to 3.06GHz

12GB DDR3 1333

1.5TB SATA 7200RPM

NVIDIA GeForce GTX470 Graphics with 1280MB of Discrete Video Memory


not bad for $2,000 USD

Sure it's a game rig but I bet it will run CAD and Revit
