Some cad/gaming computer advice? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Hey HotButtMud, It looks like you are on a FIRST team too! I'm on 254, and we have been able to do fine on single 8800 gtx's and 4 gb of ram on all of our computers for all rendering, cad, animation, and graphic design needs. More power never hurts, but i think all you will need is 8 gigs of ram and a single 6950. Just for perspective, my 6850 at home is able to handle our Solidworks CAD model for our robot this year with ease.

Workstation cards, and cheap almost never go together. Personally, I wouldn't buy one. We always use consumer gaming cards, and we never have any issues.

We run the following programs:

Solidworks 2009-2011
3ds Max
wind river (pretty glitchy, and sometimes takes some processing power)
adobe premiere, after effects, illustrator, photoshop, fireworks
I can't think of anything else at the moment.

Hope this helps, I look forward to competing with/against you in the future!

I'm going to have to say FIRST team 1086 here, I too plan on rendering for the team this year (getting a 1090t in a few weeks to help render farm my house out). Thanks Kartcrg84 for what you said, that is going to be helpful when I literally render our animations (first time we've done animation) on every computer in my house via backburner.
