    Another new computer for Revit thread -- points of view

    Finally I managed to convince my boss to buy a new computer.
    I was thinking to the following configuration:

    MB: Asus P8P67 Pro rev. B3
    CPU: Intel Core i7 2600K 3.40GHz box
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR3 1600MHz CL9 Dual Channel Kit
    Video: EVGA GeForce GTX 560 1GB DDR5 256-bit
    HDD1: SSD OCZ Vertex 3 Series 120GB SATA-III 2.5 inch - Would an Intel 510 be better?
    HDD2: Samsung 1 TB SATA-II 7200RPM 32MB rpm Spinpoint F3
    PSU: Seasonic X-660 660W
    Display: DELL U2311H 23 inch wide black X2

    Others: DVD-Writer LG GH22LS50R, Case: Chieftec Giga Miditower DF-01B-OP

    Price: $2,460+$331 (Win7 Pro x64, Office 2010)

    Please post your comments and opinions.
    I use: RST 2012, ASD Steel, Reinf, Navisworks, ACAD 3D and sometimes RAC2012.

    Regards,
    Lucian. :beer:

    That would make a great gaming computer....

    Looks good to me.... I probably would skip the SSD and get a 10k RPM hard drive instead, but that is me... Having a second HD for personal files works pretty good too in case your primary drive goes down or you switch computers a lot.

      I would take in consideration a 60GB SSD if there will be any complaints.

        Don´t do that! I´ve got a 80GB SSD for the OS (Win7 64) and my main software packages (Autodesk Premium Suite 2012, MS Office, PS and Adobe) and am constantly fighting to keep it from filling up! Go for a 120GB SSD, or no SSD at all....

          Indeed 60GB SSD is way to small. I have a 120Gb one at home with just 35GB free, so do the math. I do have a 4GB game on there and the Adobe Creative Suite, but even without that you still be above the 60GB. I have a 2TB harddisk in here as well for storage, so I do keep an eye on where I put my files. So get a bigger SSD or a Western Digital VelociRaptor if you are going for speed with a more affordable price.
