    Pc hardware questions

    Hey guys.. i am trying to build up a pc for large models on Revit...(about 500mb files)
    I am not really good at picking the right hardware, but after asking around i have this list..
    I have not idea what kind of Grafik card would i need... Any advice? or even suggestions if i choose anything
    that is not needed!

    ASUS TUF Z270 MARK 2

    Intel Core i7-7700K 4 core (Quad Core) CPU with 4.2 GHz
    G.Skill Ripjaws V 32GB DDR4 K2 3200 C16 32GVK
    Samsung SSD 850 EVO (Basic) Series 500GB
    &
    WD Blue Desktop WD10EZEX 1TB
    Corsair RMi Series RM1000i PFC 80+ Gold modular 1000 Watt
    Corsair Hydro H115i Extreme Performance CPU-Kühler



    Thanks guys!

    Depends on your use and wallet.
    If it's everyday modelling creating drawings and such, then just get a nvidea gtx card (the faster the better).
    AFAIK the only place one would realistically benefit from using a Quadro is workflows outside of Revit.

    If you are doing renderings and using plugins/3rd party programs regularly that can utilize more cores on the cpu I would go for a Xeon processor instead.

      And, unless you plan to overclock CPU, there is no need for water cooling.

        I would consider something similar to this

        • Case: Silverstone TJ08B-E (14.72"H x 8.27"W x 15.16"D) (other good options exist)
        • CPU: Intel i7-7700k 4 core/8 thread 4ghz boost to 4.5ghz Kaby Lake
        • Motherboard: Asus z270g ROG STRIX (WIFI/BT4.1) matx (if atx is needed let me know)
        • RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V 32GB 2400mhz (2x8GB), (you can go with faster ram though gains are small)
        • Video Card: EVGA GTX1060 6GB (or higher depending on budget, RAM capacity is really the deciding factor today)
        • CPU Cooler: Noctua u12s 120mm air cooler (or Phanteks PH-tc12dx - pictured below. Cooler master hyper212evo if tight budget)
        • Storage 1: Crucial MX300 1TB M.2 SSD (ACHI Protocol) (or less depending on budget, try for at least 500GB)
        • Storage 2: Optional
        • Power Supply: EVGA G3 750watts Gold Rated Modular (1000watts is way overkill unless multiple GPU)
        • Optical Drive: Optional
        • OS: Windows 10 PRO 64bit (Kaby lake and Ryzen require it, go skylake 6700k if win7 is needed)


        Hope this helps, it will look something like this when done

          I have read a lot about grafik cards! Is it so bad to have a gaming grafik card and render with revit or 3d max, instead a let say more professional grafic card?

          I cant understand the differences
          thanks

            You can use an Nvidia Geforce gaming card and render fine with supported cuda plugins. The main reason to get a workstation card is for "official" support from the software developer. If there is a GPU acceleration issue and they see you use a Geforce card they will say it is not supported and probably not go any further. Most people I deal with are happy to use Geforce except for the only exception I can think of is Solidworks (and probably other Dassault software) which the Realview feature will not enable unless on a firepro or quadro card.

            It is all politics sadly. For what you described though it sounds like you will have a good time with a Geforce card.
