    New Revit Machine

    looking at building a new revit machine, just got a new project and the model is 500mb before we have even started working on it.

    what kind of proccessor and graphics card would you recommend, im reading conflicting things, not sure if to go for an I7 or an I9

    Cheers

    So many threads about this already.

    For just Revit:
    Basically more clockspeed is better.
    No need for an expansive Quadro graphics card and good GeForce is more then enough 2070 for example
    The most RAM you can afford, but that depends a bit on your projects, but with 500mb already 32 would be where I would start for sure.

    That would be pretty nice to work on for sure.
    I think those 9900K's can be overclocked pretty well too (why it is in the overclock bundle I guess) so you can have the 5Ghz all the time.
    I would make sure though that the extra 16Gb that you buy is the same as the 16Gb that comes in the bundle.
    Other then that, this is pretty similar too what I would probably buy right now if I needed a new workstation

    Only thing I'd be concerned with is if 850W for the PSU will be enough. A bit of double checking to make sure can't hurt

    I have a 850W myself with a 8086k and 1070ti, no problem at all.
    I do not expect any issues with those specs either.

    850 is pretty big.
