    Hello! This is my first post in Revitforum.

    Stay away from anything where a Intel HD Graphics is the primary video card.

    Revit will run on this system, but not smoothly.

      Hi Urvvvv - welcome to RFO!

      Generally agree with what MP said (though some users say using Intel GPU can be passable for light duty). Also the CPU is slow, there's no SSD, and the screen is mediocre.

      If this is just for occasional use at home and you don't need a lot of fancy graphics, then as MP alluded to, Revit can run on pretty much anything. If you're a professional (or even a student) Revit user, you should spend (at least) ~50% more money for a better computer.

      There's a whole bunch of hardware sticky posts that explain the hardware you should be considering for a fast Revit experience, if that's what you're looking for.

      Good luck!


        What kind of PC should I get?
