Thread: New System Recommendations

    New System Recommendations

    Working on my models lately has shown me that while my laptop is fine for gaming it is now wholly inadequate for using Autocad. My guess is Autodesk and Nvidea finally worked something out to make ACAD all but useless on commercial graphics cards. So that means I need to build a dedicated AutoCAD/3D printing workstation. Obviously looking at a Quadro video card (big money there). Any recommendations? Also looking at the refurbed HP work stations, anyone have any experience there and can tell me which old Quadro's to avoid? Seeing a K4200 equipped workstation with 16GB of RAM and a 2TB HDD for $1400 that entices me.

    AutoCAD accepts only specifically certified GPU/Driver combos. If what you have doesn't match, it forcibly turns off many graphics acceleration stuff and gives you **** poor performance. You can have an accepted GPU, but a too new driver version, same result. Check their hardware compatibility list before you buy!
