I am in a small firm (5) and we are currently upgrading from ACAD 2000 to ACAD 2006 (BIG Jump)
We are also going to purchase two new machines, what would be the optimum computer system to run Architectural Desktop 2006?
Some qualification and questions:
-Cost is an issue
-Must use two monitor set up
-Are LCD monitors a good idea for CAD yet?
-What processor should we use? Fast single processor? Multicore? Dual processor? Xeon or Pentium?
-The system will need to run other applications than AutoCAD
-Is there a computer manufacturer that optimizes for AutoCAD that would get me computer for my dollar than someone like Dell?
-Should the system have two individual graphics cards or one card with dual monitor capability?
-It seems like the priority for speed in AutoCAD would be first memory and then processor speed is that correct?
