For most SolidWorks users, the best CPU is one with an as high core frequency as possible. This is the “GHz” that you see in the specs. Generally, the higher the CPU frequency, the less cores it will have.
Unless you’re also doing heavy rendering or Simulation/FEA, multiple cores won’t provide much of a performance advantage. Not all user workflows are the same though, so be sure and contact us for an optimized configuration.
The amount of memory you will need depends on how many programs you will have open at any given time alongside SolidWorks, how large the files are that you will be working with, as well as how many parts your assemblies contain.
A good starting point in deciding how much RAM you should go for would be to check your current usage via Windows Task Manager.
SolidWorks is one of the programs where using a "workstation grade" GPU like the Nvidia Quadro card is beneficial.
Even low-end Quadro cards outperform high-end GeForce GPUs, and certain features will not work without Quadro.
In the past, computers were held back by slow mechanical hard drives.
Unless you are storing files which are not accessed too often, in which case mechanical hard drives might be a better choice, Solid State drives should be used for everything else.
Having everything stored on SSDs means you’ll be able to copy, move, open and save files quickly and PC and program start times will be reduced.
