Solidworks takes advantage a fast CPU, so we recommend a fast, multi-core i7 for the bulk of your work. We have found Xeons to not be very useful for Solidworks, as the extra features gained from Xeon technology are not used in this software. What’s more, Xeons are typically slower than the latest i7 chips, so going for an i7 will boast more performance at a lower overall cost.
We only recommend Quadro cards for Solidworks, as we’ve found that in “shading with edges” mode, lower end quadros actually out-perform even the highest end GeForce GPUs. In addition, using a workstation card is the only way to get official support for features like Realview and Ambient Occlusion.
