I'm using 2017 Platinum and I'm in the process of buying a new computer. I would appreciate opinions on the video card, so far the one selected is Nvidia GeForce GT 710.

Thanks Don.

There's so much to learn and not much time left to learn it.

Would you please download Majo's benchmark (first message in this thread: http://forums.turbocad.com/index.php/topic,8615.msg94205.html) and post your results there?  I would really like to know how the Quadro works with TurboCAD and RedSDK compared to the Gamer cards that most of us use.

If you have not purchased the Dell....DON'T. They refuse to use industry standard architecture. You will be forced to buy their (inflated priced) power supply if your goes Kaput.

Hi Don,

I want to buy new pc also and consider over refurbished workstation something like -> https://www.creoserver.com/refurbished-hp-workstations

IMO, if you had to choose from a great GPU, or great CPU, put your money in the CPU. As seen in the post Jeff referenced, CPU core count seems to be more important than GPU, as most of TCAD's functions are mainly CPU dependent, even when rendering.
You do benefit from a good GPU, but the gains realized aren't as great as with CPU improvements.
