Computer Specs

Really nice CPU, lots of memory, big fast hardrive  all that stuff looks great.


If you were building a new computer today from scratch you would probably be looking for

an SSD drive for your Operating system and for Softplan and would use the 1T 7200 HHD

for Data Storage.


The weak point in this system appears to be the GT 640 Video Card.  I'm not really up on the

video cards but typically the power systems use the GTX card instead of the GT cards and if

I am correct the GT 640 may be a couple of generations back.  I am using a GTX 660Ti card

and it is a generation or two back itself.    The Video card may do fine but it's just not leading

edge stuff.


Hope this helps !
