I,m learning how to work on CFD for my phd studies. Im not doing anything "extreme" since my research is mostly experimental. I would just like to use some CFD to validate my work.
Do you think this computer is good enough? (US$ 2200)
Processor: I7-3930k (6x 3.20 ghz)
Cooling system:corsair hydro series H60 liquid cooling system (ARC dual silent high performance fan)
Memory: 32 gb (8 gb x 4) DDR3 1600 mhz
Video card: Nvidia GeForce 760 GTX 2gb
Motherboard: ASUS P9X79 LE. 2 x USB 3.0
Power supply: 860 watt corsair ax860
Im using ansys fluent and star ccm+
Thx in advance.

Well, we have no idea at all about the magnitude of the problem that you need to solve, therefore we can't really comment without any certainty. However, that is a nice system, and you can do a lot of "meaningful" work with it.
