what kind of problem you are to deal with? in steady and stable problems CFX is more suitable choice. otherwise you can use fluent. star-cd is a very powerful software, but still lacks a good Coupled solver. Also it is not as user friendly as fluent is! good luck

What you say about Star-cd is correct, but Star-ccm+ has a coupled solver and is definitely easier to use than fluent (although I haven't used CFX).

yeah sure STAR-CCM+ is something! Generally, all of these tools can be used; but what finally becomes the key to suggest is which of which you have mastered well. the kind of problem is somehow complex and needs enough experience using either software.
