Complete Novice want to adapt my Cad Station
ok guys be gentle

i have a desktop cad station at home and would like to run floworks along with solidworks...

i7 950 bloomfield
24gb ddr3 1600 ram
x2 1tb hard drives
quadro fx 4500 512mb ram
also a gaming card with 1gb ram and physicx thing on it.

what do i need to do with this to make it a useful tool, if at all..

had cuda mentioned to me??

The only thing that might help is bumping your processor up to the i7 970 which has 6 cores instead of 4 (assuming the Floworks solver is parallel, I am not familiar with it). You already maxed out the RAM, which is the other important factor. The video cards don't matter yet.

As I know SW and SW FloWorks don't use CUDA GPUs.
