Hello Foamers,

I am writing this today as I need a little help in deciding what computer to buy.
I am relatively new to OF and I would like to use it for the following applications:
- importing cad drawings and subsequent meshing of offshore platforms
- Ventilation studies
- Gas dispersion
- Fire modelling

From experience it seems that the number of cells required lies between 2 and 5 millions.

I am not a computer expert by any stretch of the imagination so would like your feedback based on two possible options. Let it be told that I cannot build a machine by myself and my budget is around the 2,000.00 mark.

Option 1)

Option 2)

I would greatly appreciate your feedback on these options and any tweaks required to make the most of my simulations.

Thank you for your time
