Can anyone offer any insight on this?  I've spent some time reading through other forums but find that much of the information is not exactly what I am looking for or is somewhat outdated.  Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!

the most beneficial thing for revit 2010 is having 64bit and as much memory as you can get your hands on.  A solid graphics card with 3d acceleration goes a long way as well.

I recently constructed my own workstation. I have a Core i7 975 XE overclocked alittle around 4.12ghz with a Asus P6t7 motherboard and 24gb ram. I am still waiting for my two ASUS MARS to be shipped to me as well. I already have a quardo fx4600 sitting in there for my Revit production.

 I just finished a 400,000sq ft mall with over 200 stores. I have a walkthrough of over 1000 cam points. I'll let you know of the rendering speed when Im done. Well ahve pictures when the cards arrive!!! yaaaa

Quad core ....yes.... even at 32bit the quad makes a difference... If your company is going to invest in quad core processors they might as well go 64 Bit too... Be sure they do get the RAM to maximize the 64Bit + Quad Technology.. Good video card is a given. 

Rendering models may not fall to the model builders but to another group... I have started getting jobs for material application and rendering only. The model design goes straight to print or to builders.

I'm new to Revit (MEP 2010 mostly, some 2009) and would welcome some input on how best to spend a couple hundred bucks to shore up my system.

I'm currently running Windows 7 (x64) on:  Intel Core2 CPU 6300 @ 1.86GHz, 4GB RAM, NVIDIA Quadro NVS 285, with two monitors. I'll mostly be using 3D views for placement and interference analysis, and then generating 2D views and sheets (no fancy rendering needs); I'll usually be designing over one or more linked models.

Not sure how good of an indication it is for Revit, but my 'Windows Experience Index' is:  CPU 4.9 / RAM 5.3 / Graphics 3.3 / 3D 3.3 / HDD 5.8

Based on that, I've been thinking that for starters I should replace the video card with something like an NVIDIA 9800 GT.  Seem like a good plan?  What should my next priority be?

Related questions:

  • Is it true that there's no benefit to enabling the OpenGL Hardware Acceleration option?
  • What’s the difference between gaming/consumer grade graphics cards and workstation/business class cards? (aside from the fact that the latter is three times more expensive!)

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

 Having a great processor and Ram would be the best idea.

@JoelBI would suggest the following levels:1. The cheapest way to get more power is to over-clock your processor. Your core2 will go much faster if your motherboard has over-clocking capabilities.2. If you spend a few dollars, get the fastest core2 your motherboard supports, then over-clock it, E8400 $1703. Upgrade motherboard, I7 processor, memory, $700

This thread is a bit dated, but there is some pretty good information about computer hardware for Revit posted at the link.  Good discussion and lot's of questions:
