Dear Revit City

I have recently started learning revit due to school related projects, My question is because revit is such a large program what type of operating system is best suited to run revit smoothly without lag. I currently use the "HP pavillion dv7 notebook PC". kind regards BR4NKO

BR- no computer is better than another for running revit

as long as it's a windows 7 computer.. the more speed

the more money.. the new intel sandy bridge setup is

the only way to go right now IMO.. but get some speed-

it's so nice to have things move without waiting..

You'll want windows 7, 64 bit. 

 

Rendering an image requires processing power almost exclusively, so if you're after photrealistic images and walkthroughs, get 4 to 8 cores. 

 

For smooth work, without catches and lag while you spin around a 3D model with shading, and shadows on, you'll need a very good video card. 

 

Ram is not as important as some people think.  But I wouldn't have under 4.  but it's cheap.
