To anyone who has experienced Revit Building 9, I have just visited the Autodesk web site to check on the newest release & found the list of system requirements which include: -Intel® Pentium® 4 processor, 2.8 GHz, or equivalent AMD Athlon® processor -2 GB RAM -1 GB free disk space -1280x1024 monitor and display adapter capable of 24-bit color. This seems pretty excessive, is anybody using the latest release at the moment with less power than recommended? If so, how does it run?

We're trying to run Revit 9 on Pentium 4, 1.2 ghz, 1.0 gb ram and seems very slow when working with larger files.

Any suggestions?

The cpu they have listend may be a bit larger than needed for smaller projects.  I had it on my laptop with a 1.6 GHz and it wasnt way fast but it did work.  The ram is definaly not and understatement, truthefully the limit to 2 GB is the fact that XP only supports 4 GB Crying3.5 truely).  Vista can hold up to 60GB, but the more ram you can have for this program the better.  We are running 9.1 with 3 gigs for a 72,000 sf project and it seems ok.  If you really want a cpu you could actually go with a processor that is less than 2.8GHz if you were to get a dual core, or even less if you felt like shelling out the $900 for Intel's Quad Core.  1GB of free space isnt really excessive, but today getting an affordable 500GB hard drive is fairly easy.   As for pdfindlan, i would recomend getting a new computer.  That sounds like a laptop that you have, and really 1.2GHz is a bit slow, and 1gb of ram will do fine if you are limited to houseing projcets and non comercial projects.  If you really want to try to keep running it with the system you have right now, try looking through all of the programs running and see if you can shut some of them down.  When working offline you could shut off things like an antivirus, firewall, messenger program, and others like that.  I would also recomend getting a video card with a dual DVI output.  Dual monitors is a really nice feture to have with Revit.
