  • Optimum Amount of RAM

    Ok guys heres an easy one for you.
    What is, or in your opinion the "Optimum Amount of RAM" that you need
    for PCDMIS ver. 3.7 MR2 to operate effectively?

    Here is some info on the computer I am using.

    Pentium 4 with 2.8Ghz CPU

    I'm witholding the amount of RAM I am currently running to get better opinions.

    .02

    Get as much as you can, the speed at which the graphics operates will get better as you increase the RAM.

        this is straight from the readme.txt file for the latest version 4.0




        512MB of RAM or higher. More RAM may be required if working with large CAD models. You should have RAM equal to 8 times the size of the largest CAD file you will use. (For example, if you use an IGES model of 250 MB, then 2 GB RAM is recommended.)

          This is what my system is...

          2.0 G RAM

          We use some pretty big iges files though. Sometimes up to 80-100 meg.

            Most computers hold up to about 3-4GB of ram MAX. Get the most and the best that your motherboard will hold. Currently DDR memory is the standard on most newer computers. Your IT dept. should know the max type of memory on your motherboard (i.e. DDR400 = 400MHZ). Max it out!

            And keep a decent amount of virtual memory allocated. Set it to a static amount, i.e. minimum = 1024, maximum = 1024.
            I used to be high on life but I built up a tolerance.

              I was told 1GIG ram minimum by tech support, and that was for 3.7 MR3. I would suggest the minimum of 2 GIG for Version 4. But as previously stated, the more the merrier.

                Thanks for all your input.
                I have been running 512MB and thing started to slow down the more technical my programs became. I am going to boost it to 1 or 2 GB this week.
                Appreciate it ya'll.
