This is our only published system requirements:
OS: Windows XP, Vista or 7 (32 and 64bit supported) (Home Editions are not supported)
CPU: Intel Pentium 4 or higher (current AMD processors also supported)
RAM: Minimum: 2GB Recommend: 4GB or 8GB for very large assembly work.
Video: OpenGL hardware-accelerated graphics card (for best results see HOOPS Compatibility http://developer.techsoft3d.com/hoops/hoop...raphics-cards/)
Disk space: 1GB
Beyond that we really don't have any hard data as a guide. For your work I would recommend at least 8GB RAM, a mid to high-end Nvidia Quadro graphics card and as fast of an Intel i7 CPU as your budget will allow.
