Hiya,

a buddy of mine is looking to purchase a whole workstation off of ebay in Ireland. He's going to be attending a course to learn Solidworks and has no clue on what he should buy. He's on a tight budget and is looking for something cheap that would still perform reasonably well (using an old laptop right now that is probably not fit for such computation). I'm also not well versed in GPUs for such software. He's not yet sure what version will be used in the course, and the version he'll be working on at home. I've been looking at ~350-400 EUR refurbished workstations and they mostly seem fine CPU and RAM wise, but the GPU is still a big mystery to me. There are workstations with 4-6 year old cards and do they still perform OK in new versions of the software? e.g. is Quadro K2200 is still okay? Is anyone able to advise please? Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers
