Hey everybody,

here's more details about pc i am going to buy
- Windows 8.
- AMD A8-3870k processor - 3.0GHz
- 2 graphics cards, integrated AMD Radeon HD6550D and extra AMD HD6530D (or better?)
- 8 GB RAM and 1 TB hard disk

I'm using many architecture softwares such as Archicad, 3DSMAX, Artlantis ...
so my question is : is this configuration sufficient enough so i could work comfortable and smooth.

Thanks in advance

The components seem good for ArchiCAD 16.
You can also check it yourself against the official hardware requirements:

If you are using many other program like you said, I would seriously consider buying at least 16 GB of RAM (this is based on my own experience - I also like to use many programs at the same time without having to close them). It is probably the most important component in your system as if your CPU is a bit slower, so what, but if you run out of memory, your whole system slows down dramatically.
