The only problem is the limited selections of graphics card they offer. They will not customize their machines with anything other than what they list.
. What is a solid PC that you would get the most bang for your buck and that is capable of working within a mac network with an OS X Server. Any suggestions??!!

I have a AMD 1.3 thunderbird and 512k sdram- how do determine what processor would be adequate to run ArchiCAD ?
I am on a tight budget btw and could not buy a new 64 bit processor

As far as a name-brand computer recommendation goes, Dell comes to mind first. The model you choose depends upon the hardware requirements of the Deltek software and your budget. The Compaq Prosignia series is also quite good.
I work in a mac office. This software is called Deltek. What would you recommend?

Can anyone help with the reason why one type of PC processor is better and why all the comments about not getting a Celeron processor?
What is ArchiCAD doing that is needs the Pentium processor and such?

Coming into a new office. Got put on the largest project in the office as far as the CAD work goes. Then I found out that my machine has a 1.1g Celeron processor and 384 megs of ram.
