That sounds like a good system dwood.
I have a dual quad core xeon with an fx 5600. I originally loaded it with xp 32 bit OS, because I was waiting for drivers to catch up. They did, and I loaded W7 64 bit. I run the latest nvidia beta drivers.
Bobcad wont utilize the entire computer, but it does allow me to process stuff that would never happen on a normal box. Just upgraded my slower 4X 1gb ram chips to 2X 4 gb faster chips. Should arrive in the next few days. Will slowly build that up to at least 24 gb for some of my other 64 bit apps…
I would load W7, unless you have some specific “XP App”. Mem management is just that much better. (Possibly even consider dumping the XP required app and moving on.
Cutting the Island in Koa would be insane. Also for the time being, if you just cant compute the toolpath, send me a file with the feature and specs you would use, and I calculate the toolpath and send it back to you to post out. But that new box sounds like it would do it too. Let me know if it is usable for you.
[EDIT] “”"”"”"”"”"but has windows XP Pro 64bit on it
or do i need windows 7″”"”"”"”"”
If the box you find has xp 64 bit, you could still purchase it and load W7 on it later… Be sure to spend for “W7 Ultimate” and not one of the lessor flavors! [EDIT]
