Solidworks 2014 Performance Problem


New member
Hi Everyone,

My computer is Dell Workstation T1500 and it has,

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1
Intel Core i7 860 @ 2.80GHz
8,00GB DDR3 @ 656MHz (9-9-9-24)
Dell Inc. 0XC7MM (CPU 1)
512 MBNVIDIA Quadro FX 580 (NVIDIA)
298GB Seagate ST3320418AS ATA Device (SATA)

I'm using SolidWorks 2014 and my problem is when i open assemblies,my pc strains.When I double-click assembly files I wait too much (15-20 seconds) and when its open it cant be turned easily and i cant add other parts easily.I'm waiting always.

Waiting 15-20 seconds opening is not too bad problem but adding parts and turning assembly files fastly is important for me.I want to add parts,change parts or turn assembly fastly.

How can i overcome this problem? Should I change my harddisk to SSD ? or Should I add RAM ? or Should i change graphic card ?

What should I do ?

Thx Everyone
