Thanks a lot!

Hi Soway,

Sorry, I can't read Chinese. Could you just list me some potential solutions in detail? Thanks a lot!
I want to use RedHat AS or SUSE OS and run very big layout design.

Ok,if you use redhat,use AS4 update 7 should be ok.
Memory should be bigger.Use nvidia's card should be ok,the popular vedio card will be satisfied.

Your email address?

The OS should be 64bit version.
The AMD64 quad-core CPU is a good choice, if you can afford it.

You need video cards that support opengl, such as Quadro from nvidia or FireGL from ATI/AMD. Of course the newer ones are faster but more power hungry.
