Concur. I didn't realize the specs didn't include that. We got dual
widescreen 19s. In retrospect I wish I would have gone for the 20s. 


A UPS may also be a good idea to support any processes/tools/models that
are left running for extended periods. I've lost hours of work because
of hiccups in the power system.

Good information here; I also recommended dual monitors if at all
possible for ease of working with multiple windows.

Department of Corrections just started a GIS shop. We started with basic
computers; some one leaped before they looked. We upgraded shortly


Attached are the specs for what we are running. Haven't seen any
problems with this setup.


Good luck.

Good Morning,


I am looking for computer hardware recommendations (CPU, RAM, VIDEO
CARD, ETC.) for running ArcGIS. We have a system I would like to
upgrade, and would welcome any advice. I have been researching this
issue, but I figure this message board is the best place to get real
world info on hardware that performs with ArcGIS. Being a local
government, funding will be an issue, so I won't be able to buy cutting
edge hardware most likely.
