Good PC for ArcGIS Pro

Steveyg

VALUED CONTRIBUTOR
Hello all!

I need a new PC largely to use ArcGIS Pro (a GIS software). My current PC is 8 years old and has ran its course. ArcGIS Pro is very slow on it. Could anyone recommend a decent PC (probably custom built tbh unless you think building on would be better)? Here are the specs of Pro: https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/get-started/arcgis-pro-system-requirements.htm

Thanks for your help!
Hi Mate, I'm a little familiar with ArcGIS Pro. Can you let me know what kind of budget we have to work with and I can for sure help recommend a build

Hi there,

My budget I would say no more than £1,000. I'd definitely like something a bit high end (even maybe suitbale for some gaming although this isn't a must)

Thank you for your help.

£1000 doesn't really go far in todays market mate hardware prices are at an all time high, this will really restrict our options here it certainly won't be gaming capable due to the comprises I'm going to have to make to get it suitable for ArcGIS

I'll see what I can come up with here

No problem, understand that, as long as it is decent for ArcGIS Pro then that's fine

On your budget I'd go with this mate, I know ideally you'd want as many cores as possible for ArcGIS but this is a solid option in my opinion. I've also managed to get to 32GB of RAM which will greatly help

I've had to make big compromises on the storage and would have liked to have went for a X570 motherboard but the B550 will be capable.

I've allowed for larger PSU though so you can add a GPU in future which would turn this into a very good gaming machine

Any questions fire away

Thank you for this, I will have a look and see

Also I don't need a GPU at all even to run GIS software?? I already have a GTX 970 in my current PC.
Yeah a GPU definitely helps, the 5700G comes with a Vega integrated card which isn't ideal but it should work in the mean time

Nothing stopping you from putting that 970 into there though it would really really help!

In fact I might have another go at the spec here knowing you have a GPU may let me balance it differently for another CPU

Okay thanks
Changing the CPU seems to add at least another £200 to the build though, I know your budget is £1000 and I don't want to blow it out too much. I don't want to sacrifice longevity of the build for more power know if you know what I mean. I'd rather set you up with something like will last 5-7 years or more than have something that will be good for 3
