Currently have a 5-year old Dell Optiplex 920 with the following specs
Intel® Core™ i7-4770
16GB (4x4GB) 1600MHz DDR3 RAM
GeForce GTX 1050 Ti
Samsung 850 EVO 512 GB SSD Boot Drive
1TB 7200 rpm Storage Drive
It's my turn to get a new machine this year and I'm not sure If I need to build a higher-end gaming desktop, or get an actual workstation. I maintain our City's water, sewer, drainage, and zoning maps. Right now the machine is quite slow using ArcGIS Desktop 10.6. When working in ArcMap, I get lots of freezing up and "Not Responding" messages. I to have several different years on aerial images in my map, as well as layers for water, sewer, drainage,m zoning etc. The aerial images are not stored on a local machine, they are accessed through the NC OneMap server. I'm not 100% sure if the slow downs are caused by our network, or my hardware.
What would you recommend as specs for a new machine? I may be forced to go with a Dell machine by our "IT" department, but I may be able to talk my way out of it if there is something better.
