The hallucinatory specification ....


Please fill in questionnaire.

Indicate what exactly you are doing - modeling, rendering, etc., etc.

Which V-RAY exactly, CPU-based only or CPU and video card,

And the more you detail, the more it will help you.

In what sense is it hallucinatory? 


In terms of stacking the components and their quality.

What about the other answers to the questions I asked?

There is a situation where the budget is low.

1. What is the maximum budget? Is there an exception if necessary?

NIS 5000, option to exceed NIS 1500 

2. What useful computer (games, graphic editing, office work, HD content, for example), is there a specific example of a game or software?

Main use - working with AutoCAD, Revit and SketchUp software. From time to time also Viri and Lumion, and Adobe software (Photoshop, InDesign, etc.) 

3. Is there a need for peripherals in addition to the computer (for example: keyboard, mouse, And screen)?


4. Is there a basic component that does not need to be included in the specification? (Eg Drive Which already exists and can be added to the assembly)


5. How important is silent computer operation? 

It is important

6. Is there a limit or preference for the physical size and weight of the computer, lights, etc.?

Preferably a small box. If micro then not necessary. Lights do not matter at all. 

7. Is there a need to include an OS / Office (preferably a preferred version) and / or a computer in the store?

Yes, 10

8. Is there a preference to purchase the computer from a specific store? If you can not specify a residential area.

9. When is the purchase of the computer planned (it is highly recommended to request a short specification from the time of purchase)?

Next week

10. Are there any special requests regarding ports and connections (eg Type-C or FireWire) or overclocking?

Mostly Let there be some outings

11. Is there any peripherals that will be connected? If so, which one? (Docking station if computers \ One screen or another)

Well, as for Lumion - you can forget, unless it's really basic and that's in doubt.

As for Wei Ray - well, he will do his best with what he has.


I too will do my best.  :)

If he had done the job, I would not have bothered 

Bring another specification, no?


And what does it "do the job"?

In double time?

Half budget?

both ?

How long will the system last?
