Recommended specs for running Paraview

Hello everyone! I am new to Paraview and I am going to use it for 3d data visualization and I am also in need to buy a new PC. Which specs do you suggest in order for Paraview to work at its best?

Thank you in advance,
Best regards,

ParaView scales very well, do it mostly depends on your data and processing you want, but:

Enough RAM to load and process your biggest data.
An ok GPU to be able to render fast enough.
As powerful a CPU has possible.
SSD disk is a must.


Thank you very much

Totally agree with Mathieu. One more think to consider is the size of your data. If your datasets are MBytes to GBytes in size, disk speed probably won’t matter much. If they are tens or (wow) hundreds of GBytes, you want a very fast, large disk (like an SSD).
