How CDB Helps You Be More Successful
Engineers and architects need powerful workstations that are optimized for design / modeling and simulation / rendering tasks. Computer Direct Business will custom-build the perfect workstation optimized for you with amazing graphics, super-fast processing and rock-solid stability. We build your Engineering & Architectural Professional Workstation with only the highest quality parts. We then run the professional workstations through rigorous stress tests with quality control standards that are second to none.
Programs like Revit, Navisworks, Solidworks and AutoCad primarily rely on processor speed for design and modeling tasks. Since most Cad applications are single-treaded, they won’t use the full resources of multi-processor workstations unless you are doing lots of simulation or rendering. Our max frequency and safely overclocked workstations eliminate the CPU bottleneck allowing you to create models and designs at peak performance.
Most engineering and architectural programs rely on maximizing CPU cores and memory for frequent simulation and rendering. For these highly multi-threaded tasks, CDB offers single and dual Intel Xeon Professional Workstations. We also have a wide assortment of amazing video cards which we matchup with Xeon workstations so your visualizations and simulations respond in real time.
Finally, properly configuring the OS and data drives and using SSDs to increase data reading/writing speeds and drastically decrease seek times, when the budget allows, is very important. If you don’t back up finished products to a server or cloud, you may need additional drives for data storage. We will help you balance all these factors – fine-tuning the configuration for your perfect workstation.
SERVICE AFTER THE SALE
Because of our rigorous design, engineering and building process you may never need our warranty. But if you do, Computer Direct Business makes sure your Engineering or Architectural Workstation is protected against defects in materials and workmanship with a one year parts warranty along with our industry leading Lifetime Labor and Tech Support coverage. When you or your workstation needs service or support, CDB technicians will professionally help you via phone or email (whichever you prefer) and service your professional workstation at our facility in Greenville, SC.

The technicians at Computer Direct Business were very helpful in assisting me with putting together a specification for a new workstation to handle the demanding processing load of Autodesk Revit. I am very pleased with the performance and stability of the system they built. They will be the ones I turn to for my future computing needs.Nick Cantu, CPD
Adeptus Architecture has relied on Computer Direct Business for all our computer hardware needs over the past ten years. As we have grown from a regional to a national architectural firm, our technological needs have drastically changed. Mr. Underwood and his staff have assisted us with all our evolving needs, initially setting up a server system and architectural Workstations for our staff. After a few years, we needed to become more mobile, so CDB created custom laptops for our travel. Still later, as we began to service state and governmental clientele, we needed to upgrade from 32 bit to 64 bit Workstations to run the advanced software programs required by these clients. Again, CDB worked with us to create Professional Workstations that were custom tailored to our needs.
We have been extremely satisfied with the services and products we have received over the years from CDB and do not hesitate to recommend them to evolving, progressive businesses that have growing technological needs.
I would like to commend Gary and his team at Computer Direct Business for going above and beyond in the selection and installation of our complete corporate server as well as a flawless implementation for 3S International Corporation.
As well, Gary and his team designed and built us an exceptional high performance Engineering PC that is for 3S International’s 3D Modeling and programming.
