I'm running a i3 3,1 GHz Machine, 4 GB of RAM with an onboard Graphic Chip.
I build a small GIS with Mapbender3, Geoserver based on PostGIS data. It's running pretty fluid from what i can see. Now i want to insert high-resolution Satellite Images i have on my hard disk instead of Loading a WMS providing those images.
Do you think my hardware will go to its limits in that case ? I have very small GIS-Data, like 100 datasets.
I told my Computer merchant to make me an offer for a PC that can handle this System and he made an an offer with following components:
- GB GA-Z97P-D3 Mainboard
- intel Xeon E3 1231V3 3,4 Ghz
- 16 GB RAM
- Sapphire FirePro W5100 4096MB
To me it looks like, this beast would be heavily overpowered ? is such a Graphic card necessary to handle two dimensional data ?
