Computer Processing Power for OpenRoads

I've started with a new company and I've started modeling more in OpenRoads with SS4 and Geopak. OpenRoads is new to me, but I do have experience with InRoads modeling. I've been watching another engineer working on his station recently and noticed how slow it is to process and how he has to separate the model to allow the computer to keep up. I have some other colleges at other firms that do modeling that have killed multiple computers modeling and have convinced their firm to get them a high end gaming computer.

I'm curious what everyone else is using and get an opinion on what is economical and efficient for working in modeling with OpenRoads.

The computer they just got me is an Intel Xeon 3.3GHz with 16 GB of RAM on Windows 10. This is similar to the other engineer using a Xeon 3.6 GHz with 16 GB of RAM on Windows 7 mentioned that separates everything.

Thank you in advance.
