Hello all can you please give me some help with this setup,
I am looking at building a new system to be used as a 3d Modelling platform using 3dsmax, Zbrush, Vray, Photoshop, Nuke, After Effects, Motion Tracking software. Therefore need something really beefy and fast. Also dont want it to be to noisey. Also probably going to try and get a stable overclock of about 3.5ghz. The 12gb ram is for using 3d applications and possibly virtual pcs as well.
Here is the list of parts i am interested in:
CPU: I7 920 - $469
CPU FAN: Artic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2 - $45.20
CASE: COOLERMASTER DOMINATOR CM690 - $113 -
MOTHERBOARD: ASUS P6T Standard - $395
RAM: 12GB - CORSAIR XMS3 Twin3X DDR3 PC12800/1600Mhz 12GB - $258 + $258 = $516
or Patriot Viper ddr3 6gb 1600 ($200 to $260 each set) - The patriots have good review, but arent listed on pricespy.
POWER SUPPLY: PC Power & cooling silencer S75CF 750W - $175 (price went up to $199 today)
DVD DRIVE: Samsung SH-S223F - $44.72
MONITOR: Samsung P2350 24 Inch- $341
GPU - Galaxy Geforce gtx 260+ 216SP Overclocked Dual-DVI 896mb
Operating system: Windows 7 Professional - $217
Current total is: $2,622.00
I allready have:
Hdd's - 650gb, 500gb, 250gb and also have a 160gb Raptor 10K Rpm drive which i am thinking of using as the boot drive (faster but also a bit noisey)
2 x 19inch monitors (will keep one and turn sideways to join up with the 24inch Samsung), will sell the second one with my existing computer
Keyboard, mouse, may need some new speakers but not to important at the moment.
Hopefully this is enough information, thanks in advance for your help.
