I don't know if that card will be necessary but it's a bit cheaper here:

Overkill! Why do you even need a high end video card? A very low-end card will do you just fine...

I have not used Maya, but i am familiar with some of Autodesk's other programs such as 3D Studio Max Design and Revit Architecture 2011, when it comes to rendering images its all done by the CPU cores.

I have been using 3DS Max for about 2 years now and just recently bought my Sig Rig. Only ever used the computers at my College (Dual Cores). I went from rendering images in ~18-24Hrs to less than 2Hrs now with my 6 cores at 4GHz. so best to go with an i7 970/980 or 2600k for '12' cores. I think the 990 is overpriced.

An SR-2 board with 2600k's would be insanely quick!

An SSD is not needed for this kind of work but will make boot/load times much much quicker. Wont see much diff in rendering

the GPU is only used for the viewports on the screen, which can still be very taxing. a Single 6990 should be plenty.

8-12GB of RAM will be plenty as well.

IPS monitors FTW! pricey but well worth it!

Here is what i came up as it has a decent workstation card and raid card for storage that you can use raid 5 or 6 in case a HD drops out with 6 TB of hds with a 128gb SSD for OS and programs, but without a case monitor or peripherals. Grand total $4549.32 without a case to house all the stuff here pic provided with setup.

Also does windows 7 Pro able to use 2 different cpus as i dont remember.

For video editing and rendering, nothing beats Nvidia's CUDA. Maybe even look into a QuadroFX.

If not, dual GTX 590s or Quad GTX 580s.

-i7 2600K OCed to at or near 5GHz.
-SSD(s) for quickness.
-High-end P67 mobo for OCing and 4-Way SLI.
-Fastest Dual-Channel RAM that you can find.
-PC + GPU + Mobo Water Cooling for lower temperatures, better stability, and longer PC life.
-High-end PSUs (dual AX1200s)

For those mentioning AMD/ATI. Nuh-uh. AMD/ATI doesn't hold a candle to Nvidia in these sorts of rigs. Stick to Intel/Nvidia for BIG BOY PERFORMANCE.

If it's a graphic design and video club, 3d renderings probably wont be very extensive at that level so a workstation video card wouldn't be used as much as the "gaming" cards would be so to speak. OP, If I'm speaking down to you, let me know, I'm ignorant here about everything you guys would do with this

Why a 6990? I'd think an Nvidia solution would be better as all of Adobe's applications support CUDA but not Stream

Monitor: Not sure how many you'd want... you can go crazy here =)

Total without the monitors: $4880

Anyways, I just went crazy here... I'm not even sure if you need this kind of power though.
Most programs don't even need the full power of a single 6990 card.
Went with H70 to save space for those 4 gpu + ram.
Also, I'm not sure how much power you need for 4x 6990 as well.... I'm assuming that 1000W can handle it, but I've no idea.

Edit 1: I honestly have no idea how to build a proper 3D rendering workstation PC. I only do gaming builds so I probably am a little off here and there.

Edit 2: Replace those GPU's with a single workstation GPU that's worth the similar budget. Something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-325-_-Product
Also, spend less on the ssd and go with sr-2 with dual cpu setup.
Grab 8 more GB of ram.. Heck, maybe just grab a sr-2 and have 24 GB. Photoshop loves memory.

Heres my crack at it. If the programs support 24 threads, then this should be the fastest one on this thread.
