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!
You both deserve MASSIVE facepalms. Seriously. Think before you post something.

SR-2? 1366? is that the same as 1155?

SSD rendering? you use the SSD to make programs go faster, not render to the ssd, so with a budget of over 5 grand, why not grab an ssd?

GPU? never heard of cuda processing? well, you sir, have been missing out.

IPS? yes. IPS. go for it!

ATI Fanboy i guess. but most of the really hard work in Maya is done by the CPU, so GPU does not really make much of a difference. And a workstation card is better suited to CAD programs than Graphic Design

More like ignorant people. They're probably thinking about the eyefinity aspect of the card rather than thinking of CUDA, etc.

-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.
This. CUDA.

I'd have to agree here with the CUDA and OpenGL aspects of things. One of these would be sweet...if it were 2K cheaper. Combine that with a 990x and 12-24GB RAM and you're set. I would go a few tiers down the Nvidia professional ladder and get a Quadro from last gen or so.

why not build 2 pc's for that money? i built one at work with a
i7 2600 + gigabyte ud3
8gig ram 1tb f3's x2
gtx 580
600w silverstone psu. guy was cheerin! id just go that route tbh. then you would be able to have more items rendering and more time for the ppl there to use them
EDIT: i made specifically for cad and rendering in cad programs

Correct me if I'm wrong, but with this sort of budget and the purpose of the build, I believe the programs that will be used make better use of physical cores, than hyper-threaded ones.

An EVGA SR-2 + 2 lower priced Xeon's + a few GTX580's and 24GB of RAM would go a long way in graphic design. Lian-Li's P80 case fits an SR-2 and could be made to look pretty professional, if you were to replace the fans with non-LED ones.

Come on, really? Did you--are you serious? Fail example.

Why are people recommending gaming-grade GPUs? 580 SLI? 590? 6990? Seriously?

Not all high-end computers were meant to have gaming GPUs. In fact, most builds over 2k aren't. This build is specifically for video editing, in which case a workstation card (one of the Quadros I would assume) is the most beneficial.

In addition, after a certain point of money you spend, you're not going to see any increase in rendering performance. I would reserve 3k for the computer itself and 2.5k for everything else--high accuracy monitors, software, etc etc...
