Which www for workstation design?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
OCN is pretty much the pinnacle of online forums for most things computer, but there is a lack of specialization on workstation builds. Can anyone suggest where I can start looking for info on "What makes a good CS5.5 or Maya or Autocad 3d or Solidworks workstation?" or a "Rate my render farm" section. etc.

Anyone know? Hope this isn't an offensive question, mods feel free to delete if so.

You rig is a pretty good approximation on what an "ideal" single-CPU workstation should look like, even though the GPU might be a bit overkill
In the order of importance (my 2 cents):
*lots and lots of RAM
*fast storage, low access times (at least Velociraptor)
*as many cores as possible, not necessarily the fastest
*Nvidia graphic card w/ CUDA with as much video RAM as possible, Quadro cards (or Quadro-modded) are preferable
*many / big monitors
*the rest...
