But in terms of a system this what i came up with as a proposal where the total budget is to be $3000 (think the total is coming out to about $3100 after tax [10%])
Mobo: P8Z68-V or the P8Z68 DELUXE
(~$99 -150 mirocenter
Ram: Corsair 8gb (2x4gb) vigilance (~$50)
HDD: samsung f3 1tb (x2 raid 1) + M4 64gb SSD (~$225 for all 3)
GPU: tri-sli msi GTX 570 Twin Frozr III
($1000) 3x gtx 480's ($750)?
PSU: Antec TPQ-1200 ($150)
Cooling: Corsair H80 ($95)
Sound: asus xonar DX ($50)
Case: HAF X, 800D, or RV03 (allotted $2-300)
Monitor: Acer GD235HZbid (x2 dual screen set up) ($750)
The client said yesterday that he wanted to do rendering and such mostly on the cpu and a bit lighter on the video card. but wanted to get as much "gaming processing power" as possible (with nvidia) for the money.
Thoughts on this set up would be greatly appreciated, If i should switch out any parts it would be good to hear
what is "corsair vigilence"???
Its actually corsair vengeance.
The two mobo you listed don't support tri sli.
So get a hd6990+hd6970 & do tri-fire or buy 2x gtx580(the mobo can support only 2 cards)
If you want to do tri sli you have to buy atleast an ASUS P8P67 WS REVOLUTION,then only you can run 3x gtx570
Hope this helps.
Edit: I wont ever recommend the i7 2600,its not overclockable,
either get i7 2600k or i5 2600k.Edited by Aniket - 10/24/11 at 5:25pm
