Need for advices for building a system for work

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all!
I have a friend who needs a new system for 3D modeling, rendering and graphics.
What I need to know is which components suit best for the job, so i'm asking to you.
The limit are the money, I mean, he can spend between 1500€ and 2000€ (max).

Thank you

the nvidia quadro 4000 is a good 3d modeling card and it is built for professional workstations. MSI has a good 1366 motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130500
the intel i7-970 would be a good choice with 6 physical and 12 logical cores.
12gb Crucial ddr3 1333mhz
samsung makes decent 64gb SSDs
I found all these at new egg for $1660 or 1208 euros

I believe the most important question would be what apps will he be using, and if those apps rely on CUDA and/or AMD rendering? If they do, you will want to build a GPU heavy system. If they dont, a dual logical cpu system would be a better bet

That system is very interesting, I'll let him know

he mostly uses photoshop, 3ds max and illustrator.. occasionally he uses rhinoceros, alias, premiere pro and maya.
I don't know, honestly, which programs run with CUDA or AMD rendering or what else, so I'm relying on you..
