Thread Starter 
Name is Jacque'

Been coming to the forums, trying to get a better understanding on how to make my own personal rig for gaming, 3d, Motion Gfx, and heavy rendering. I'm amazed at how much information OC's forums has, very excited every time I learn something new from you guys. I cant afford Boxx tech. pc's that my work provides, but I don't need extreme power, so I wanted to get my hands dirty and make something that personally fits me. Recently, I obtained a Quadro 5k card from Nvidia, and sold it, to make way for purchasing parts for a new rig. (I all ready purchased a gtx580 3gb version month ago)

Good majority of stuff I do is rendering 3k -8k pixel images and high poly sculpting using Pixologic Zbrush. Constantly deal with rendering high poly scenes using applications like Autodesk 3dsmax, Vray rendering engine and Metal Ray. Recently I've been doing some Real Time rendering with Vray Engine for work flow purposes. If anyone is interested on seeing some examples of the stuff I've been doing so far, check out my portfolio.

So I'm just trying to get a better idea at what would be useful, and I figured what better place to figure that all out. If anyone I has any good insight, happy to take some advice and direction.

Welcome to OCN. Don't hesitate to ask any questions regarding anything that has to do with Computers.

Also, you are one talented, and clearly experienced artist. I'm in awe. Whatever architect firm / VFX-studio able to hire you are very lucky.

Lastly, if you seek ways to improve rendering speeds, see if you can get your hands on an i7 CPU. Hyper-threading helps a lot.
