3/4 into new build for 3D, looking for thumbs up/down

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I had an old 920 rig with 12 gigs of gskill cas 9 ram. But the motherboard and psu just had a mishap.

I'd like to wait for haswell. but I need the performance now otherwise I wont be able to make the cash for later :-/ I still feel this is not ideally the rig id want since back when I made my old rig ( FADE) I was expecting 8 cores to be in the arena on intels side ( not xeon). I have not researched extensively this rig as much as id like to since I have to compensate for downtime. ( I spent almost a month looking at parts/case/psu etc and I love/hated every minute of it.

3d workstation ( sort of no budget ) things can be swapped

3930k $569
ASUS P9X79 PRO $304.99
Thermaltake water 2.0 $139
Samsung 830 x2 220$
16gb samsung "wonder" ram 34.99 ( debating 32gb)
(234 with rebate) seasonic 1250 $249 - (219 with rebate) / *XFX ProSeries P1-1250-BEFX 1250W $254
$1549 upfront for new kit w/o asterisks

debating about case and card as well but unsure atm

This machine will be used for rendering short animation sequences at 720p for a showreel, and probably the usual 3d/ video editing stuff.
As much as I'd like to wait for haswell I can't. But if this thing can slip into haswell in terms as "upgradeable" that'd be grand.

If there are any other 3d guys out there id like to hear their input of course smile.gif

i wouldn't bother with 3d, it's ****e. Hold out for 4k2k, same resolution as your eye and with IGZO a steady 75hz with a displayport.

6 cores is a waste for gaming, 4 hardly ever get used and it's more about the gpu anyway.

Not ending up for gaming more of a workstation/ Render node. For 3d viewport stuff, yeah the gpu can be significant more important. But if you add in doing Premiere or nuke, and 3dsmax etc, the playground changes a bit.

I do not know of this 4k2k??biggrin.gif Did I put this in the wrong thread?
