Building a new Pc

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for input for building a new rig in my custom case. What i'm after is a machine that can handle what ever i throw at it as far as graphic design.

Example: web developement & design, 3D animation, 3D art and such.

My current rig (in my specs) can do it, but not without its studders and hickups when working with large files.

My budget alows for around $3500-5000 for everything, building the case, new components, dual wide screens and watercooling.

Your budget is pretty high sooo... I would find any AMD with a 2MB Cache size...I think the 5200 has one and the 4000 has one. Raptors would be a plus as far as load times and such. DX10 is out so why not delve in that. And I know Vista is supposed to blow Mac OSX out of the water as far as rendering goes and the full version is leaked. Mac users are for once "two" steps behind.. (lol just messin aroud, but its true!)

And if your looking for a monitor Ive got this one for sale locally for $180 new in box with reciept. Dually 19'd Its 720i/p HD

I do a lot as far as web design asn such and i have no problems at all. I dont really go into the 3D rendering that much (CAD and such) but I would imageine it wouldn't be a problem.

Yea, I was considering the 5200 now that the price has dropped a good bit.

Scratch the case, keyboard, mouse, sound card and replace the Intel w/ Amd and it sounds good.

Why AMD over Intel??? The E6600 will beat anything AMD has to offer

Plus, no SLI on that rig... given dual displays... but a single, powerful card
