1- 3960x to 3930k
2- RIVE to AsRock Extreme 6
3- SAPHIRE 7970 to 2x 7950
4- 7970 to TITAN and 3960x to 3930k
5- Samsung 840 Pro SSD to Plextor m5 pro.
6- 16 GB System Memory instead of 32GB.
7- Less power supply.


For starters let's check the reseller's prices.

1- EVGA GeForce GTX TITAN 06G-P4-2790-KR 1,399.94$
2- Intel Core i7 Processor Extreme Edition i7-3960X 3.3GHz 15MB LGA2011 CPU, Retail w/o Fan 1,010.63
3- Asus Rampage IV Extreme. 519.979
4- Intel Core i7 Processor i7-3930K 3.2GHz 12MB LGA2011 CPU, Retail w/o Fan - BX80619I73930K 586.643
5- Plextor SSD N/A
6- AsRock Extreme 6 N/A
7- Sapphire VAPOR-X HD 7970 GHz Edition 6GB GDDR5 679.973


Now , let's see.
1- As for the 3960x to 3930k : I might change it , but i am thinking that Processing power is most important issue in a System especially if it is for a work system , i am not sure but i might consider changing it.
2- RIVE to AsRock Extreme6 : This MB is not available.
3- SAPPHIRE 7970 to 2x 7950 : NO, I am a crossfireX user and i know that Crossfire is not so much user friendly , I would prefer a single card instead of a dual card (Also to allow upgrade later if needed).
4- TITAN + 3930k = 1987 and 3960x + 7970 = 1691 , So 3960+7970 is cheaper , Also 7970 has better temps cause of the Vapor-X coolers.
5- Samsung 840 Pro to Plextor : Not possible the Plextor is not available.
6- I was going to 16GB Kit , but i also remember reading somewhere that buying 2x kit of NSize system memory is worse than buying 1x Kit of 2N Size System memory , That being said , If at any point of time System memory upgrade is needed there might be an issues , Also 1600 Speed is good for a couple more years.
7- After i am settled on what exactly i am going to buy , i am going to use one of those online calculators and determine exactly how much i need.

Just a correction op, Titan+3930k = $1570

The new system specs largely depend on what type of programs he is going to be running and the scale of projects he would be working on and any budgetary constraints he may have. He is most likely using Civil 3D, MicroStation or Carlson. If he is working on minor projects such as designing parking lots or drainage systems in a 2D environment then he doesn't need a very powerful system even for the next 5 years. If he is doing 3D modeling and working with massive point clouds that he would need to orbit around then I would suggest a powerful Xeon, a nice Firepro or Quadro GPU, SSD and at least 16GB of memory. I would much rather save some money and put it towards one or two high res 30" IPS monitors when working with Civil 3D.

3960x ... 0.1GHz ain't making a big difference for double the price. I would just OC it. Just a slight OC. Doesn't matter if you're into OC'ing or not just OC IT!
7970 vapor-x. Okay then. Just buy the normal clocked 3GB version and then set it 1GHz. Done. Again, you ask us on OCN and we will tell you the same. GHz editions are not any better than normal cards and there's NO NEED FOR 6GB! Even 3 1440p monitors can't use all 3GB for real (Not reserved, ACTUAL USAGE)
And also if you're worried about double cards dont be. Crossfire is mature enough and also the x79 extreme6 has 1 slot spacing for the 2nd card
No. X79 is freaking quad channel. If you aren't buying quad channel memory WHATS THE POINT OF A X79 THEN?! It's just that Corsair sticks are too tightly binned now. The normal 1600 and 1866 is so close enough that 1600 is not worth getting for G.Skill
I have edited the OP adding that the available reseller is not in the USA.
Also This system is not for me.
I do not think that he will be able to OC it.
I am also not even near the place of purchase (Reseller's place or installation's place)
Regarding the 6GB VRAM to 3GB VRAM , i might consider this also.
AsRock Extreme 6 is not available.
The memory i have listed is Quad channel , I do not quite understand this part. CMP32GX3M4X1600C10

Xeon , Firepro or quadro.
Well that is really really pricy and the quadros or the firepros are not available.

Any way i will ask him again for what kind of software he uses.









7970 3GB are 80$ cheaper than the 6GB.
Locally this can be spent on single good dinner invitation.

That would be really helpful at first smile.gif, I just assumed that parts would be bought in the US since you posted newegg links biggrin.gif. Where are you or your friend from?

 Im sure your friend has a limit to how big he wants to open his wallet... 

 

*a 2600k with a decent water cooler and some good RAM will be sufficient for any office or Auto-CAD related use..  not that i dont like some good overkill.. but your OP is like building a space shuttle to go to the grocery store.. rolleyes.gif

 

Asus Gene Z77

2600k

H100

7770 GPU

256GB SSD

1TB HDD

TX650W

2x nice 24" monitors

 

... your engineer friend would still be amazed at the performance and thankful you didnt kill his wallet.

Build him a mini-itx rig on a prodigy!
It will look much sexier than a hafX, plus will be somewhat mobile biggrin.gif

I bet an engineer would love the great performance inside a little beautiful simple machine

Initially i was not told about any financial boundaries.
Any way that might change.
Regarding the performance , I will tell him the average price on those components and wait for an answer if they are accepted or not, but after i explore all my options first.
At last , if i am going to get something less than what i have now , i am would probably consider an AMD build, or a 3770 build , I am not going all the way down to the 2600k smile.gif.

There is no need to move the RIG around , so the little box is not any addition really.
I might settle for something less than the Haf X though , I am open for suggestions.

You would consider AMD.. but 'toss' out a 2600k? You can run SB very well on a z77 you know.. and ivy isnt going to give an engineer anything they wont have with a good Sandy cpu.

*seems a bit like you want to hit a certain level of performance.. regardless of what the customer actually needs.

I was asked for a high level of performance regardless of the price.
It is what my "Friend" asked for (Not a customer).

Note : just cause you might think of it, there is no money in it for me smile.gif, Actually i have never helped any one regarding computer hardware issues for money.
