I would say the cpu is just fine, personally I use GPU rendering but ram is also important,

one way to bypass that is to work at low poly in parts, then step it up as needed, using the needed res for the project. then you can combine the parts, rather than building one big scene, build each component separately then combine them all.

to be honest in order of importance:

GPU
RAM
then CPU

If you look at my rig in my sig, you can see, that this is what I wanted to design my computer for, however I only do some on the side, not professionally. although I did go to full sale before I got bored lol. smile.gif
will use maya 2013 sp2,very us)ful advice,thanks a lot smile.gif well I'm entering animation college in few weeks,cuurently studying in art college,so do you think 8gb of ram will be fine for the beginning part? I'll be adding another 8gb as I progress,since I needed to upgrade my cpu I did it,my 960T at times was suffering in BF3 multiplayer so that was another reason for upgrade but then again like I told I got an exceelent offer on FX8150 (can't afford expensive i7 cpu because i7 quads and hexa core ones are much more expensive here & i7 3770k costs almost twice than FX8350 here in India so upgrading to an used FX8150 for much less was best deal for me (it cost me much less than even a FX8320)
the gpu I'm now using is a HD6970.
I can't buy a workstation gpu because I'm a gamer too.
Will only fetch a workstation gpu after I become a professional 3D artist in future. smile.gif
BTW how the performence of GTX Titan in autodesk maya? Since its a slight cut down consumer version of workstation god Tesla K20X I'm curious? Does it have same workstation card like performence?
