Just put together a new build for a customer. Want some feedback.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So I was approached by a customer that wanted a high end graphic design computer that he could also use to game. He told me had 2500 to spend on it and already had a monitor. He wanted all high end parts, top tier stuff thats reliable. At first I thought about going with Ivy Bridge or Haswell, but realized that for what he wanted a SB-e system was attainable. So here is what I came up with. Totaled up right at 2400 with a legit version of 7 professional.

I7 3930k
Gigabyte x79 UP4
256gb Samsung 840 Pro
32gb ADATA 2133 Ram
2 x WD Re4 1tb
Evga Gtx 770 SC With ACX cooling
Seasonic x650
Lg Blu Ray
Lian Li pc 7hx case
Corsair H80i

I think this will destroy everything he throws at it for a while.

Edit: So 30 views and no feedback. Ill take that as a good sign.

I do not think that 770 will last him long ....

Graphic design is a bit more GPU intensive, no? If that is the case I would perhaps drop the CPU to a quad and get him a secondary card.

I think this will destroy everything he throws at it for a while.

Few things:

Change Memory to G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB 2133MHz.

Change Storage Drives to two WD Caviar Blues

Lian Li Case doesn't offer anything for $100, if you are looking into something clean go with Fractal Design Define R4

You probably are going to want at least an H100i or Swiftech H220 for a 3930k @ like 4.4/4.5GHz they get pretty hot.

Besides that looks good.

For serious future proofing might want to look into a GTX 780.

Not necessarily. The 3d modeling side more so. For high detail graphic renders the more
Hp the CPU has the better. Besides isn't the 770 based off the same tesla arch that the Titan employs? If I'm not mistaken most highend workstation use tesla based rendering. As for the cooling, gskill, and caviar blues. The h80i should be plenty for 4.0 which is what my client specifically asked for and it's on sale right now. Also I usually prefer gskill as well but have been using alot of adata ram and its been rock solid run as advertised perfect for me. If you have other experiences with it please share em. The re4 is an enterprise class drive and another spec the client came up with as well. I normally use the blues, or in raid instances the reds.

Then it looks like you dont need any feedback then. Answered all your own questions. rolleyes.gif

If you could snag a GTX780 in there it would be nice because the GTX770 is based-off the GK104 (same as the GTX680) which is weak for GPGPU.

770 is just a rebadged 680. 780 is the one that is similar to titan.

Not enough room in the budget unfortunately. The 770 has faster ram and higher memory bandwidth from the specs I've seen. Which is where the 680 ran into issues right?

What gpu in the same price range would you guys go with? Amd lacks cuda but from what Ive seen that can only be an issue in very specific instances and for the most part
wont hurt anything?
