Gamer Rig / Workstation (3Ds Max)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone. I'm a bit unsure where to post this as I might change the build completely depending on your feedback.

I'm trying to build a new PC. It will be used primarily for High end Gaming. But I'm also going to use it for 3Ds Max. (modeling, rendering etc.)

I'd like to be able to run games like:
DayZ Arma2/Arma3, Skyrim, Farcry3, BF3/4, GTA5, TESonline - and practically any upcoming FPS / MMORPG's on Maximum settings.

The optimal thing would be 2 computers. A Gamer rig and a Workstation - but I don't have that kind of money.

So I wanna try and combine the best from both worlds into one build. (if possible)

(I've been away from 3dsmax for about 12 years - So for now 3dsmax will just be a hobby)



The gfx card fried on the old PC, but I'll be using the screen (1920 x 1200), keyboard, mouse and HDD from it - so that should be covered for now.

Will this build work? Any bottlenecks?

Any help/adjustments is appreciated really.


MOBO:
Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H - Rev. 1.0

CPU:
Core i7 I7-4770K 8 MB (Intel Boxed)

CPU COOLER:
NZXT Kraken X60

GPU:
eVGA GeForce GTX TITAN Superclocked (6 GB)

RAM:
2x8GB Crucial Ballistix Sport XT DDR3-1866 CL10

PSU:
Corsair AX860i

SSD:
Samsung 840 EVO MZ-7TE120 120 GB

CASE:
NZXT Phantom 410


OS:
WIN 7 (64 bit)

This will be about 2.800 USD when I convert it from my local currency DKK (Denmark)
This is absolute maximum btw.

2.300 USD was the original budget, but if this^ build works, I'm buying it.


I know a GTX TITAN won't perform near a good Workstation card, but it should work.
(i hope ^ please correct me if I'm wrong)


Less expensive cards in SLI could do better in games, but then I wouldn't have the 6GB VRAM for

3dsmax - which is why I picked the Titan (to get the best from both worlds)


If you have an idea for a better build (high end gaming/3DsMax) for around 2.500 USD please speak up.

Thanks in advance to anyone who contribute to this thread.

The build you posted is fine. But, if you have an HDD already with stuff on it, why get an SSD?

Installing the OS on an SSD along with 3dsmax+games and using the old HDD as storage, would make the system faster. At least that was the idea.
