Building Xeon $1250 machine for Photoshop CC & Lightroom.

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Ok I originally started at the AMD forum and after a while ended up moving into a Xeon build instead. So far I like what I have and will post it to get people feedback here. However I do have one question. Is it worth to a photographer / photoshop CC user to have a 23" inch LED IPS monitor or to have a 24" inch LED regular monitor? After looking at some video I will go with the 23" inch Dell IPS monitor.

System made at Amazon Prime:

Please note that I can still get most of the discount via amazon using the forms for the parts that provides them. I also get everything in a 2 day business time frame.

Well I end up spliting the order between newegg and amazon prime because I like that Fractal case at newegg and it is cheaper. Plus the solid state drive was cheaper there. It seems every time I tried to put my order in an item would had sold out or price increase. lol Got tired of redoing my orders so I am done for now. Once I have all the parts I will take some pictures of the setup. =) thumb.gif

Did you forget a CPU on the Amason build or am I blind?
And you know I love the Fractal case smile.gif I know, I know. Its for her. Let her pick the case.

Nope the CPU was on page two of the list. The case is perfect since it has a business look to it. smile.gif unlike the phantom. It remind me of a Xeon workstation I used to have when working as an it assistant at the time.

I think running a workstation class machine on that tiny naked VRM package is "pushing it." Other than the Pro4 micro, I like the build as is.

Thank You "mdocod", you and the others that help me put all this together. It put me to do some research, watch YouTube videos and read lots of online review/post about all these parts allow me to get back into a little of the Intel world system combo builds. I feel that this build will be useful since the machine will not be OC at all, and it feels better than other options I was leaning toward at the begining. I also learn a few important elements about the Xeon CPU vs the FX-8350 and why it makes it a better chip for Photoshop. Lets just say I got to the point I started learning the architecture of each chip more than I have ever done in the pass on computer builds. So I learn that going the Xeon route for this Photoshop machine was the best for the money and overall system build.

The following is what I got order:

-Final System Setup-
CPU: Intel Xeon Processor E3-1230 v3 - $253.99
Mobo: ASRock H87M Pro4 LGA 1150 MicroATX - $82.99
Ram: 16GB DDR3 1866mhz Crucial Ballistix Tactical -$124.99
Video: ASUS HD7790-DC2OC-1GD5 Radeon HD7790 1GB GDDR5 128-bit - $109.99 (Rebate: $20.00)
SSD: Seagate 600 Series ST240HM000 2.5" 240GB SATA III - $129.99
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2 TB HDD SATA 6 Gb/s NCQ 64MB Cache - $86.27
PSU: OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W Modular High Performance - $69.99 (Rebate: $10.00)
Case: Fractal Design Define R4 with Window Black Pearl S - $79.99
Drive: Asus 24x DVD-RW SATA Internal OEM Optical Drive DRW-24B1ST - $21.95
OS: Windows 7 Professional SP1 64bit (OEM) - $138.98
Monitor: Dell S2340M 293M3-IPS-LED 23" inch - $149.99

Total: $1257.04 (out of pocket)
Final: $1227.04 (After Rebates)

Points I forgot to mention is that I feel she got a very rounded system with an IPS monitor, fast main drive, backup 2TB for now, decent ram speed and size, and room to grow a little before needing to go the much higher route.

Finally, I feel that this system should be a good starting point for her and she still can up the ram once more 16GB to max her system with 32GB. She can add a little more internal HDD if she wants thanks to the case and PSU power. Also She can still get one more Dell monitor and make her office/work area look very nice all thanks to the case and selection of monitors. I feel pretty good about this build and all thanks to everyone. Once I have it on hand I will take pictures and show the final setup with everything up and running. Hopefully no DOA. thumb.gif

If I ever have the money, I want to build a 2011 system. XD

Forget about that OCZ PSU that is not something you should buy

Right now on newegg you can get a Cooler Master V700 for 80$ after rebate

And that PSU makes that OCZ looks like a sad excuse for a PSU which it is

Yea I would not have made the switch to that OCZ PSU. Bottom barrel brand and old technology there. Modstream was considered mediocre but acceptable 4 years ago when 80+gold units were still rather thin pickings at high prices.

With so many PSUs in the 400-600W range to choose from that are 80+ gold rated and under $100, I don't quite understand why every build proposal you have come up with (in this thread and the prior) seems to have older PSU designs in it.

I would recommend 'splurging' and get a NEC P232W-BK-SV monitor and the Spectraview calibration package. It available from B&H. It is much better than the Dell monitor and if you are a serious photographer you won't regret the purchase as it will save you a lot of time and effort when you are processing digital negatives. I've had an earlier model for five years now and the colors are still correct and the monthly calibration only takes about five minutes or so.
