2000~ USD PC

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
I know you guys like to solve problems. So here we go with mine:


I'm not in 'MURICAH, so newegg/tigerdirect/cyberpowerpc/anyotherUSonlycompany is scratched out, I need to buy either from ebay or amazon, shipping weight of the PC/Parts needs to be under 15kg (so probably no full-tower cases), I'm registered with a shipping company so I have a physical address in US, (but if there was free/cheap international shipping (impossible) it would be pretti coo')


Anyways,
the PC should be able to run all future games on max with 60+ FPS, I also need something that will be powerful for 3D Modelling and Digital Sculpting ( Maya, ZBRUSH), I'm also a game developer so I need something that will be powerful in Unreal Engine 4.


If I was to build a pc from scratch, that would be my first time, so please suggest me some good material to study before ******* up the pc parts.
I found a PC in Ebay http://bit.ly/R8VtLK , sadly it doesn't have a PSU, another would be http://bit.ly/OOyIus (or any other pc's that the seller is selling http://bit.ly/1gS18uo )

I played around with cyberpowerpc a bit before facing the harsh fact that I won't be able to buy that sexy PC, the result was : 2TB HDD/ 16GB RAM/ GTX780/ Some MB (I don't know anythinh about MB's) / a HAF case (not sure which one) / Corsair 800 PSU / I7-4770k cpu / water cooled.


Budget: Total should stay under 2100 USD, anything else is a nono.

I would totally help you! biggrin.gif
I am a 3d modeler in training and I'll say 16gb of ram is a must and a High GB ram count on your graphics card will help alot!
Ebay just started an international Shipping program, so buying new parts from there is a possibility.
So 2100 is hard cap?
Tell me this.
Do you need a KB/m?
Do you need a Monitor?
Do you want to overclock?
Win7 or Win8?
Tell me those things, and Ill help ya out no problem wink.gif
What country? (currency)

So this is just what I came up with for you.

The Corsair Air is a Fantastic Case for Work or for Home, Its compact, Sleek and Easy to access all of its components and build!
16gb is almost a must for work. 180gb SSD for all of your programs to make them Snappy and quick. GTX780 3gb should be more than enough for all of your work applications, however someone might try to recommend you a Quadro, Tesla or similar Nvidia workstation solution. Those are very expensive and while they could be implemented would take away from the rest of your components.
Here is part list and breakdown, All from Amazon. If you could somehow do Newegg, you would be able to save a bit.

Corsair HX650 only has 2 PCI-E cables the Seasonic G its based on has 4 and its cheaper so there is little point in the HX650 Vs the G, Also you dont need more then 550 watts for one video card

The EVGA SuperNova G2 750 watts is 120$ as well and its a much better unit with 100 watts more for the same money so the HX650 makes zero sense Vs the G2

The GTX 780 only needs two PCI-E cables and unless he plans on SLI there isnt a reason too because editing programs very rarely scale well with SLI, This PSU matches the Case, and is 80+ Gold, And if he decides to overclock heavily that extra wattage will help. Especially over a very long sustained time like rendering out videos is. Sometimes it can take 4hours on max load to render out a single frame, not to mention with heavy heavy scenes with lots of pixels. On top of that Corsairs Proffesional Series has an EXCELLENT long 7 year warranty. Which is important for work applications.
Based on that is the Corsair PSU still a good choice? For work that is. Im no PSU guru like you however.

80 plus has nothing to do with quality, also if the G2 is the same price he should get that one its better and he has room for SLI/Corssfire later if he wants that.

Why buy the lest good of the two if they are the same price you get more for no extra cost

Done.
post #8 of 34
I'll post something when PCPartPicker isnt being attacked by hackers.

*EDIT*
And by that I mean when my internet stops being the POC it is and works.

*EDIT*
Ok here is what I think of this.


http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3pYbP

CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($319.99 @ Amazon)
Great CPU for doing 3D modeling work, though I would personally go for a 4930k, its slightly out of your budget, sort of.
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($107.99 @ Amazon)
Keep everything nice and cool.
Motherboard: Asus Z87M-Plus Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($132.99 @ Amazon)
I wanted to go for a micro-atx build to save on shipping costs due to less weight and size
Memory: Kingston Beast 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2400 Memory ($79.99 @ Amazon)
Memory: Kingston Beast 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2400 Memory ($79.99 @ Amazon)
I like this memory. Thats it.
Storage: PNY XLR8 240GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($114.99 @ Amazon)
Cheapest 240GB SSD you can buy that I would actually trust.
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($58.24 @ Amazon)
Standard 1T.
Video Card: XFX Radeon R9 290 4GB Video Card ($439.99 @ Amazon)
Ok so for this, if your programs support OpenCL rendering, get this card, if not, get the GTX 780, or spend the bit extra and get the GTX Titan because its like a quadro and gaming gpu all in one.
Case: Aerocool DS-Cube MicroATX Mini Tower Case ($119.99 @ Amazon)
My case of choice for micro-atx builds due to its massive amounts of cooling and/or quietness.
Power Supply: SeaSonic G 550W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($79.99 @ Amazon)
Great PSU, great price.
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24F1ST DVD/CD Writer ($22.19 @ Amazon)
When do you use this.
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8 (OEM) (32-bit) ($116.48 @ Amazon)
Get whichever operating system floats your boat.
Monitor: Asus VS247H-P 23.6" Monitor ($157.00 @ Amazon)
Between me and my friends, we've gotten 8 of these, no dead pixels, all 100% working to this day.
Total: $1829.82

CPU: Intel Core i7-4930K 3.4GHz 6-Core Processor ($559.99 @ Amazon)
CPU Cooler: NZXT HAVIK 140 90.3 CFM CPU Cooler ($61.98 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: Asus Rampage IV Gene Micro ATX LGA2011 Motherboard ($285.49 @ Amazon)
Memory: Kingston Beast 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2400 Memory ($79.99 @ Amazon)
Memory: Kingston Beast 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2400 Memory ($79.99 @ Amazon)
Storage: PNY XLR8 240GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($114.99 @ Amazon)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($58.24 @ Amazon)
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 770 2GB Video Card ($339.99 @ Amazon)

Power Supply: SeaSonic G 550W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($79.99 @ Amazon)

Monitor: Asus VS247H-P 23.6" Monitor ($157.00 @ Amazon)
Total: $2076.31

I decided to see what a 4930K rig would look like. This would most certainly help with rendering and such, but I had to downgrade the GPU to a 770 and cooling to an NZXT Havik 140. Granted that cooler is no slouch but its no H100.
