Workstation Build $1750

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Target Budget: $1750 (Excluding Mouse/Mat/Keyboard/External HDD) around $2000 all-in.

Going to be building 3 of these for use in an office environment.

General build theme is to run top of the line off the shelf components and have them run cool and stable so they'll hopefully still be going strong in 2020.
The only changes they'll see within this timeframe is to software packages. No components will ever be upgraded or swapped out. All 3 systems will be completely replaced during a hardware refresh when needed.


Lots of data crunching, daily disc encoding, heavy multitasking, multiple remote desktop sessions, at least dual - maybe triple monitor usage, 3D performance is not a factor.

Here's something I threw together, my main decision at this point is - is X99 worthwhile or should I be aiming for 4790Ks instead? Any input or suggested builds most welcome.

Solid. Only thing I'd change is maybe a psu with a higher efficiency and go with Win 8.1 if your software supports it. Maybe a higher end gpu but that's just me.

That system is not very well balanced as the PSU is way too cheap for an X99 system.
Why you should not buy a Corsair CX

When I put the core of this build together a few weeks ago I was only given a budget of $1250 so I was trying to cut some corners. The budget has crept up since then so I'll definitely swap out that PSU, I just didn't want to end up with a 750w PSU that'll never see even 50% utilization. The only games these systems will see are Minesweeper and FreeCell.

As far as the OS goes, my hands are tied, it has to be Win7 x64 for legacy software and third party vendor support compatibility.

Thanks for the input so far guys.

EDIT: My gut reaction is to hit every potential problem with a sledgehammer, which leads me to the HX750i with a 7 year warranty.

You can get a Rosewill Capstone 550 watts for not that much more and thats a all around much better PSU.
If you are not going to overclock you can even get away with the 450 watts Capstone.

do you need that kind of video card if it's not for games? the other thing i'd consider is getting a 250ssd and a cheaper corsair case. most of their cases are really nice. plus i think 250 is plenty for a boot drive. but i guess that depends on what kind of programs you are installing.

i haven't priced it, but have you looked into a dual xeon build?
post #7 of 12
Why not a cheaper case,a 30usd windows from reddit,a x99 extreme4 and put a r9 290?
post #8 of 12
Arch,

X99 is the heart of the enthusiast platform for performance tuning enthusiasts, not the workstation/enterprise/professional/server platform.

Here's how to do workstation quality computers:


C612 chipset ATX build:
CPU: E5-1620V3 or E5-1650V3 ~$300-600
HSF: SilverStone AR03 ~$50
MOBO: Supermicro X10SRA or GigaByte MW50-SV0 ~$280-320
RAM: 2X8GB or 4x8GB DDR4 ECC RDIMM's, (example 2X CT8G4RFS4213 or 1X CT4K8G4RFS4213 ) ~$200-400
GPU: W4100: ~$160
SSD: Sandisk X210 512GB ~$250
Storage: WD2000F9YZ ~$125
PSU: Seasonic SSR-450RM or SS-400FL2 ~$80-120
Case: Fractal Design Define R5 ~$110
~$1550+


C226 chipset mATX build:
CPU: E3-1231V3 ~$250
HSF: SilverStone AR02 ~$30
MOBO: ASRock Rack C226M WS ~$180
RAM: 2x8GB DDR3 ECC UDIMM's (example 2X KVR16LE11L/8 ) ~$165
GPU: W4100: $160
SSD: Sandisk X210 512GB ~$250
Storage: WD2000F9YZ ~$125
PSU: Seasonic SSR-450RM or SS-400FL2 ~$80-120
Case: Fractal Design Arc Mini R2 ~$100
~$1350+


E3/E5 chosen for ECC memory support.
C226/C612 chipsets chosen for ECC memory support.
ECC memory chosen for maximum reliability and compute accuracy.
W4100 chosen because it has 4 active displayport headers, which will provide maximum flexibility in monitor connectivity. Simply buy passive cable adapters for HDMI/DVI/DP as needed for up to 4 monitors.
Enterprise class storage selected for obvious reasons.
For PSU's, Delta and Seasonic are the main OEMs to look at for workstation computers, though when the price is right, higher end FSP, SuperFlower, and CWT options are also nice. If you want to spring for something really nice and massively overkill, consider the Antec HCP-750, which is OEMed by Delta and is fantastic.

I largely agree with what mdocod is saying here.

You say that you are doing a bunch of number crunching work, but you do not specify what programs you are using. Depending on the program they might be able to leverage GPU compute (open CL or cuda).

I feel like there is a completely different and better solution if all you need is cpu compute power.

and i agree with these two. that's what i was getting at before deciding to go into the nitty gritty.
