Blizzard employee needs a build for home. Help please. - Page 2

post #11 of 33
Looking up on google to this very question...Seems a workstation card might be your best bet...... workstation for rendering..and maybe a lower end fermi card(like a 460) for gaming(if that can be done that is)...

Read this in these threads....

a quick look at newegg brought this up...not TOO expensive but little more than a 580

Ya, I'm still kinda not sure what to do. Budget is gonna be close, so I'm going to have to trim down in some areas.

Rampage III for sure is getting purchased, going to go with Gskill 3x4 1333 to trim a few bucks instead of domi 1600. Still debating on getting an Antec 1000w and saving money vs Corsair 1000w. Will consider f3s in raid vs WD, but the SSD I'm going to have to shop around for and snipe if I catch a killer deal. Not liking what I'm seeing out there atm.

I'm liking that Quadro 4000 right about now. It's considerably cheaper than 580s sli. Plus, newegg is out of EVGA (only brand I buy), and newegg is easy to RMA with, which is a big deal for us on the vid card cuz we're testing it out. I'll check our local Frys for EVGA 580's (easy as hell to return to them as well), but if they are out, we'll go with that 4000. Either that, or try out 1 580 (and hope for the best).

If you buy 3 of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231313 you can still get 1600mhz ram, and save a little as well. They are actually a bit cheaper than the triple channel kit of the same module.

That Quadro looks pretty good, and I would think that it would be more than enough for WOW.

Definitely go with the 580's in Sli, I always see people raging about how they paid so much for a quadro and it sucks in all the games they play, since she will be gaming too the 580's are more than enough and will probably tear through rendering too. A high quality 1000W power supply would also be more than enough for what you have laid out for us.

x 2 580 + 6 Core i7 or i7 Sandy bridge + 6-8 Gigs of ram will be enough for all of her needs. And will stay under 2000.

The Quadro's/Tesla's, depending on which one you can get, can absolutely blow away the Geforce lines in Maya and certain other 3D apps. Especially if certain types of rendering/features is needed, such as quad-buffered 3D output, 128 bit color precision, hardware accelerated anti-aliased points/lines, etc. They do have huge rendering benefits, but only if she needs and uses those things will it make a difference in rendering times as well as quality. In certain situations the Quadro/Tesla will trounce the Geforce lines in rendering, though just not sure if these situations will apply to her needs.

Edit: Take a look at this article on Tom's. It is an older article comparing the GTX2xx series with the equivalent workstation cards of the time, but it gets my point across. Just look at the Maya numbers, and over 10x the performance in some other workstation apps. You are looking at a HUGE price difference of course though. So I am not saying to go that route instead, just giving you relevant information that you may need.

Will you need a computer case as well?

just thought i'd let you know that there is a 128gb kingston SSD on woot.com right now (for another 30min or hour:30 dont know their time zone) for $200. Less RMA support kinda stuff... but i've had no problems with woot loot

Antec Twelve Hundred and I7 950 already purchased and delivered.

/sigh everytime I reload this thread, I start reconsidering my route! Hehe, I guess that's a good thing, as nobody really like to double work. I'd rather be sure the first time around.

If it were as easy as saying a Quadro <$1000 would tear up SLI 580s in rendering, and play WoW at great frames, that would be golden. But I'm seeing claims of 580's in SLI render just fine, which is easy to believe because 1: 580's in SLI are just BEAST! and 2: It's only Wow. It's not on the CryEngine2.

I'm fairly sure she'll be rockin a 24'-30' monitor if it matters.

Imo, get the gtx 580 sli and spend the rest on an SSD and ram. For a mobo, you don't need a rampage, this is much cheaper and serves the same purpose: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131641
