Budget of 4,000$ USD - Page 15  

post #141 of 415
I think your overloading him with info.

I would say go to new egg and buy a ~$2000 pre built gaming machine

Here is a link to get you started:

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16883227332

There are many more systems to look through, if you see one and want to know if its good post back here with the link and we will tell you if it's a good deal.

Edit: Stay around $2000

C4D (cinema 4D) runs great on my sig rig, you can probably spend half that if you build it but why not spend 4k

Compaddict has contacted me by a private message, and he supports really good and awesome ideas that I will put into consideration when I make my purchases. I Think it will be buying the I7-950, right now as we speak.

So yeah. I will just take this slowly.

This is the one I will be buying correct?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115211

Just making sure before I buy it.

John, if you do decide to go with the 950 check to see if you have a microcenter in your area. They sell the same processor for $199.99, $100 cheaper than on newegg.

This is really frustrating.

I've got it down a little bit now.

I am just going to be buying parts from newegg, and I will be putting them all in a huge box for him for his bday, and we'll build the computer together as a son and father relationship.

But everyone posted so many different types of builds, I have no idea!

-John

I think I just need a buddy to talk to on MSN/Instant Messenging program to just chat and buy what You recommend I need, (That is a experienced computer person) Thanks

1. What state do you live in? I saw asked before, but didn't see if you answered.

2. I would NOT recommend the 950 if your son wants lots of "cores". 980x is a better choice, and fits nicely into your $4K budget, as the type of stuff he is going to be doing, actually thread well.

3. Stay away from the SR-2 Motherboard that he/others recommended.

Absolutely make sure he gets the U3011 30" Dell monitor.

The reasoning for my suggestions in plain english is that the the work that he does will take advantage of the extra processing power of the 980x (unlike most of us that have them, we just use them for epeen reasons) The i7-950 will be a lot slower. The reason I suggest not going with the Sr-2 mobo is simply b/c if you were super rich and could have afforded it, you would have bought it on the spot, that's obviously not the case.

Tell him if he needs that much power, then he can use this current build to do render projects for people, and use that money to save up and buy it himself.

Please make sure to take lots of pics and post them when you build this together, really kinda cool that you put this thought into it. Reminds me back when I helped my dad upgrade memory and add a CD-Rom drive/Soundblaster card to our 486. Watched an instructional VHS that came with it and everything. Had a whopping 4MB of RAM after that upgrade

I fully support this! There are plenty of people on OCN I would trust to walk someone through building a PC. Then again plenty I wouldn't
