It seems to me though that the whole point of a forum is to post a question and then come up with a cumulative answer based on everyones opinions and discuss everything amongst multiple people which leads you to an overall well balanced decision. If I post on a forum I want to weigh tons of user input to come up with the best answer to my question.

I just think that the best decisions can't be made with a single person no matter how much they know. I feel bad for this guy now because to me it seems like someone pulled him away from a valuable resource of information and then filled his head with misinformation. I doubt that was the persons intention but you can't seriously tell me that you understand the difference between a system used for 3D rendering and graphic design versus an average gaming system, because that build he bought looks just like an average gaming system to me. Minus that hard drive which I wouldn't even use in a gaming system.

In the end the system he got will be a pretty big upgrade over what he has currently... but honestly he could have done better.

THIS !! it is a good build but cud have done better

What he ended up with is pretty average for the "budget" proposed in this thread. The 970 is under $600, and the 960 is $300 now.

What happened to this rig? This would've been WAY better for a Rendering machine.

Based on what Tutoriael wants and what his son needs*, the following build should be considered if he has not yet ordered the PC parts that some people convinced him to go with.

i7 980x + GTX 580 $1,464.98
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.602308

ASUS P6X58D-E + Patriot 12GB DDR3 $399.98
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.594971

Corsair AX-850w $189.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139015

Crucial C300 System Drive $264.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148348

Caviar Black 2TB 6.0GB/s Storage Drive $169.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136792

LG DVD burner $16.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827136177

NZXT Phantom $139.99 $20 off w/ promo code EMCKHKB59: $119.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146068

Hyper 212+ CPU cooler $29.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835103065

Grand Total for PC parts to go with the Awesome 30" Dell Monitor:
$2,676.90 (and about $15-16 shipping and then minus $20 for the promo code)




*Edit: for those who do not read through this thread: Tutoriael wants the best for his son and his son needs and will be using all that processing power.
The only thing this rig needed replacing was the cooler with a NH-D14 or something.

I'm sure glad I didn't spend a lot of time in this thread like others did...

There is NO reason he would need to have an unlocked multiplier..
I said that at the beginning of the thread but everyones suggestions leaned towards gaming.

Jesus, if I had $4000 to spend on a computer.........
post #378 of 415
980x is complete overkill, and the GPU suxx balls for 3d apss. all cards of the fermi series cant handle 2sided faces. so i would rather invest the money from the cpu in some quadro or firegl card which 3d apps will benefit a lot more from than some overpriced cpu.
or get a ps/c4d/zbrush/mari licence and a normal cpu.

So is $4000 for a computer budget. In fact, that would be the only time I could ever justify buying a 980x. So, why not?
