I use ERDAS software to process large satellite imagery. Individual files go in too the Gbs of size, when manipulating them the RAM requirement can go through 10's of Gb so I'm looking to start with 4 32Gb Samsung RAM chips, later upgrading to 8. Maybe 16...
The ERDAS software supports DP rigs and utilises them well apparently
M.2 OS and programs SSD
PCIe SSD storage, Intel 750, would love the new Samsung enterprise ones for its built in RAID ability and speed, is basically two 800Gb SSDs side by side
Couple of Tb hard disks for non operational work, all data being worked on gets moved to the PCIe SSD for processing
Nvidea Quadra 5000 card, only one screen, will be a 34" ultra wide,.
A GPU will be considered but at a later date, Tesla, not pHi
Not completely sure on the processors yet, need to confirm cores-threads-speed
Build price around 10k
Currently acquiring parts:
Asus Z10PE D16 WS, Dual XEON, 128Gb RAM, Quadra 5200,
maybe Nvidea Tesla...
