Hey guys,
So I am trying to build my very first rig. I think I'm completely lost! I have looked through specs on a lot of different hardware and realized I don't even know enough to know what I'm looking for!
I want a rig that will do 3D rendering really Quickly and Quietly. I will be running everything in the Adobe Creative Suite, as well as Chief Architect, Microstation, and Several CAD programs I also have a lot of file transfer over the internet and USB. I run at least a few of them at a time and on at least 2 screens. I HATE waiting for it to render and I can't stand a noisy computer! So, render quick and really quiet would be best! Budget is about $2000 USD.

Items I ALREADY OWN
Phantom 410 Case-Red
Pioneer BDR-2209 Internal BD/DVD/CD Writer
Corsair Hydro Series H55

I know it's not much, but, ya gotta start somewhere right?!?

I am open for suggestions and recommends and education!
Thank you!

Budget? EDIT: 2k, sorry glanced right over it

I'd go x99 platform with 5820k cpu,

Asus X99 Deluxe LGA-2011-3 motherboard

and at least 8 GB Crucial Ballistix DDR4 2400 for ram

Rosewill Capstone 550 for powersupply

What are you needing for HDD/SSD space? Will the video card be used for gaming as well?

Pay no mind to the parts I choose here. Just an example. Although I think they would do what you want nicely, I didn't really put much thought into them, and there are plenty of places to save money. Was just attempting to come in under budget. Others here will know better what you need for your purposes....

A newer, more quiet cooler that will allow a higher overclock for faster rendering, a 4GB card that is probably overkill but is priced fairly, 32GB of RAM so you're set there, enough storage for work projects on the HDD and a 256GB for your other apps and OS, and a modular PSU for a clean build.

I don't have the most experience in workstation graphics so the Firepro card may be too much.

You guy's would really build a heavy duty CAD machine on an Asrock MB? And while 32gb of mem should be more than enough, do you not think he should have the option of 64 if needed (8 slots with 4 x 8gb, n 4 free slots)? Just me thinking out loud here...

Why not Asrock? Oh ya, only Asus makes nice boards I guess lol. Why don't you suggest a build that is in the interest of the OP's needs and budget instead of crapping on other peoples suggestions?

I'm not anti Asrock, but cheap is just that, cheap. And CAD rendering is hard on board components. Plus down time on a working PC equals money, as opposed to playing games...

Where exactly do you see me "crapping" on others suggestions? I believe my last post was a question. And if you notice, my suggested build was the first one. I think you're working on some personal issues there that are causing you to see what you want, as opposed to what is actually written...

I did overlook your suggested build, my mistake. However your second post did come across as being rude to others who were also making suggestions. I looked at the Asrock board mentioned and it actually looks like it is made with some decent components. As for the rest of what you just said, you seem to be trying to justify your own lack of ethics.

The Cooler Master VSM 750 watts is only $6 more and its a better PSU.

I don't know why pshootr got all mad, yikes.

Anyway, I think the ASRock board would be more than adequate to his needs. A real, hardcore workstation build would cost a significant amount more than this build, even though his setup will be able to do anything he wants it to. Also, he could definitely move up to a mobo with 8 slots, but just knowing its there doesn't serve much of a purpose.

guess he could always sell those parts and upgrade (to like a 5830k/64gb or something, next gen of cpu's maybe..) if he feels this isn't good enough, i think it's a good build you guys made !

Well I hope you for one would know I would never do that. You've been too great a help to me personally...

I like the dual graphics cards. Do you think they are necessary? Note that is a question, hence the question mark. Wouldn't want anyone question my ethics...

I mean CAD rendering is mostly CPU and memory isn't it? Not sure about the 3D stuff...

It has become apparent to me that I was a bit touchy, and overreacted. So I would like to offer you an apology.

Don't worry about it. Happens to the best of us. Plus I can be blunt at times so...
