I'm 3d graphics designer and want to buy a new powerful PC for my work
But I want to know the best devices that is compatible with my work

--- Rendering speed is the most important thing to me ---
--- and real time render too ---

so that I prefer Intel Core i7-2600k Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz
and 8 or 6 G of ram DDR3
NVIDIA Quadro VGA card

so I need to know the specific model of the VGA and motherboard and ram with high cash
and this processor is good for me or what ??????

What's your budget? I would buy 16 gigs of ram, just for conveniency. The most important thing for rendering is processor, if you plan to use CPU-based rendering. If not, then your videocard is also important. You should first choose your rendering engine.

NVIDIA Quadro VGA card...using maya mentalray in rendering
Don't bother, the minute differences are only apparent in a few select (typically CAD based) programs. For general 3D it isn't the best bang/buck.

budget isn't a problem right now...

I'm not sure we know enough about the OP's tools and decision-making criteria to make this assessment.

Just because a gaming card is good enough for You doesn't mean it's good enough for everybody as a default.

ok now


-Intel Core i7-2600k Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz
-MSI P67A-GD55 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
-NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800
-4*4 Ram DDR3

I think that what I need
but i have a problem here .... the VGA card "NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800" is very expensive :) can you gave me anther "substitute"

and what about the brands of RAM !?

There are newer tech pro GPU's that offer much better price/performance than QFX5800.

The QFX4000 seems to be a very good value, although I have a feeling that AMD is going to be launching something much better for less money very soon.

do you mean Quadro 4000 "without QFX"

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814133324&cm_re=quadro_4000-_-14-133-324-_-Product

it didn't support "SLI Frame Rendering"
http://www.nvidia.com/object/quadro_sli_rendering.html
I don't know that will effect on the performance or not ?
but I think it's good :thumbsup:

First time I have seen anything about SFR with Quadros, looks like it improves viewport on certain applications. Where it would help more is in the CUDA side if you have large scenes/textures/Ouput Frame sizes, to prevent overflowing the RAM.
