View Full Version : Building a new system

07 July 2012, 08:01 PM

Im currently planning to build a new system for using Maya, Mudbox, After Effects, Photoshop. A crucial point is scenes with massive polycount, 4K textures also fast rendering in mental ray would be nice.

This is what I thought so far:

CPU: Intel i7 2600K
GPU: Gainward GeForce GTX 580
Motherboard: MSI Z68A-GD55 (G3)
Power supply: Cougar PowerX 700W
CPU Cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock Advanced C1
Disk Storage: LiteOn iHAS624
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 7200 2000GB, SATA 6Gb/s
Box: Sharkoon Rebel 12 Economy
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit SB inkl. SP1

1360 Euro ~1670 Dollar (thats my upper limit)

I recently heard, that a nVidia Geforce Quadro 2000 is better for 3D applications, although GTX would be better for games performance. What do you think about the performance and compatibility of the system?
