Building a Pc for Rendering
Well i am building a pc specially for rendering (well maybe for other things as well like photoshop games etc).
Below is the set up ive got so far, what i would like to know is, if this set up is good enough, as i would love to have a pc that can render fast.
You see i am a 3d student and i need a pc that can render photorealistic/animation/baking/fluid/cloth sim etc, and in the quickest time possible, as i need to meet dateline etc, i do intend to use this com even in the work industries, so please suggest me something.
Suggestion and opinions are greatly appreciated.
Oh and my budget is around 3k usd or so, thanks

It's an excellent high end single CPU configuration.
Given the budget though 16GB of RAM is a bit of a pity when you could put just a little bit more cash into it and go for 32. If you go for 16 to upgrade later if needed (never a bad idea) make sure you get 2x8GB modules so you can extend with another two instead of replacing.
Also not a fan of vengeance ram bang for buck. G.Skill Ares is cheaper, better timed, and has a less obtrusive footprint.
You could also save a few bucks on the h100, it hardly makes any difference compared to the models just below. I tried it as well as the 50 and 80, i and not, and the old h80 (non i) turned out to be the best bang for buck, hardly a degree of difference to the 100 and the radiator is a lot easier to fit.

If need be, scale back the h100 to the h80 and the geforce 780 to a 770, but the bump from 16 to 32 gigs would be worth doing either of these.
