New PC for 3D, Jun 2008

Hi everybody.

I need a new updated PC to work with Maya, Vue, Poser and 2d applications. I need some help with it.

First doubt: Is really better a Q9450 than Q6600 for 3D or is just a wate of money. (I'm sorry but I don't know what is the relationship between the cores and rendering speed (What’s the difference between this "desktop" CPU Q9450 and this "server" CPU E5420.??

Second: thanks to this forum I finally have an idea about how many Ram I will need. What I don't understand is what's the "Timing" for example: ?

What's the best motherboard for Q9450?

Can I find a good replacement for a Quadro video card? They are so expensive and so specific that I don't feel really comfortable thinking in buy one.
In the other hand you have the "gamers" video cards and you can find your ""The Best Graphics Cards for the Money..."" but are those usefull to work in 3D?

Last question: Is possible builld a quiet Computer????????

Now I'm runing a PIV 3.0Ghz - Ram 1.5 Mb - Nvidia 660 128mb. Its a beautiful PC to work in 2d but in 3D with just a soft spot ligth it become a turttle.
I hope somebody could help me with at least one of those questions.
Thanks in advance.
