New user, long time lurker
I'm hoping to get some advice on which components I should use for my new rig.
Basically, I do professional graphic design and Video editing work. I work with pretty much all the programs from the adobe master suite and I usually have 2 open at the same time at any given time.
I'm currently running a pretty crappy laptop hooked up to a 20" relatively accurate TN monitor and I really want to utilize the full $4000 to get a proper desk setup with 2-3 IPS monitors, a proper mechanical keyboard, a logitech MX performance mouse (one of the best mice out there in my opinion) and a relatively 'future proof' system that will last a good 6-10 years of work.
This has to be an absolute power horse and $4K is really the most I can spend.
I have no real preference for parts but I do want the following:
~More than 2 TB of storage
~All peripherals including Speakers, monitors, etc. (No need for headsets)
~Some sort of wireless adapter
~Anything and everything I need to get up and running as soon as I build it.
Hope I was somewhat specific. Thank you in advance!
So, you are doing professional graphic design with a mouse?
No I already have a medium sized Intuos 5. Sorry for not clarifying that earlier.
The only reason I love the MX performance so much is because of its amazing ergonomic look and feel and My current mouse is tiny while my hand is quite large. That's why I would really love to get it with this build.
EDIT: So I made a small first draft of what I believe this build should contain. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/LFp3 << What do you guys think? Can we work from there?
Something like this:
Asus SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0
32GB ECC RAM
Samsung SSD 840Pro
Two different 2TB hdd (just in case of firmeware bugs)
PNY Quadro 4000 (or any that is supported by the Adobe suite)
Dell UltraSharp U2713H or U3014
But i dont know why you suddenly come up with gtx titan...
A gtx680 will be enough i think.
Fractal r4 is large enough to house all the components I need Thanks for the suggestion though
Also the Titan just whoops every other card's ass in CUDA performance, as well as multi-monitor performance. Plus all those people I went around asking, all recommended a titan in a $4k build. They said It wouldn't do it justice otherwise.
