    For 1000-1700, NO

    The extra AMD cores will help rendering. The Intel costs more and has less cooling and storage. I don't know a lot about workstation specific cards, but I know GTX cards kick butt and support cuda. Btw the Builds are 1700 Dollar but the OS adds another hundred.

    If you need more help please ask.

    Thanks!! This is super helpful, but since the only difference is mostly the processor, how big is the difference between the AMD and the Intel ones. The AMD has 8 cores, so im guessing that it is more powerful, but the Intel is almost twice as expensive?

    Sorry for such a late reply, but the Intel has the advantage of Heat, Energy and obviously overclocking. The AMD is a great processor for apps that use the most cores, specifically 3D and Motion Graphics. The Intel has 4 real cores but hyper-threading pretends it has double, so 8. I know that Michael Theurer (Pro VFX artist) lives by his 8350 and says it performs just as well for a much lower cost. I am pretty sure the 8350 is the way to go, but Intel will give you an ounce more performance, only I can't justify the cost.

    Hope It helps, contact me for more help if needed.

    EDIT The 8350 has better overclock potential and with that cooler it should do the job.
