I want to use these specs for motion graphics and visual effects and NOT gaming. Are these sufficient enough for my requirements? If not, tell me what i should upgrade.

8350 run amazing in 3dmax cinema 4d revit i got my self ... idk about the gtx 760 to be honest ..

i got this card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

its amazing in programs also it works great with games.


Seems like an awesome card, i only picked GTX 760 because it's new and has very good performance, especially in rendering

I like amd cards, as they generally offer superior openGL performance than the latest Nvidia cards (up to the gtx 770). However, they don't support CUDA which could be essential for Adobe apps.

I believe GTX 760 is officially supported on all of your softwares (use latest versions only if you want maximum compatibility / performance with latest cards).

For example - http://www.adobe.com/products/aftereffects/tech-specs.h...

"The following NVIDIA graphics cards are supported for GPU acceleration of the ray-traced 3D renderer. A broader selection of GPUs may be used for OpenGL acceleration features...."

Only Nvidia cards (and the 760 among them) support this feature, for example..

So overall the 760 seems like a good pick.

Regarding the cpu, it usually performs at 4770k performance levels in these apps, just keep in mind that it's much more power hungry and hotter than stock i7, so make sure to get a decent heat sink and a well ventilated chassis.

Alright, will 550 w or 450 w be enough PSU for it?

Taken from Tomshardware's system builder marathon 1000$ config, Q4 2012. Link:
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/build-a-pc-overcloc...

The system was configured with the FX 8350 and a GTX 670, which uses roughly the same power as the gtx 760.

After an overclock and an unrealistic load on the cpu and gpu simultaneously, peak power consumption was at ~480W.
However, keep in mind that in order to keep power consumption and heat in check, they actually managed to undervolt and overclock the cpu. Even after this, this cpu consumed a full 150W more than the i5 at full load.

This means that if you overclock and overvolt (if you lucky you might undervolt, but don't count on this), know that you should get a decent motherboard with great power circuitry, and a good heatsink.

Regarding the power supply, I would go for 600W made by a decent brand (Seasonic and Corsair would be my first pick) with a 80+ rating (I would go for 80+ gold or higher, but 80+ bronze / silver is still fine).

TL;DR
Get a 600W power supply with 80+ rating and don't cheap out on the motherboard, heatsink and chassis+fans.
550W power supply will probably still work but don't go crazy with your overclock (especially the voltage).

My motherboard can only OC to 4.2 Ghz, which is fast enough for me and is considerably fast anyway in my opinion. So it looks like i should only get a better motherboard if i want to OC higher than 4.2 Ghz?

Probably.. Just try not to raise voltage unless you absolutely have to and stress test the cpu for a while with something like prime95 + monitor for a while with CPUz to make sure that no cpu frequency / voltage throttling is taking effect. If it does feel free to PM me.

Hoped that helped :)
