    lazybluefox,

    You may well be blue and a fox, but anyone regularly using Autocad, Revit, Photoshop, Sketchup, vray, and 3d Max rendering can't also be lazy!

    In my view, the most demanding applications determine the performance requirements of the system and in this example, it would be 3ds Max and Revit. these applications also need workstation graphics cards to run the viewports properly. Gaming cards use drivers intended for high frame rates rather than image quality.

    In my opinion, the best system would use a 6 or 8 core LGA2011 Xeon of a good clock speed. The high core count is to speed the CPU aspects of rendering. However, a 6-core Xeon over 3GHz is quite expensive so I would suggest >

    TOTAL = $1,107

    I see that 80,000 INR is about $1300, but I know that prices are less in the US, so I am hoping this system is possible for your budget. If it is too expesive, it may have 8Gb of RAM, a WD Blue 1TB drive - about $60 US, and a less expensive case.

    The idea is that this system would benefit from the high memory bandwidth, extra PCIe lanes of LGA2011 and the 3.7-3.9GHz of the E5-1620. In the future, the E5-1620 may be swapped for 6, 8, 10-core CPU's- which is not possible with LGA1150 limited to 4 cores, and the Firepro could become a Kepler series Quadro like the K2000 or K4000, and an SSD added for the programs and applications.

    I use an E5-1620 (Version 1) system with in fact all the applications you mention and it is very good in this work, or as we say in Los Angeles > 'bahoot acha".
