Hi, I've previously built some PC's for gaming, but I guess, for 3D modeling and rendering it is a whole different story. Can I hear some advice from you guys? What should I put more attention to, hardware-wise? Any input you can give me, will be highly appreciated.

Following the advice from shortstuff:

Approximate Purchase Date: Late December 2014 or Early January 2015

Budget Range: 2000 - 2300 $

System Usage from Most to Least Important: 3D Modeling and Rendering, Video Rendering.

Are you buying a monitor: Yes

Parts to Upgrade: This is a new PC, so I'm building it from scratch

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: , but I'm open to other sites too

Location: Panama City, Panama , but I can ship parts from the USA

Parts Preferences: No preferences

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe (Will it help for my purpose?)

go with xeon (10 cores and above ) instead i7
go for quadro or tesla graphics
invest in RAMs

3D modeling and rendering uses CPU resources almost upto 100%. For these tasks you would need minimum Intel i7 or Xeon CPU. What is your budget or current specs? Are you into building a whole new PC or upgrading?

If you really aren't building until around the first of the year then I would come back and ask for build advice then. Technology moves too fast to plan a build that far in advance. What I recommend today will most likely change by December/January.
