Which is better for 3d modeling, rendering and 2d drafting ?

Hello
My Name is Zaid,


I'm an Architect and an interior designer , I'm building a new desktop but i don't know which is better for 3ds max and 3d modeling "rendering"

1st choice is :

CPU:
Xeon E3 2609 v3 (1.9GHz, 6 Cores , 15Mb Cach L3 , 6 Threads)

Motherboard
MSI X99 Raider

Ram:
1*16 GB G.skill DDR4 -2400

Gpu :
MSI GTX 970 4G

HDD:
WesternDigital 1TB

SSD:
A-Data 240GB


2nd Choice :

CPU :
I7 6700K (4GHz, 4 Cores , 8MB Cach , 8 Threads)

Motherboard:
MSI Z170 KRAIT GAMING 3X

RAM:
2*16 GB G.SKILL DDR4-2400

GPU:
MSI GTX1070

HDD:
WesternDigital 1TB

SSD:
Silicon Power m2 240GB

I really will appreciate it if you tell which parts is better for me and why ? I know I'm asking a lot but I need help and I'm feeling lost.

and feel free if you have any tips for me.

Thank you a lot

  1. Rendering is a heavily multithreaded thing,more cores is better.Plus you get to upgrade to even more ridiculous cpu 14 cores and more next time.with skylake,you are kinda stuck .Furthermore,one mistake i have spotted.Its better to get a quadro for what you are doing,and try to get ecc ram (might need a ws board though,not sure)The ecc will correct errors during the process of rendering which might be vital to you

    Thank You sir , that's help me a lot.
    but about the cpu the Xeon has 6 threads , and I7 is 8 threads ,do you mean that's doesn't matter what is matter how much cores the cpu has.

    *** Where I live they don't sell the new hardwares and we don't have much various options , I wish If i could get a Quadro

    abot the Ram , I will check if we have it here , this is really a new thing I didn't know anything about it .

    thank you so much
  3. the xeon has more cache (15mb)which means if you are dealing with repetitively textures,the cpu can keep more in cache and not need to recalculate again.Thread are like just scheduling your day to make more use out of it,cores are still better.I assume your are buying prebuilt?.If possible find another cpu that supports hyperthreading and it will be good.

    I am 3d designer and you do not need this much rams. I am working on 6 gb of rams and it is pretty much all you need. Lets say take 8 gb to be sure but all over 16GB is too much.
    For rendering yes you should take as much cores as you need. So i would recommend lower rms and take better cpu

    thank you sir,

    but the only cpu we have now is xeon e5 2609 v3 , and thank you for helping me about understanding the rams and cores , and for picking a pc within my budget.

    I will check the website .

    thank you so much
