Building 3D Architect PC

Hello,

I'm currentlybuilding a PC to créate 3d models and rendering (hyper realism) views,
the softwares i want to use are:

Autocad 2017 (and also 3D)
Lumion 6.0
Sketchup 2017
3D studio (the latest too)

i understand that quadro GPU are better for design softwares, but there's only 1 and old model avaible in my nearest store, and i need to buy the pc as soon as posible, so i can't wait 2 weeks for delivery from internet shopping.

so i would apreciate if someone could recomend all te components that i need to have a perfect performance with speed and compatibility between all of them taking in count that i need to buy a:

1. asus nvidia gtx 1060 (6gb of memory)
2. i7-6700k (this is not for gaming but for work, so i need 4.0ghz + 8 cores)
3.  Samsung 850 PRO 550mb Reading and 520 writting
4. need 16ram ddr5

im looking for ASUS Brand, i think its the best quality
i am open to better sujections

thanks in advance

  1. 1. asus nvidia gtx 1060 (6gb of memory) - OK (GTX 1070, 1080 are high-end options)
    2. i7-6700k (this is not for gaming but for work, so i need 4.0ghz + 8 cores) - Good
    3. Samsung 850 PRO 550mb Reading and 520 writting - Good
    4. need 16ram ddr5 - DDR5 is not compatible with i7-6700K, take DDR4 with low latency as possible

    what about a good mobo with 4 ram slots and perfect for all this septup
    and wich might be the perfect power supply?

    im sorry im just really bad at this, and i want to pick the best that can work together

    If you want 16GB RAM, take 4*4GB identical RAMS (should be exactly identical), have quad channel configuration with i7-6700K
    PSU - I would recommend Corsair 550Watt

    Skylake does not operate in quad channel. There is no reason to buy 4x4gb of ram.

    Get 2 8gb dimms to leave 2 slots open in case you want to upgrade in the future.
  6. See if Ryzen 1800X CPU if you are OK with AMD
  7. The build above is not good for what you need.

    There are Quadro GPUs that will fit in your budget that will properly accelerate the software you want.

    This would be infinietly better at 3D rendering than the setup you have. 8 core 16 thread CPU, Quadro GPU. And if you decide to go to 32GB of ram you can just add more.

    Question from kyrios : "Help checking components efficiency"

    kyrios said:
    Hello,

    i managed to build a select components for a pc with all my knowledge... yet i feel like some parts are more powerfull that i need.

    so i will apreciate if someone could check my build, and tell me what i can change to make things better, i want power but everything working together perfectly without bottleneck or etc

    this is my list:
    https://pcpartpicker.com/list/p6DWwV

    i need that i7-6700
    and 16 ram dd4

    this is for 3d modeling and hyper realistic design, and autocad, we have no quadro in my nearest store so i wont bother looking for those

    thanks in advance
  9. Best answer
    See the build I posted above you. That GTX 1060 GPU is useless for 3D modeling, none of the software you want to use is accelerated for it.

    While you can't get a Quadro at your nearest store then if you are serious about it you need to find an online retailer you can get it at, otherwise you are wasting time and money. Where are you located?

    I you are insistent on your build above there are some changes you need to make. First 4x4gb is useless to you, that CPU is NOT quad channel despite the malarkey that the other poster told you above thats wrong. Secondly the PSU you picked is garbage. Here is a better version

    HOWEVER

    The build I put together for you above would blow this build away for 3D modeling and do it cheaper.

    No problem. Are you going to go with the AMD Ryzen build I suggested a couple posts up?

    ill go for the gtx1060 combo, since the mobo got 2 pci xpress, i might be able to order a quadro later and add it to the build... since ill be using lumion wich renders in real time like video games so they kinda work the same.

    i wanted to make one last question... the memory ram Brand you sent me, is not avaibeable, but there's Kingston HyperX Savage Black 8GB DDR4 SDRAM PC4-24000 (3000MHz) which i presume is a Little better, what do you think? or should i stick with the 2666?

    there's not the psu you said, but they have  Thermaltake ToughPower 550W GOLD, might be good too right?

    Ok Lumion will work with a GTX card.

    That memory would be fine. I would get 3000mhz.

    That Thermaltake PSU is junk. Do they sell Seasonic? Superflower? Corsair?

    they have corsair, and this one Corsair CS Series CS650M plus gold is the closest one to 550w, the rest are 500w and under or higher than 600w

    no, they only have Corsair CX750M, here's a list with all the corsair avaibeable in the store http://www.yoytec.com/index.php?cPath=26_67&sort=&filter_id=173
  17. Ok, get that. Its overkill but thats the cheapest thing I would buy there in terms of stuff thats in stock.

    the CX450M is enough for you if they get that in stock, I see it there.

    by the way, is there going to be a huge diference if i go for gtx1070 or gtx1080 instead of the gtx1060 with my build?

    I would not. If you plan to save up for a Quadro card and you are not gaming. Don't waste the money.

    ok i swear to god this is the last question > _ <

    Cooler Master Seidon 120V or Cooler Master Hyper 612 V2

    people say that seidon is noiser tan hyper 612, but the income from seidon is much greater tan cuz of wáter cooling, but i dont know really, wind cooling is good, but keeping the inside as cool as posible in a Workstation gotta be better, and even more because of the space that it covers compared to the hyper 612
  23. Youre not overclocking Water cooling is a waste of money, and yeah its louder too. Also if you're overclocking watercooling with a 120 radiator is no better than a good air cooler.
