Honestly I wouldn't recommend either of those CPU's. As well, are you looking for advice on a whole system? Or are you just doing an upgrade. It's hard to recommend a graphics card without the budget either. I could recommend a $5000 quadro card... but if your budget is only 1k... it's kind of pointless. m 0 l Siddeous August 25, 2011 9:49:48 PM Comes down to budget really. New build, upgrade? A good video card is always a must but when it comes to 3D content/creation your best bet would be to use either Nvidia's Quadro or ATI's/AMD's Firepro line for professional cards. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?

They mislead the regular "worker" who has no It knowledge. I do not recommend neither CPU too. I recommend the i5-2500k for you, regardless of budget. The graphics card is a bit more complicated without the budget. But don't get a Quadro please. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
