Hi,

I have a budget of about £1000 to spend on a new desktop pc, and am looking for the best spec for 3d max and sketchup modelling/rendering,

whether it be intel or amd, graphics card type, ram and hard drive space,

need a fast pc to complete 3d visuals, and quick render times,

can anyone suggest a good spec for the price range suggested,

thank you for your help,

Hey. For fast rendering, you'll need a highly overclocked i7, together with a nice case and cooler. For quicker program and projects response, you'll need a fast SSD. For smooth experience, you'll need a workstation class card.

This is my suggestion:

Quadro 600 (http://www.amazon.co.uk/PNY-nVidia-Quadro-Graphics-Card/dp/B0049TWCTU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1352222809&sr=8-1)
