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) Along with PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor (£246.94 @ Amazon UK) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 65.0 CFM CPU Cooler (£56.48 @ Ebuyer) Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard (£95.96 @ Amazon UK) Memory: Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (£54.19 @ Scan.co.uk) Storage: Hitachi Deskstar 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£51.59 @ Ebuyer) Storage: Intel 330 Series 240GB 2.5" Solid State Disk (£140.69 @ Scan.co.uk) Case: Antec Eleven Hundred ATX Full Tower Case (£86.98 @ Dabs) Power Supply: Antec High Current Gamer 520W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply (£55.82 @ Scan.co.uk) Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (64-bit) (£70.45 @ CCL Computers) Total: £859.10 (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)
