Building a new pc for 3d modeling/animation Tags: New Build Nvidia Systems Last response: March 24, 2009 7:15 PM in Systems Share ryangraziano March 24, 2009 2:06:44 PM I was wondering if you guys and girls could tell me if this sounds like an adequate system im not looking to spend more than 600 dollars and so far that seems realistic. Here are the parts im looking at now. MOBO EVGA 123-YW-E175-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard or EVGA 132-YW-E178-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI FTW ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail 8 Phase power design, 100% solid state capacitors, 3-Way SLI Either a nvidia 9500 because then i can get two and sli it or a really good evga 9800gtx corsair xms ram for whichever board i get and an intel core 2 quad 2.66ghz processor. and a diet soda. any suggestions are welcome please i havent built a pc in years and i need this for creating a new portfolio. my old system was an mobo - asus a7v880 video card - nvidia 6600gt 512mb agp 8x cpu - amd athlon xp 3200 2.2ghz ram - 1gb pc 5300 corsair xms case - asus vento 3600 which spontaneously decided that it did not want to power up and then decided the ide ports didnt work anymore so yea time to upgrade.

A single 9500 will be fine , or if you game definitely the 9800gtx and not two 9500's. A quadcore is a good idea . Check on newegg for cpu/mb combo deals . Ideally the later 45 nm intel cpu and not an 6xxx series . The nVidia chipsets arent well respected by performance freaks [ unless they went SLI ] so a board based on an intel P43 or P45 is a better choice Can't find your answer ? Ask !
