Q6600 2.4 Ghz
Vista 64-bit Home Premium
1TB RAM Western Digital Sata
What I want to do is improve performance for programs such as Zbrush and 3d Coat.
So I thought I would upgrade my GPU and my harddrive.
These are the items I am considering upgrading to.
GTX295 1.7GB (on each GPU so it's really half) or
GTX275 1.7GB (single board so it's all 'real')
SDD G.Skill Falcon 128GB <-- for OS install and swap file
Do you identify any bottlenecks here? Also, I'm not sure whether a sculpting program will see benefits from a multi-GPU such as GTX295, and I'm also not sure how much a sculpting program can actually use the 2GB memory on the GTX275 I have listed. What do you suggest I do to upgrade. Can an I7 processor work on the same mother board as my Q6600?
