I am going to buy a new system in few days.


The main purposes are as following in descending order :

3d Animation in Maya & 3dsMAx , Playing latest Games , Photoshop and some other editing , Browsing or surfing


Configuration :

CPU : Core i7 860 2.80Ghz


Motherboard : Gigabyte P55 UD4P /P55 Asus 1156 Extreme
(whichever is better ???)

Memory : Corsair 4GB DDR3 1600MHz C9 Titanium

Casing : Cooler Master Elite 334

HD : Samsung spinpoint 1TB

Power supply : Corsair 600W AA

GPU : Radeon HD 5750 1 gb @ $155

(If any other better graphic cards in $120 - $150 price range for Animation & Gaming plz suggest)

Or should i go with the Quadro series But i think its very expensive.??

Other suggestions for motherboard or other parts are welcome

You already have a 5750? or thats what your thinking of getting? If youve already got one, get another a go CF, if not get a 5770 for around that price.
As for workstation gfx, while they may give you a small noticable difference in workstation like applications, they wont do to well at all playing the latest games.

I am not planning to crossfire now But may be after a couple of years when new games come in market .....

No, you would not want to run Crossfire on the UD3 since it runs its second PCI-E 16x slot at 4x speed.

Yea, but the second card will only run at a woeful x4 speed, rather then 8x speed on slightly more expensive mobos

Is crossfire important to you though? With even a 5870, going from a 8x speed to 4x speed, youll notice around half the performance on 4x compared to 8x... you can find out more on the p55 scaling article

In that article, look at the benchmarks for more info comparing 16x/8x/4x speeds to one another

ASrock p55 Extreme. I own this motherboard. It is easy to OC, great layout, 6USB ports at the back, E-Sata. It is a great motherboard, you can get one for 140 on newegg.com

This would be also not a bad choice!

If you want more future proofing with USB 3.0, but the price to pay is that the second PCI E port will go at a slow 4X speed which is not optimal for CFX.

I would change the RAM because you can get a very highly rated set at a much better price, here is an example, the GSkill Ripjaws 1600mhz at 8-7-8-7 latency which is very good for the frequency.

Happy shopping!
