Once you are certain exactly which GPU suits you, come on back and we will build a system around that, according to your remaining budget. http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/pc/index?siteID=12... http://discussion.autodesk.com/forums/ (just some wise advice ... find out the best GPU from your applications developer/community, as a source, then build your system around that. ?? ) = Alvin = | Report abuse MadAdmiral March 19, 2010 12:29:42 PM Unfortunately, nVidia cards are generally much better for AutoCAD and workstations in general. They're even better with Batman. So you may just have to go with them. I would definitely double check with the exact program you use though... Here's what I would change: RAM: G.Skill Pi Series 3x2 GB 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 Faster RAM. PSU: Earthwatts 650W A much, much, much better PSU. HSF: Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus A much better cooler. GPU: GTX 260 (or whatever they recommend) | Report abuse xurwin March 19, 2010 12:39:33 PM 1+^ tnx mad admiral.. but RAM is much costly though. | Report abuse MadAdmiral March 19, 2010 12:43:08 PM The RAM is espensive, but for rendering you want fast sticks. You need to get CL sticks at least. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Specs for rendering?> Related ressources: ForumLaptop specs for 3d rendering ForumDesktop Specs for Video Rendering ForumPC Specs . for HD video editing - not just fast rendering .
