So I am looking into building my second computer and have decided on some of these parts. the computer will be used for rendering, autoCAD, Revit, Sketchup, Photoshop, lots of file conversions and such... Also gaming of course.
I have read alot of reviews and it seems the ud3r has some issues with buzzing or some kind of noise. The p6x58d-e is nice but cant find a whole lot of info. The premium just seems like it might be overkill. But between the 3 is only a $63 difference (with bing)
PSU: I have decided on Corsair but cant decide if I should get a 650 or 750. What do you guys think. I might crossfire in the future when he cards come down in price.
Given your program usage, I'd rethink your card choice....ATI not often a choice of AutoDesk and Adobe users. ATI doesn't support CS5's features and ATI has always been a poor performer in 2D drafting. Drivers up thru 10.3 were particularly horrendus.
Hard Drives - Check out the performance charts and pick whatever 500 GB per platter drive performs best under your usage patterns. The 2 TB WD Black and XT from Seagate are good choice but at smaller capacities, you are limited to the Seagate 7200.12 or the Spinpoint F3. The 7200.12 excels in gaming, multimedia and pictures whereas the F3 wins at music and movie maker. See the comparisons here (copy past link in manually, link won't work in forum):
