Am a VFX artist my main usage would be on aftereffects and some amount of 3dsmax and photoshop with sometimes on adobe premiere,but most of the time i would be working on after effects.I have done some R&D regarding the system.I would be working on HD resolution.
But i have read somewhere that instead of a highend GPU invest in i7 extreme and just take a basic GPU.But can i do that coz can't invest too much on both.
Memory -8Gb kingston
power -cooler master 600w
HD - Seagate Barracuda 1TB or samsung?I have never used a samsung HD Before
OS -Windws Xp 64 bit
Parts not required are monitor,mouse and keyboard
Dual Intel Xeon E5506 Nehalem-EP 2.13GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 4MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 80W Quad-Core Server Processors with ASUS Z8NA-D6 which supports Dual Socket 1366 Motherboard.The rest of the configurations stays the same as above.But would this be faster than the above and stable?
Welcome to the forum. There's a Build Advice form in my signature which you may want to fill out, as well. But from the looks of things, I think you would be fine with a single i7 930 overclocked, with good cooling, 12GB of RAM, and maybe a 260.
