hello everyone , i will b building a workstation soon enough in next few months .
I have read and seen many threads and seen many builds and unboxing as recommended but still cant decide upon which parts r good enough, the workstation parts- the ecc memory,the xeons,quadros etc(which r expensive) or the mix up of consumer boards and processor along with a quadro or just a gaming card ,
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT gaming,watching movies,videoediting,animation,3ddesigning)
CHASIS: coolermaster,antec,nzxt or thermaltake.(already shortlisted them)
Monitor:will keep it seprate out of the systems budget
24" hdmi true colors for video editing,desiging etc.
Newegg only used for as reference to the products
Better components suggestions r welcome apart from these .
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:experienced builders and users help required.
plz do shed some light upon the choices, would i b able to have a good worstaion in this budget ?
and would a branded pc give me more value for money and better performing parts then a custom build?
or should i go for a high end gaming pc with and just replace the geforce card with a Quadro ?
plz do reply
Any sort of help is appreciated.
thank you and i do apologize for any kind of mistakes .
and plz feel free to suggest or recommend parts that u think would b the best,a bang for the buck
Wouldn't like to go wrong with my build .Building an expensive system for the first time.
if its confusing thread then ill make it simple
a workstation (with ecc ram ,dual socket mobo,dual xeons,quadroand an ips monitor)
is a good enough system possible in this budget excluding the monitor.
a high end gaming rig with ecc ram and a quadro
with only a quadro to change in the gaming rig
Use the other 700 as you wish. I would probably say get another f3 spinpoint since they're so cheap, and sink the rest into a monitor. Maybe even consider SLI. Or, maybe, for once, be responsible and save the extra cash .
than you very much at last some one responded
but should i get a quadro fx 1800 in place of an 470 .
but idk how much of a performance diff boost would i get to c from a mid range quadro to a high end gaming card.
i would b using it for modeling,texturing ,lightign and annd some adobe applications as well
i was doing some xeon workstation setup research it turns out it is possible but not that great as the xeons would be 3 series and i would require a hell lot of coolin and fans etc for the rig as it would get a lot hotter . so going out of budget there
but np some one else might have a xeon workstation build suggestion hoping to c replies on that.
thak you both neo and weilander you really know your combos
cases that i would go for would go would b a haf-x/haf932/antec twelve hundred or any other with good looks and cooling lol
i have some ques plz what would i get extra if i go for the asus extreme rampage or a gigabyte ud5 or ud7??
and also i read long back smthng about the xfx supplies as they r not reliable etc cant rember exactly but they had faults what u guyz say
other wise i can go fo rcorsair or coolermaster or thermaltake ?
and i would b using my workstation for modelin,texturing,lighting and also and some graphic and logo designing work too
i am already doing architectural visualizations in a company as a fresher and have designed logos and other motion graphics some some of my clients too
