Hi , I am new on forums. I am computer engineering student looking to build a PC for about 1000$ to 2000$ (not too worried about budget) for mostly 3D rendering/design(3dx max, inventor, realflow) ,and a little gaming. I know how to build a desktop PC, but I would like to know more about server/workstation builds and how that will work.
Basic concept - Duel CPU LGA 1366 is better than one in overall? I am also unsure how server/workstation RAM works and how much RAM I would need, also type and specs for a video card. I also plan to overclock on air if temperature allows me. With a long lasting PC.
I am mainly looking at
“ASUS Rampage III Formula LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard”
“ASUS Z8NA-D6 (ASMB4-IKVM) Dual LGA 1366 Intel 5500 ATX Dual Intel Xeon 5500 and 5600 Series Server Motherboard”.
Intel Xeon E5620 Westmere 2.4GHz LGA 1366 80W Quad-Core Server Processor.
