PC for graphics and 3D modelling

Hello @ll,


I would like to build a cumputer system that can manage large graphics, CAD and 3D modelling.


I'm a beginner and don't have that much money, so would like to start with some middle class thing that can handle large work loads. I'll get two screens for the system.


I'm building my own PC for that and would like to ask if anyone can look at these components and see, if they're compatible or if maybe one slows the other down a lot.


I would very much like to hear your opinion and feedback.



Thanks a lot!!


Laura

question: I am not familiar with the quadro family, except what I've read over the internet.

How can a 256mb 256bit Quadro card compete with a .. lets say GTX 570 (1.25 gb ram, 380bit) ? Are they different ?

From what I can see the Quadro are very expensive for "limited technical details" ( Maybe i am wrong as i do not know enough details)
