Hi I was given these minimum specs for a workstation:
Processor: 1 x Intel Quad-Core Xeon W3550 2.66 Ghz RAM: 1 x 4 GB Hard disks: 1 x SATA 250GB, SATA, 7.2k rpm 1 x SATA 1TB or 3TB for image storage Graphic card: 1 x NVIDIA FX380 Monitor: 1 or 2units 19" LCD monitor with 1280x1024 resolution. Optical drive: 1 x DVD RW Supermulti SATA Network interface: 1 x 1Gbps Mouse: USB Optical Scroll Mouse Keyboard: Standard Keyboard Operation system: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
I asked around at another forum and someone gave me this suggestion:
cpu, i7-2600k mobo, Asrock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 ram, 16gb 4x4 DDR3 1600cl9 GSkill RJX hdd, 1tb WDC Blue SATA3 odd, any DVDRW gpu, NVIDIA Quadro 2000 psu, Seasonic S12II-520w 80PLUS Bronze atx, Fractal Core 3000 mon, AOC 21.5" E2236VW LED full HD
Thoughts? All I need is the bare minimum of the first build. Thanks!

That second build is pretty great and it will outperform the first build easily. Budget makes a big difference.
Sorry! Budget is around USD1800. Thanks for the reply. Do I really need the second build? I'd settle for something lower. Like I said, the first build is enough but can I get something similar with newer hardware?
