I am looking to build a machine to do some art work on. I mostly use zbrush, Modo, Lightwave, XSI, Photoshop and After Effects (www.sudac.tv to see samples). I would like to spend around $1500.00 – 2000.00 (USA)


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Here is what I got so far:
mobo (2011 Socket) $270

RAM (Corsair 16GB RAM 4x4) $160

I doubt you need a 3GB card, and the TX580 is overkill.

Other than that your links are all broken :)
