Machine to do 3D modeling/animation

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.

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

    Other than that your links are all broken :)
