I have been snooping around this and other forums for quite a while trying to learn as much as I can, but need some professional help putting this computer together. This will be my first computer build. I have tinkered, and done upgrades ect on current system, but project keep getting bigger, and it about freezes on the screen when making movies.
I do 3D Cad design work, Direct X, and Auto Cad. Also make motion movies of these 3D designs. This is quite similar to 3d gaming design in many ways. I currently am using 2 monitors, but would like to have 3. My stuff approaches some high end gaming as far as size.
Looking for a budget around 2K or less, or more if needed. Not looking to impress others, just want the best and fastest for my own good.
My advice is to buy 2 X 8 gb RAM. Because if you have 4X4GB ram you don't have the posibility to upgrade the memory because all the slots will be ocupied , maybe you will need more. The programs with what you work need a lot of memory and use a lot of memory.
That 590 will fit with your build and power supply.
If you are going to be doing a lot of 3D work and not any gaming, get a Quadro card. Quadro cards are professional GPUs that are optimized for professional 3D applications whereas consumer cards, like the GTX 590, is geared towards gaming. In the 3D modeling world, a $300 Quadro card will run circles around a $750 consumer card.
As far as cost, the Quadro 2000 is about $300.00 cheaper
the 4000 is the same price.
Looking at the specs the fx4800 comes closest to the 590 and it is over $1,100.
Also wanting to run triple monitors.
well my and my friends are building something similar, but instead of quadro cards, were using 6990 quad xfire, and 16gb ram on an i7 2600K, since he likes to load stuff on 3d, music, autocad and while waiting play some nice games with good graphics and of course on decent fps, but if your geared to 590 go get it, it's also worth it if you also want to game on the pc while doing nothing, and imo it's plenty good although some quadro cards would run circles on it while the 590 would wipe the floor with a quadro if you play games, but anyways go 590 or 2 of them if you can afford with 16gb of ram if you do heavy applications, or games at the same time with heavy applications,
