Because my machine is very out-of-date I need a new machine to do some heavyduty rendering in Blender.
This is what I would buy:
Win7 64b CPU: i7-2600K SSD: 2x 120 GB CSSD Corsair: These aren't bootable right ? HDD: Western Digital WD2500AAKX: Small disk as a bootable C:. (I use a NAS for storage).
PSU: Corsair CMPSU-800G (800W) RAM: Corsair DIMM 16 GB DDR3-1333 Quad-Kit: Is this overkill or not for a rendering system ? GPU: MSI N560GTX: Not a heavy GPU is needed but it's the smallest one they sell. I would have gotten a GTX460 but apparently they stopped selling it. MB: Z68: Need help choosing the right Motherboard. It needs SATAIII for the SSDs. I prefer it not to be Asus since I had a Deluxe board die on my some time ago. A friend had the same board he also had nothing but issues with Asus. So I'll probably go for an MSI board.
Any remarks or tips are welcome. Choosing the motherboard is the biggest problem.
