Solved AE C4D workstation Tags: CPUs Workstations Product Last response: July 7, 2012 2:40 AM in CPUs Share facette June 26, 2012 7:52:16 PM Veteran motion graphics artist, über-rookie pc builder, seriously thinking of jumping in the Mac-deserters bandwagon and while at it why not build my own custom workstation... I'll mainly be using the most recent versions of After Effects and Cinema 4D for 2D/3D animation, no video editing, no gaming. Basically looking for the ultimate rendering speed/price ratio. Here's my first attempt at parts picking, please feel free to point at any incompatibilities, obsolescences, plain absurdities or maybe apply a validation stamp. Thanks for your input.

Share facette June 27, 2012 2:06:47 PM Thanks popatim, seems like I did my homeworks right. I was also wondering if the total noob I am could handle overclocking without risking to fry up his investment and would I get a significant speed gain? m 0 l Related resources Need help with PC for VFX/3D work (Maya, Nuke, AE, C4D, Photoshop...) - Forum A Build for AE and C4D - Forum New system mainly used for AE, C4D and Prem - Opinions and advice - Forum Entry level Workstation for Adobe AE, Premiere, Maya, 3dsMax - Forum Can't find your answer ?
