Is the case an absolute must? could easily get an excellent case for $80 - $130 and put the extra towards a 570.

Well if i was you i'd try and find a case for a little cheaper and invest the extra $$ you saved into a better Gpu. Whats your budget anyway?

It is $1665 before shipping atm for him. You could use the remaining $ to upgrade GPU to 7870.

Whoa there guys. You really need to ask about what program is being used and then discover why it's being used... is this casual rendering or work related?

Will the program benefit from CUDA?

What is the monitor resolution?

Rendering can mean many things. Some of those benefit from a strong GPU and some not. Hyperthreading can make a big difference in some applications also, so a 2600K might very well be needed if time is money.

hes absolutely right, it depends on what you are doing. the adobe package uses cuda and many people use after effects for CG...

Holy. You do not need a 370$. Get a 200$ mobo, like mine, and grab a bigger SSD. I agree, you may want to move up to a 2600k, as well as a 680.. :D

The renderings will be Youtube for videos then 3D rendering will be for Architecture University.

The resolution for my monitor is 1920 x 1080.

Handbrake? Something else?

CAD for school? I would be considering a 2600K I think. As I said, you need to be specific about programs, because the way they use the CPU varies.

AutoCad 2012

V-Ray

Sony Vegas 9

Also are their any good black and red 1155 motherboards around $200? :)

AutoCAD will not use multiple cores much, but V-ray is multithreaded and Sony Vegas is heavily multi-threaded, showing big gains between i5 and i7.

I leave it up to you of course, but suggest you need an i7 2600K at least. Or perhaps wait a bit for Ivy Bridge.

2600k best all around for the price. if time is a priority go with 3930k and never look back...it saves around 15-30 secs on some application but that adds up quick if you render on a daily basis.
