Hello, I'm building a new workstation for CFD simulation, unfortunately only have $2600 budget. Here is what come to my mind. Price from Newegg. CPU: 2*Intel Xeon E5645 $1126; RAM: WINTEC 32GB Sever Memory kit $290; Motherboard: Supermicro MDB-X8DT6-O $410; PSU: Coolermaster RS800 800W $150; Heatsink: 2*coolermaster V8 $118; GPU: PNY Quadro 600 $150; Hard Disk: WD Caviar Black 1TB $135; Case: LIAN LI PC-A71F $240 Total: 2616
I've try my best to balance the performance and price... But still swing between Dual Xeon E5645 and E5-1660, almost same price, 1660 have higher clock frequency but Dual E5645 have more cores....
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
