Havn't built a computer for many years, still running xp with a p4. Have been wanting to bring work home with me for awhile and finally have decided to build a new rig. The only real taxing thing i plan on using it for is 3d rendering programs. I havnt gamed for a long time but want to keep it somewhat up to date in case i decide to again.


Approximate Purchase Date: (one or two weeks from today)

Budget Range: (1500-2000) Before Rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: (3d rendering (Daz,autocad) surfing, and some gaming(havnt gamed in awhile be Diablo 3 is tempting me)

Parts Not Required: (keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers,)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: (newegg.com, amazon, anyother that is reliable)

Country: (United States, Ohio)

Parts Preferences: No real preference, has to be quality

Overclocking: must likely not

SLI or Crossfire: doubtful

Monitor Resolution: (1920x1080)

Additional Comments: (I would like a quiet PC, It may seem weird but the case needs to have only blue LEDs on it. Everything else i have is decked out with blue and it would just be wrong to have a different color on the case.)

Ok, so I have continued shopping, here is my wishlist from newegg i hope
http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx...

I think i have everything but a Motherboard, quite frankly i get lost trying to decide. way to many of them. It seems like assus or azrock are high quality and often recommended here. Anysuggestions for the setup i have now would be gratefully accepted. all this shoping has really given me the bug to buy. I seen the gpu i sele cted recomended in several threads, is my psu big enough to handle it? will the case have enough air flow to cool it? and do i need a cpu cooler? and if so what kind would fit/be best.

This board was recomended by several people, seems to have alot of bells and whistles:

ASUS P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Still looking for info on cpu coolers and if i should buy extra case fans. Several of the items i have selected are combo deals, but i plan on running everthing through pcpartpicker to see if i can save some money and maybe get a new monitor or upgrade something else on my system. Heading off to bed for now, looking forward to any suggestions in the morning.

I still need a GPU looking strongly at the GTX 670, but they seem to be selling out fast. Any thoughts on the gpu or build in general, ways to save cash would be greatly appreicated.

You want 2x8GB of RAM so you have an upgrade path to add another set for a total of 32GB. Also any CM cpu like that CM EVO comes with a small tube of MX-4 thermal compound so take the arctic silver off that list.
