I need to have a computer built in less than a month, budget around 2500$.

I will be running it for graphic rendering on programs like AutoCAD, Revit, Rhino, and photoshop.

I will need :

Multi-Core Intel Xeon, or i-Series processor or AMD equivalent with SSE2 technology. Highest
affordable CPU speed rating recommended.

16G of Ram minimum but hopefully be able to get 32g

5 GB free disk space, 7,200 RPM, 10,000+ RPM for Cloud interactions-- but i guess get an extra solid state won't hurt

DirectX 10 capable graphics card with Shader Model 3 (not sure what that means)

So Pleasssse help me i'm dumb... :c

just like you were able to get here - use a search engine and search for 'custom pc builder' then make enquiry contact re your requirements. Give movey and they will build.
.....We're guessing you are not able to build one yourself?

wow~ thank you so much for all the information~! this is really great~ :) 
But I was kinda debating on if I should get the i7 2600k instead the 3770k cuz im not sure about the overheating issue. Would the set up still work with a 2600k or an xeon thingy?

it will work with a 2600K but not a xeon, sorry.
just to let you know the ivy bridge i7 3770K does get hot when you up the voltage to overclock past a certain point but there is no heat problem with a good moderate overclock.

and also the biggest performance difference with the ivy bridge is rendering; you need to overclock a sandy bridge higher than you would a ivy. however if you want to save $45 and are ok with a bit more of an overclock than a i7 2600K is fine.

i'm actually not quite sure what exactly is overclocking and how to do it yet :p  but I'll be google-ing and stuff on that stat... anyway, so basically the 3770k will not be overheating if i just leave it alone-ish? what's the "certain point"..?

no offense, while there is nothing wrong with the sabertooth motherboard, it is really just an over priced motherboard that is marketed to gamers.

there are more features on the -v pro board; like dvi-i and d-sub out, wireless and a few more usb3 ports.

maybe compare them yourself
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8Z7...
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/SABE...

if you really want the sabertooth, please don't buy into that TUF marketing crap, then cool it isn't going to hurt anything but your wallet in the long run.

lol the tough thing was why i picked it, never built a computer before, i dont wanna break it on the first try lol

mmm, well i'm going to get the Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler instead the H80 but the NH-14 needs more room, the ram sticks are too close with it on the P8z77 or would it not be a problem?

i just checked and the clearance for under the fan of the noturna dh-d14 is 44mm
http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=productview&products...
(the lower left corner of the info sheet .pdf file that is linked)
and the height of the ripjaw X series is 40 mm.
http://gskill.us/forum/showthread.php?t=7327
so it will fit with a little room to spare.
