    Thermaltake PSUs are *NOT* the most reliable. Get this instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151110

    And get this for your RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231559

    And then make sure you get an SSD for boot, something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820249025

    And you'll also need a cooler since the 3930K doesn't come with one, get this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608024

    Then for case you'll need something that supports XL-ATX if you're using that motherboard, try something like this; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146088
  2. Gigabyte UD5H Z77
    Intel Xeon E3-1230 (offers PCIe 3.0 and Hyperthreading) $250

    keep everything else
  3. You need a cooler for CPU. Suggest CoolerMaster Hyper 212EVO. You need low profile RAM (to avoid risk of clash with cooler) Crucial Ballistic Sport, GSKill Ares are suitable. Corsair also do low profile versions. As to case, so much is personal preference. As long as it's a good quality Mid-tower ATX case, it will do. CoolerMaster (not the cheap ones), Fractal Design Refine 4 is quiet, Antec and Corsair are pretty good. I like the Corsair Carbide 400R/500R, very nice, but not cheap. The best way with cases is pick a couple you like the look of, and we'll tell you if one is markedly better.
    You don't need anything like that power supply. I will check the power requirements, for that Quadro, but I EXPECT you need around 500 or 550w. The important thing is to get the best quality, you can afford. I will come back, to you, to confirm required wattage.

    Keep in mind that Xeon's can't be overclocked.

    The Hyper 212 Evo requires the socket LGA 2011 retention bracket before it can be used. The Noctua D14 that I linked to only includes parts for LGA 2011.

    Do not spend the money for the H100 - the fans included are of the cheap plastic variety, and the radiator included isn't the best quality. If you're going to do liquid cooling, use a real liquid loop or don't use one at all.
  7. yes thanks malbluff im cheking the cooler, for ram i think i go for GSKILL, i watched the corsair case it a good option looks good, i gonna follor your advice, i gonna check some case and i gonna post to have an opinion
    for the power supply gonna check also the requirements good point, i think the quadro's total board power is 142.6W
    well i'll keep posting
  8. With the Quadro at 143w, a 500w power supply will be more than adequate, in fact you could go a bit lower. Personally, I like to have a decent bit in hand, without going silly, and you will find there are several good quality offerings in the low/mid 500's, from Seasonic, XFX, Antec, BeQuiet, that may suit nicely. For your type of work, you need a good quality PSU. The Seasonic X series is probably the best, if a little pricey.
