Gaming and rendering

Hi. i have a question about rendering and gaming.
i just built my first rig.

i7 3770k
Nvidia gtx 690 (EVGA)
G.Skill 32gb @ 2133
Thermaltake Bigwater 850 GT

those are the basic components

now my question is, how can i make faster renders (autocad revit 2013)
when i ask how i mean what would be good numbers to overclock

  1. I thought nvidia new generation cards was not that good at compute performance...

    The way that you could upgrade your PC is get a quadro/firepro or a crossfire 7970.

    Next time you should ask us what you should get.

    can i fix that through OC or is that a hardware problem??
  3. Neither nvidia purposely crippled their gpu in computation [rendering] to force you to by a corporate card for rendering. ATI cards do very well in rendering hence the previous post about a 7970.
  4. Umm Not really, I think it's a mistake on picking the GPU... But try OCing.
  5. AFAIK the default revit renderer is cpu based so gpu is irrelevant. Ocing the cpu should give a boost. You can confirm it is cpu based by looking at gpu usage in something like afterburner. http://event.msi.com/vga/afterburner/download.htm

    BTW they are not crippled in opencl nor directx. Although radeons do tend to do well in more opencl benchmarks. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-660-geforce-gtx-650-benchmark,3297-20.html
  6. the thermaltake product is not a cooler it is a part of a water cooling loop for your first or second build i would not suggest it get something like a hyper 212+, nh-d14, or a h-100.
  7. ok, now i know that my 690 is not good for computing, i there any way to fix this by changing something in the software or is there something physical not letting me?
  8. Did you check if it was cpu or gpu based?

    check if what was cpu or gpu based??

    ohhh well, everyone tells me that revit uses a cpu based renderer...

    So why would gpu computing matter. Gpu performance is just for viewports. Overclock your cpu for better render times. If you need help with that, we are here to help.

    thanks dude :P

  15. so then does a i7-3770k work fine then? does it run the program well?
