Hi, I am building a computer for the first time. I am in the architecture field and will use this computer mainly for 3DS MAX, Revit, CAD, and Adobe Editing Programs. My initial budget was $1,500 but since doing my research I have increased it to $2200. I will in future add more hard drives, blue ray burner, and additional graphics card.
I would love some feedback with the choices I have made so far. Any suggestion on how to cut down cost without cutting too much performance. Thank You.
I think an Intel i7 3770k would do the job pretty easy rather than the 3930 for about $200 less. although I do not know much about CAD programs. I built a system for a friend of mine and it seemed to work well in CAD programs when I had a very similar build to yours I used a Z77 motherboard and an i7 3770k.
I will also be doing a lot of 3D Max renderings which utilizes the computer cores. Hence why I chose to go with 6 cores instead of 4 cores. Perhaps someone might be able to suggest a cheaper mother board for the CPU i am going with.
One warning is you do not want a cheap part and an expensive part. and if you are going for cores you might want to check out the AMD FX 8350 it has 8 cores and runs at 4.2 GHz its a lot less expensive and all parts that go with it are also.
