I'm looking at a new build for my final year of architecture school. I've been working off of an asus laptop and it's time for an upgrade. I want to go the microATX route because I have to ship my computer to Houston from New York when I go back to school and then ship it back when I graduate.
I looked up some parts that are listed below, any advice and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: March 2013
Budget Range: (e.g.: 300-400) 1500-2000
System Usage from Most to Least Important: CAD work (I use a lot of Rhinoceros, CAD, 3DSMax, and photoshop/illustrator/indesign), Rendering, gaming
Are you buying a monitor: Yes (going to exchange my credit card points for a 27", most likely running it at 1080p)
Do you need to buy OS: No
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg
Location: New York City
Parts Preferences: no preference
SLI or Crossfire: Not at the moment (I've read alot that SLI doesn't really improve performance for the programs I'm using, if I add a card it would probably for gaming. I would like the option to do so in the future but it is not a requirement)
Your Monitor Resolution: 2 monitors at 1920x1080
I have attached a build that I went through below:
