Hi all

I desperately need a new computer, mine is seriously dated and I am a 3D architectural visualiser and would like to work from home sometimes. I realise my budget isn't at the high end, so it's important I balance the costs with spending the most on the most vital components, I'm am a bit dumb as far as computer spec goes so hoping you kind folk can help me. If anyone knows of a good place to order for Germany that would be very helpful too.

Budget Range: 700-1000

System Usage from Most to Least Important: 3D Modelling/rendering using mainly 3D Studio Max, zbrush, photoshop

Parts Not Required: Harddrives

Country: Germany or possibly in the UK

Overclocking: Maybe

I look forward to your help.

Can you post a website you are looking to buy from? Not familiar with European sites

I'd need a new motherboard too though, the current one I have is an Asus P5Q SE2. Presumably the motherboard I have need a certain kind of ram too. Also does anyone know of a graphic card to go for for my needs?

Will you be playing games on this PC ?

What sort of rendering do you do with Max (scanline: the default renderer, Mental Ray, iRay, VRay etc. )

Do you need to include OS in the price ?

No games. Vray for rendering and no OS needed.

I have a case which is quite large, I guess it's dependant on the motherboard whether I need to replace it. I also have a DVD rom and harddrives.

I'd also probably need a PSU, mine is only 450w
