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
I look forward to your help.

I can't seem to edit the message, I wanted to say the budget is £700-900/€1000... forgot to put it in
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
Is there any more info I can add to get a bit more help here?
