Hi guys, just wondering what hardware is recommended for autodesk maya, for an over the top rig and a budget rig of $1000. Does SLI help adobe programs and maya? I'm not really going to build it just wondering.

Xeon build do have HT + 8 Treads. 1150 do not. Xeon you can not OC 4670k you can.
Performance is about the same. Xeon useses less wattage and gives same performance for less.
Xeon is cooler. It do not have iGPU but that you will not need. You have video card.
This is maybe best video where you find out how xeon works.
