The last computer  I built was in late 1999/2000 era -  Ancient technology by now.

 

I've not kept up with all of the new advances in this areas and I need to build a new computer

 

that has:  Maximum Ram & Cpu Speed for 3D rendering(s) .  I have no idea what  type of Graphix card would match this system

 

Any ideas will be greatlly appreciated.      

 

I would probably purchase 4 x 2 terabyte hard drives for raid storage

 

I always tend to use dual monitors and I much perfer building two of these units so I can switch between them when one is busy.

 

Thanks in advance for any assistance and advice

:welcome:  Majik_Imaje.

If you answer some question please, it will help us configure the appropriate build for you.

 

What software will you use?

What is your budget for one build?

In which country will you purchase parts?

Will that be RAID-10 for storage?

What are the brands/models of your monitors?

Which software ??   =  3D Studio Max  &  Maya -  Z brush  etc.

 

My budget ?   = What ever it takes

 

Which country ?? -   USA

 

Yes  on  RAID  10

 

Brands of monitors = ViewSonic

 

I need a motherboard that can support 32 gig or more if possible

 

Realize this that in less than 5 years time most of the componets will be outdated!   (again).

 

For what it is worth (nothing)  I live in the upper regions of Alaska's Arctic @ the Top of the World!

 

Thank you very much for avoiding to answer a simple question;

 

what type monitors ???  what county to purchase parts =???

 

What  planet do you reside on ???  So much for getting any decent help here...!!

Not one of these stupid questions are pertinent  to the issue @ hand!

well yes they are pertinent to your query because then he can source the parts from a site that is available to you, and there's no point in suggesting a build that is going to cost $3000+ if you can only afford to spend $1000 or less, some drives do not work well in raid, etc etc.

 

i doubt you'll be getting any further assistance from the helpers here because of your attitude, how old are you anyway? a spoilt 10yr old by the sounds of it but i will tell you the system i'd be looking to build for professional 3d rendering would be an intel socket 2011 system with a 12 core xeon cpu, 64gb+ of ddr4 ram, ssd drive, and nvidia quadro k6000x2 graphics card.

:rofl:

 

not playing you for anything, and nobody thought you were stupid, that's just his standard first post to get as much info as possible, then he uses his excellent technical knowledge to go out of his way to find and list the best possible devices at the best price from sites he knows are in your region.

 

eg.

for usa he might list this :- http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819116901

for the uk he'd list this :- http://www.dabs.com/...ocked-8NG1.html

same part but he'd make sure it was linked to a site best suited to your location.

 

don't forget these are people who give up their free time for no compensation whatever, except for the fact it pleases them to help other people whenever they can.

 

so a bit of graciousness and answering a few simple questions is nothing much to ask for the knowledge and guidance you'd get back free of charge, is it really?  ;)

Hi Majik_Imaje,

 

I have been following this topic. I'm glad that you got the answer you were looking for and I would like for you to think of us anytime you have a system question or a problem. That being said, I am a bit dismayed by your attitude. We all give out time freely to help others here. Iammykyl has been a systems Tech here for a long time. He is very knowledgeable and professional. His questions were meant to give him the information he needed to tailor his answer to your needs, as terry1996 has explained. And as terry1996 confirmed, they weren't out of line. And they certainly weren't stupid. We wouldn't let anyone say that a question of yours is stupid and we would appreciate the same courtesy from you.

We realize that reasonable people will disagree from time to time. However, we expect those disagreements to be respectful by all parties.

 

Regards,

I didn't offer any excuses. It's obvious that you can't tell the difference between an explanation and an excuse. We want you to enjoy your visits here and be an active member. But have it your way. Your attitude has been noted.

This topic is now closed....and that's the end of the discussion.
