I visited this forum some years ago, and I recieved great help with trying to chose components for a new system. Well, it's been 10 years or so, and I'm in need of similar assistance!
My system is pretty dated now, and I need to upgrade as I will be using it a lot for CAD design work. It'll be mainly 2D work, so nothing too taxing, but every now and and then I may be required to do 3D modelling and rendering etc. It will not be used for games.
This is what I currently have:
Antec 900 Case
EVGA nFORCE 680i Motherboard
1536MB EVGA GTX480 (this is the newest component!)
Intel Q6600 CPU
4 x 2GB OCZ DDR2 800Mhz PC2 6400 RAM
Samsung Spinpoint SATA II 1TB hard drive
Hiper 5th Gen 730W PSU
Now, a lot of this stuff is pretty old, so naturally I need to upgrade. I've got a budget of around £500 give or take. I don't need to worry about a monitor as my old one still works fine.
Would any one be able to help suggest components that I can buy in order to give me a PC that will be of reasonable spec, capable of handling the work described above?
Preferably, I would need to buy from www.scan.co.uk, or www.ebuyer.com.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
