  2. In the future, please make it clear that you were at the limit for your budget. I think all of us were making suggestions on the assumption that you had a larger budget than you actually had. You didn't make this clear until post #13 in the thread. brob, I would actually take the increased CUDA performance over the optimization that the Quadro provides at that price point. Also, Sadistic_Potato, saying that we don't know what we're talking about when in fact we do know what we're talking about isn't the best way to get the best opinions on your build.
  3. I do the exact same work you're looking to do, and if I had a 750ti I'd be bloody miserable with how long everything is taking to display in the viewport. If you didn't want our advice, then you shouldn't have posted. I've used both a 780 and a Quadro and I've had so much more satisfaction with the Quadro since lines don't tear, I can quickly move around my models and I have a lot better output options, not to mention 10 bit colour for photoshop and touch-up work. But by all means, go with your 750ti if it will truly make you happy.
  4. I don't know what kind of info you've read. It will help in correctly displaying lines and graphics in all of these programs, not to mention quicken your workflow. Links to help:
  5. Is there a budget available for a Quadro or at least one 980? That video card is extremely underwhelming in relation to the rest of your system.
  6. @Slick you should look into the Sony Xperia Z3, or Z3c. If it was available on my carrier I would get it in a heartbeat
  7. Is there a reason you wouldn't buy another LGA2011 v1 board to save you the cost of having to buy an entirely new CPU and DDR4 RAM?
  8. I mean go with 4x8GB if you're rendering and doing video editing, with the possibility going to 64GB total with all DIMMs full. In my work right now (architectural modeling, rendering and animation) I consistently use more than 20GB of memory in AfterEffects. More RAM helps me because I use all my programs concurrently
  9. I would stick to 8GB RAM sticks rather than 4GB sticks. Radiator should go in the top. I think the Corsair RM series is fine, the difference is a wash IMHO.
  10. I haven't heard the same, but it's not the end of the world if he doesn't get it. Do you have a certain link I could follow? I'm curious.
  11. Or, if he didn't want 16GB of RAM, he could buy a low capacity SSD for a boot drive, so he'd have the following: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: Intel Core i5-4440 3.1GHz Quad-Core Processor ($164.99 @ NCIX US) Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-B85M-DS3H Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($55.98 @ Newegg) Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($62.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($54.98 @ OutletPC) Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($51.85 @ OutletPC) Video Card: Sapphire Radeon R9 290 4GB Tri-X Video Card ($259.99 @ Newegg) Case: NZXT Tempest 210 ATX Mid Tower Case ($49.99 @ Newegg) Power Supply: Rosewill Capstone 750W 80+ Gold Certified ATX Power Supply ($49.99 @ Newegg) Total: $750.76 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2015-01-02 21:35 EST-0500
  12. If he was fixed on it, he could grab 16GB (2x8GB) of RAM without going over budget. It really is spectacular how much $700 (or $750) gets you.
  13. Also this should be in the planned builds section if it hasn't already been moved yet.
