Please Help. I want build pc for Cad workstation and video editing (and little bit gaming).

Prasad001

Hi Linus tech tips, I'm low on budget. I want build pc for Cad workstation and video editing (and little bit gaming). I'm from India. Can you suggest me a system under Rs.35000 to 45000/- (500 to 650 U.S dollar) which atleast help me for 3 years. 

I know that my budget is too low. But I don't mind usin used parts and ddr3 ram can do the trick for me.

If possible under this budget, motherboard may have ram expansion upto 32 GB . For now, I'm thinking about 16gb of ddr3. Remain for future upgrades.

I don't mind if processor is of Xeon series.If this gives me required performance,then I have no problem. 

Pc Should have water cooler ,because ambient air temp in the my workplace is more.

Also don't account for monitor, keyword and mouse. 

I know ,I'm asking alot in this low budget. But please help..

Trust me, a quality air cooler is what you want. Water cooling isn't special when it comes to how good the cooling is.

However:

This seems close as I could get, I really recommend using this and then upgrading later. having a Ryzen setup is so helpful because you can get really high core counts later and not have to get a new motherboard or ram. 

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

Thanks.But this rig may be not suitable for 3d rendering and FEA analysis. As per  I know, FEA analysis and 3d Rendering utilities high multi threaded performance.

I think , I need more powerful CPU.

You can spring for a R5 2400g and get no graphics card for now, which will give you a quad core with SMT and some minor graphics capabilities.

 

You can also get more ram if you choose.

The VS series is far inferior to the CX series, a good power supply is a good investment. If you must, get the cheapest grey label CX units that you can.

1050 ti in this case. Not only is it a faster GPU, but whatever cad program you're using might like cuda acceleration a lot.

Should I go for 1050ti mini or 1050ti oc edition?Both are near same in price.

 

This rig is for cad workstation.but how will this work in terms of gaming and video editing.

For cad, there will be likely very little difference, and I don't know what brand of OC edition you mean. However, of it's the ones I'm thinking about, get the mini. The armor OC is not great.

Oh that one is better then, similar shroud to their bigger graphics cards and a nice dual fan design.

The 1050 ti isn't the strongest card for cad, but anything that has GPU acceleration will be helped.

This means,I can most games ,but some high end games can not run on high setting. I'm ok with that for now. I can upgrade graphics card in future.

 

What do you think about ryzen 7 1700?

Is it better or worse than ryzen 5 2600?

Your budget is just too small for what you want. You could wait for new Ryzen processors to launch in about a month, driving prices down for current Ryzen, and new graphics cards around the same time too, driving prices down for current grapics cards. But you have to make some sacrifices for your budget. What I really don't recommend is an old Xeon with DDR3 because you have to replace the whole thing at some point.

I think you are right.

Xeons themselves are fine, but Ryzen is just so much better these days, there's very little reason to get ta Xeon.

If you are only using it for CAD, maybe you could use the Radeon 2100WX, as it is well suited for that kind of work.

Cad workstation is my main concern.but I also want to do video editing and gaming.

I still do recommend using the Ryzen 5 2400G for a little while and then getting more cores later.
