well just wondering did op got his system up and running? wanted to see >.<
3770K is OTW from Chicago
that's great and you're the one who shipped it to him right death? yer a great guy ^_^. can't wait for op to show (hopefully) to us the parts before building it and when he's building it. This should be awesome.
Prodigy? or Shinobi? Shinobi is the one in the picture
I did get it and ship it to him for no profit. I have a Tiger Direct 2 blcks from me and they price guarantee Microcenter stuff for me. The good thing is, I got a good 3770K for myself that overclocks 4.8GHz at 1.34 volts and hopefully he gets the same batch.
Still waiting on some of the components. I'll post pre and post build pics of it all and some performance data. One thing I'm still holding out on is the video card. I've heard of people modifying GeForce cards to run Quadro drivers with pretty good results. Any options on this?
Finally got everything together! Wanted to thank everyone for their advice, especially drdeathx who not only gave me some great advice but also got me a great deal on a i7-3770K!
I've got everything except the graphics card. So far even with the built in graphics things are looking good. I'm still on the fence as to whether to get a entry level Nividia Quadro or spend the same money on a nicer GeForce and modify it to run Quadro drivers. Does anyone here have any advice on that?
So here are what I finally built;
CPU($265): Intel i7-3770K
mother board($125): Asus P8Z77-V LX
PSU($60): Seasonic S12II 430
DVD($24): Asus DRW-24B1ST
HD($190): Crucial m4 256GM
RAM($98): 2x Corsair Vengeance 8GB
case($100): Lian Li PC-7H
Keyboard(had): Leopold FC500RT/AB
mouse(had): Kensington k64325
monitor(had): Samsung P2570HD
total of $862
So I've got ~$140 to spend on a graphics card if I want to stay under $1000. I'm thinking I'll probably end up spending somewhere in the $150-$200 range though.
Anyway thanks again for all the help, I'm really happy with the system so far!
Is CAD a serious hobby for you or a job? Nice build regardless.
DDD, that was the wrong bench you posted. This is more what CAD production would need in this bench.
doesnt matter now, he got the better 3770 for cheap.
you can do that? first time im hearing that. but i guess if the architecture is same it should be possible.
what software would you use mainly? you can always check the supported graphics cards for that software. a lot of newer software versions are supporting normal commercial graphics cards. so its worth having a look at the charts.
I remember a couple of years back the cards that shared the same arch as quadro cards could be flashed to represent a quadro.
Precisely, I remember seeing about that a few years back. But I think today's video cards a bit harder to do that which wouldn't surprise me with all this boost crap and power saving nonsense. Unfortunately I haven't seen many articles or posts on sites explaining how to do that on modern cards.
If your doing a build for CAD you should be building the system around the graphics card.
The graphics card is the most important thing for your build.
