    3D Modeling/Rendering Machine w/ gaming capabilites

    Hey everyone, I just wanted your opinion on this build. My budget is $2600 usd which buying solely on Newegg is a little over that with taxes included. I will primarily be using this to do 3D rendering and animation with programs such as, 3ds max, Maya, Softimage, Zbrush, etc and will do slight gaming as well.

    Let me know what you think


    CPU: Intel Core i7-4930K 3.4GHz 6-Core Processor
    CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
    Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth X79 ATX LGA2011 Motherboard
    Memory: Corsair Vengeance 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory
    Storage: Crucial MX100 256GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
    Storage: Western Digital BLACK SERIES 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
    Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 780 6GB TWIN FROZR Video Card
    Case: Corsair Vengeance C70 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case
    Power Supply: EVGA 850W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
    Optical Drive: Pioneer BDR-209DBK Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Writer

    Additional external peripherals not listed because I already have them

    i have nothing bad to say about this,if you need the ram (which you probably need) this is unbeatable
    the best build you can make,unless you can sqeeze in a 780ti i guess

    Hi you stated that you are looking towards a gaming and 3D rendering machine and with a budget like that I think you should go for 780Ti and maybe cut some cost within the RAM (which you can probably add more later). I'm sure the 70TI would prove more beneficial in the long run.

    Thank you guys for responding. I was considering the 780Ti but found the 780 6gb appealing because of that 6gb of VRAM which would definitely come in handy in regards to live preview rendering using Vray RT or Furryball (renderers). I know the 780 ti outperforms at its default configuration but I've researched several benchmarks that showed the gtx 780 6gb outperforming the 780ti once you overclock it. If I'm mistaken, please do correct me.

    This is a really good PC. I personally have a computer that is not as good as this build and I get fine FPS while gaming/rendering and modeling

    This is an amazing build, I can't find ram in it. You will need RAM in order to render things (Obviously). I assume you have already purchased some RAM and that is why you don't need it, correct? However, if you can wait 2015 isn't that far away. When that comes around you could get newer GPU's with better processing power.
