Hello - I'm coming from a Mac and and want to build a home PC that will run Octane Render fast (It all depends on CUDA cores). I've decided on dual 980 Ti, but other than that, I don't want to deal with liquid cooling for the GPUs. I just want them to run as efficiently as possible without bottlenecking the cards. I don't need to have the latest and greatest CPU, I have a mid 2011 (3.4) i7 27 inch iMac for all other software. Not a huge interest in PC gaming, this would be a dedicated Octane Render computer. SSD for boot, and 7200 for storage would be nice. I really like the non flashy stuff, just clean. Anyway, I have been researching this stuff for awhile, but everything is starting to get overwhelming as far as which CPU/motherboard/power/cooling mix. I have a DELL U2713HM 1440 display, and accessories that I like already. I would really appreciate some feedback and sample build lists! $2000-$2500 budget.Thanks!
