Looking for a £2.5k PC.
Mainly used for intensive rendering and gaming.
Prefer Intel to AMD naturally, any ideas?
Gimme 2 min, Also do you need OS/MONITOR/PERIPHERALS?
OS I can get....
Could do with a new monitor, but not a necessity, also no keyboard/mouse required.
This will max everything with the 4k 27" FreeSync Monitor included. Wasn't sure how much ram you would need for rendering but i think 32gb should be enough.

Thanks man that looks sick! Can I ask why you chose the cross fire say over a single Titan?
There is 2 titans, Z and X. At one point these were the best you could get, but now they aren't. A titan x cost's about £800-900 but you can get 2 fury x for that price, bearing in mind that a single fury x is better than a single titan x, you can make the build cheaper by getting a single fury x instead of 2 if you want and it will still be better than a single titan x.
Passmark doesn't agree with you: http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html
Fury X is better than Titan Z, but Titan X beats Fury X.
Synthetic benchmarks mean nothing if the in game performance is better. According to that list a 780ti and a 970 are better? Yeah, sure!
Also, this was done in July last year, since then the fury has had huge performance increases with windows 10 and crimson drivers.
I have never had the luck / luxury to compare such high end cards personally, but if you look at NVIDIA's own performance chart the GTX 780 Ti does perform better than the GTX 970.
I've found another quick comparison (3 month old article): http://wccftech.com/amd-r9-fury-x-performance-ahead-nvidia-980-ti-latest-drivers/
Based on this, the Fury X does not perform better than the GTX 980 Ti or Titan X.
All I'm saying, is can you please show articles, performance measurements, etc that confirm your statements?
I've found this article: http://www.extremetech.com/gaming/208874-amds-radeon-fury-x-previewing-performance-power-consumption-and-4k-scaling/2
Titan X vs Fury X... Depends on resolution: http://www.extremetech.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/SoM3.png
http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/Yfgszy 6 Core CPU for rendering 2TB of SSD storage 1440p 144Hz Freesync IPS monitor albeit it ist a bit weaker than 2 Fury X but this is still a very powerful gaming rig
Put 390 instead, the performance increase is not worth it to get the X
I guess so since the X only has 5 fps gains on a single card setup
How does this look? I added 3 390s instead of 2 390x and changed the mobo out since it is a little overkill http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/FX7PMp
2x Fury x is still possible.
