I'm trying to put something together to replace my ageing HP xw6400 (dual xeon 3.6ghz, 4gb ram, win xp) workstation. I use it mainly for 3d drawing and rendering, but I would like to do some gaming as well. programs I mainly use include Sketchup, Blender, Z brush etc. I have put together the beginnings of a build:
The 6 core AMD seems good for the money and my rendering program can use all the cores :) undecided on case..it will probably have to be very cheap! suggestions and feedback most welcome. This will be my first build and I am a little lost! Oh and will that corsair memory fit in with the cooler or should I get the low profile ram instead? I also need the rig to be quiet and cool as I tend to leave my renderings cooking overnight!
