Building PC
show user profile  sheheryar_noor
I am building a pc for 3d work. Sofware i will be using
3ds max
Vray
Marvelous Designer.
Substance Painter and Designer
Quixel Suit.
Infra work and fusion 360 (optional)

I have been told that combining best things doesn't work always. Sometime your $600 Graphics card can run like a poo, the important thing is compitability but i am don't know how would i have to know if the specs are compitable or not.

120GB SSD
1TB HDD
4 to 6 GB Nvidia Graphics card
Core i7
16gb minimum RAM

I am very confused about mother board.


Graphics Card:

GIGABYTE GTX 1060 3072MB-192BIT-GDDR 5 CORE CLOCK 1771MHZ MEMORY CLOCK 8008MHZ - DISPLAY PORT (GV-N1060AXOC-3GD) Price: 27,500

GIGABYTE GTX 960 4096MB - 128BITS - GDDR 5-CORE CLOCK 1304MHZ-MEMORY CLOCK 7010MHZ ? DUAL LINK DVI - HDMI (GV-N960WF20C-4GD) Price:25,000

GIGABYTE GTX 1050Ti (G1 GAMING) 4096MB-128BIT-GDDR 5 CORE CLOCK 1506MHZ MEMORY CLOCK 7008MHZ - DISPLAY PORT (GV-N105TG1 GAMING-4G) Price: 24,500



GIGABYTE GTX 1050Ti (WINDFORCE) 4096MB-128BIT-GDDR 5 CORE CLOCK 1468MHZ MEMORY CLOCK 7008MHZ - DISPLAY PORT (GV-N105TWF2OC-4GD) Price: 23,500


Processors:

Intel Core i7 3820 2011 Socket 3.6GHZ 10MB CACHE Price: 30,000

Intel Core i5 6600K 6TH GEN. 3.5GHZ 6MB CACHE Price: 28,000

Intel Core i7 7700 7TH GEN. 3.6GHZ 8MB CACHE 38,800 (Rare chances to get this)


RAM:

Kingston 8GB 2133 BUS DDR 4 6,500

Kingston HyperX 8GB 2400 BUS DDR 4 (HX424C15FB/8) 6,900

Corsair Vengeance 8GB 2400 BUS DDR 4 (CMK8GX4M1A2400C14R) 6900

Kingston 16GB 2133 BUS DDR 4 (SINGLE SLOT) 12500 ( It is single slot so means frying one bar is loosing 16gb at once.)



SSD:

A-Data 120GB SOLID STATE DRIVE SP550 SERIES (ASP550SS3-120GM-C) Price: 5400

Kingston 120GB SOLID STATE DRIVE Price: 5600

Transcend 128GB SOLID STATE DRIVE Model :370 Price: 5700
Transcend 128GB SOLID STATE DRIVE (M SATA) Model : MS A370 Price: 9300

Western Digital 120GB SOLID STATE DRIVE GREEN (Part # WDS120G1G0A-00SS50) Price: 5500

What power supply will be good for this system?

The Intel Core i7 7700 looks awesome.

I've only purchased Asus motherboards for the last 3 computers I built. So far I haven't had a bad experience with Asus, but I've heard solid things about Gigabyte.

Get a video card in the 1000 series. Pascal apparently has much greater performance than Maxwell. If you can wait, I'd wait for the 1080ti to come out and get one of those (if it's in your budget).

Get more than 8gb of ram. I'd suggest 16-32gb. Ideally 32gb for a desktop. If you don't have the money to purchase all ram at once get a couple of 8bg sticks so you can upgrade from 16gb to 32gb at a later time.

Just make sure to read the RAM, CPU and MB comparability charts on the manufacturer's website.

Thanks for answering.
I will be using 16gb ram. i7 7000 looks awesome but its price is higher enough than i7 3820 which can save my almost 100 USD and i can upgrade ram in this amount to 32gb or can upgrade graphics card. But again what i am confused about is the mother board. Specs are below

Intel Core i7 3820 2011 Socket 3.6GHZ 10MB CACHE
16GB RAM (Kingston,Kingston Hyperx or Corsair?) which one do you guys recommend?
SSD 120gb (Kingston,transcend,WD or A-Data?:)

GIGABYTE GTX 1060 3072MB-192BIT-GDDR 5 CORE CLOCK 1771MHZ MEMORY CLOCK 8008MHZ - DISPLAY PORT (GV-N1060AXOC-3GD)

1TB HDD


Now the confusing thing is mother board. Can i have the above specs on any of the below mother board without having bottleneck?

ASUS H170 PLUS DDR4 Intel LGA1151 Platform - Intel H170 Express Chipset

ASUS H170 PRO DDR4 Intel LGA1151 Platform - Intel H170 Express Chipset

GIGABYTE GA-H170-HD3 DDR4 Intel LGA1151 Platform - Intel H170 Chipset

GIGABYTE GA-H170-HD3 DDR3 Intel LGA1151 Platform - Intel H170 Chipset


If i want to upgrade my graphics card and want to install 32 or 64gb ram later (16gb bar each) will i be able to install it on any of the above mother board? https://www.artstation.com/artist/threed_brothers

I don't know all that much about hardware comparability without doing a bunch of research on the specific hardware. Check out this site to see if you'll have any compatibility issues-

https://pcpartpicker.com/

It's not 100% but it's a good tool. Personally, I let companies do my work for me. I'll go to custom computer building companies and build a machine, then just purchase the hardware myself and put it together

I think those higher end motherboard are just the same as their low-end counterparts, but with less features (overclocking etc ...). I dont think there is a performance benefit in the higher end ones.

As to the DDR3/DDR4 one, i would go for the DDR4 one. If not for the extra performance (if any) you might be able to reuse your memory for the next upgrade ;)

I just upgraded my RAM a week ago, so i can recommend using RAM sticks that are as common as possible.
I think it will be better to use 2400 over 2133 for that reason.
Also please notice that when you will upgrade your memory, if you cant get the exact same memry stick(which can get hard to find after a few years), you will need to find a stick that has the same capacity and timings. Otherwise you can have problems.
My upgrade from 16gb 2133mhz ddr3, to 32gb went fine, but i had to reduce the original sticks to 1600mhz since i can only find ddr3 sticks with the right timing at 1600mhz.

Good luck
Joel

It could be an idea to wait a month for AMD Ryzen to come out.
If they do good, chances are the prices will drop on the CPU market.

And then they also have the upcoming Vega GPU. But that'll take a few more months, I think.

Thank everyone.

So motherboard doesn't matter much, i can use
GIGABYTE GA-H170-HD3 DDR3 Intel LGA1151 Platform - Intel H170 Chipset instead of GIGABYTE GA-Z270X-GAMING 7 DDR4 Intel LGA1151 Platform - Intel Z270 Chipset. I don't know but probably the second one will be somehow better than first one but still i can use H170 series.

Joelr, thanks for telling me about the RAM and their bus speed. I will go for DDR4 2400, but i don't know if 2400 will be available in Kingston because Kingston is very common here as you said i should use something which i can find later in the market.

Can anyone tell me why this card

GIGABYTE GTX 1060 3072MB-192BIT-GDDR 5 CORE CLOCK 1771MHZ MEMORY CLOCK 8008MHZ - DISPLAY PORT (GV-N1060AXOC-3GD) is expensive than this
GIGABYTE GTX 960 4096MB - 128BITS - GDDR 5-CORE CLOCK 1304MHZ-MEMORY CLOCK 7010MHZ ? DUAL LINK DVI - HDMI (GV-N960WF20C-4GD) and this


GIGABYTE GTX 1050Ti (G1 GAMING) 4096MB-128BIT-GDDR 5 CORE CLOCK 1506MHZ MEMORY CLOCK 7008MHZ - DISPLAY PORT (GV-N105TG1 GAMING-4G)


Is it because of clock Mhz? if yes then another question is what matters much in rendering? GB or clock mhz speed?

Thanks again for sharing your knowledge https://www.artstation.com/artist/threed_brothers
