Sounds good to me, you might want a bit more Ram perhaps.

I think I'd go for more DDR2 and rather than less DDR3... but I'm not an expert, so ignore me if I'm talking rubbish...

Dude, you're getting ripped off.

I'm glad you posted.
I'll help you out.

This model has a dedicated video processor, multi channel multi mode wave and white noise generator, AND is the only computer endorsed by Captain Kirk!

I mean, come on! It's James Kirk! How could you NOT buy this?!?!?

That pc would be great for max some would argue you need more ram, by the way ddr3 ram isn't really faster than ddr2 ram yet so you'd be wasting money their, so you might want to go for the 780i motherboards.

Perhaps here, they will get simple replies as to whether the chosen spec is good for a 3D workstation.

I asked a question about ram types on a hardware forum a while back, and got 7 replies of absolute gobbledigeek. Turns out, all I needed to be told was one sentence!

I'd advise a dual quadcore 3.8Ghz with 16gigs of ram and 4 raptor HD's in superraid and . eizo 22" widescreens.

At least that's what I want doing medelling.

Perhaps because HARDWARE questions go in HARDWARE section? If you're not giving advice or gaining knowledge from posts like that all you really have to do is just.. nothing.
