Quote from: Walli on June 18, 2010, 09:31:16 amHi,I know, thats just another request for hints concerning hardware ;-)I plan to get a new machine and I am interested in some opinions - as I am not really a hardware geek ;-)I was thinking about a Core i7 machine, motherboard with at least 4 RAM slots (6 would be better), 8 to 12GB of RAM.GFX I would like to go the "gamer route", as almost none of my applications really benefit from a quadro or firegl card. I think I would prefer nvidia, as some renderers support rendering via cuda on gfx board.Harddisks - either two big drives, perhaps one small (for fast system) and two big datatanksUSB3 support would be nice, but not important.Budget - I don´t think that it can be less then 1600,- Euro, so I am prepared to rob the next bank ;-)thanks,WalliP.S What do you think about overclocked systems? Some shops offer tested overclocked systems, running at 4GHz (instead of 2.8 or similar). This is of course significantly more...
