Need a PC Urgently for 3d Rendering


This template is designed to help us understand your needs. Edit the example text in gray according to your needs.

I need help in buying/building a new PC. My budget and requirements are as follows:
  • Budget: Rs 40,000/-
  • Existing hardware setup: AMD Phenom X4, Msi g65 790gx, 4gb DDR3 Corsair Valur RAM (1033), Sapphire HD 6670 1gb ddr5
  • Components from the existing setup that you intend to keep: not sure
  • Components that you have in mind for your new PC: depends on the budget
  • Plans to upgrade in the future: not anytime soon
  • Places from where you will buy components along with your location: SP road/ Online (needurgently so SP Road, Blore is preferred)
  • Are you comfortable with buying secondhand components from the Erodov market? : Yes but can't wait for shipping
  • Intended use of the PC [gaming/office use/rendering/HD playback etc] : gaming and intensive 3d rendering (gaming not that much as I will use the existing setup for that)
  • Brand preferences: Doesn't matter
  • Monitor resolution and size: 1920x1200 24inch
  • Will you be overclocking your setup?: Not at the moment
  • Which OS will you use?: Win 7/ Ubuntu
Anyway, I might have to buy a second rig, maybe by tuesday/wednesday. Main use of the rig (for now) would be 3d rendering. Later on, maybe casual gaming or movies. In fact, I'm not even sure if I need a second rig, but some urgent work has come up and requires me to render about a 100+ photorealistic scenes, and I'm not sure if I will be able to render it on such a short deadline ( 4th-5th April) using just one rig. (if someone can, with absolute certainity, assure me that I can use his system for the task, I wont need to buy a new system).
My budget it fixed, and i will not budge from it.


I can buy a second hand rig suitable for the purpose if it is available locally. Not too sure about buying outside b'lore as shipping might be a bitch.

Re: Need a PC Urgently for 3d Rendering

Definitely get an i7 with HT. 4 cores + HT, will really kill at rendering.

Re: Need a PC Urgently for 3d Rendering

i7 2600K

Asus P8Z68 or even P8P67 (if you want the build to be cheaper)
Look at Gigabyte boards too, but I like the current crop of Asus' over the current Gigabytes.

Corsair or G.Skill 1600 Mhz CL9 RAM (Timings don't really affect the 2600K's performance much.)

Keep your current GPU.

I'm sure you can fill in the rest.

Re: Need a PC Urgently for 3d Rendering

That looks like a killer config...now I will have to wait till tuesday to see if I need to buy this or not (fingers crossed- I was looking for a reason to upgrade)
Thanks bro.

Btw, any other suggestions that are a little less damaging to my pockets?

Re: Need a PC Urgently for 3d Rendering

What @Ad1tya said + a lot of RAM .. minimum 8GB.

And if the machine will be used for Post Production (like After Effects/Premiere/Audio Editing) then 16GB.

Also the GPU will matter if you will be using Vray RT in 3DS max a lot (And other tools like Houdini/Realflow/Vue etc). Otherwise RAW CPU power is needed.

Right now, Vray 2.0 for Maya works on my i7 2600k (@ 4.5Ghz) + 16GB RAM + the GTX 560

It will be helpful if you mention the Software you be using and the renderer. Also are the scenes animated or still images?

Re: Need a PC Urgently for 3d Rendering

@ViKiD
@Ad1tya

Most likely, I will NOT be doing any animation or post production. I mostly work with Max+mentalray as somehow I manage to get better results with it as compared to Vray (don't hate me- I have been working with mentalray for almost 9 years now where as I started with vray just about a year ago, so my expertise with it is limited).

One more thing, the scenes I deal with almost always have a very low polygon count (typically 1 million or lesser), mostly because as an architect, i fell into the habit of avoiding curves, so will having 16gb/8gb makie that much of a difference?

Re: Need a PC Urgently for 3d Rendering

Then the GPU will not matter much.

Umm... as per your requirements, 8 GB should suffice.

Re: Need a PC Urgently for 3d Rendering

Thanks everyone for your help. One more question: should i go for z68 or x 79, seeing that they are similarly priced?
