Hii All....First i am working on 3d software's like Maya, Max, Houdini etc.

My budget : 60-70k

==========================================

Processor : Suggest from this 2

1] Intel® Core™ i7-930 Processor (8M Cache, 2.80 GHz, 4.80 GT/s Intel® QPI)

2] Intel® Xeon® Processor W3530 (8M Cache, 2.80 GHz, 4.80 GT/s Intel® QPI)

Check here :-
Code:
http://ark.intel.com/Compare.aspx?ids=37147,41313,41447,
I don't want i7-920 coz difference is only 10$ :) & i Don't know as I read some of d threads no1 suggest Xeon processor even if W3530 is looks better then i7 { I am not into computer parts but in compare i found Xeon W3530 is better then i7-930 in few features with same price. }

Xeon is having this 2 extra features in same price = ECC Memory Supported & Intel® Demand Based Switching { I really don't know what this features for :) }

=========================================

Processor : May i go 4 = Intel® Desktop Board DX58SO

Check here =
Code:
http://www.intel.com/Products/Desktop/Motherboards/DX58SO/DX58SO-overview.htm
I like Intel over AMD as after some researches i found AMD is good then Intel but as AMD goes older its giving trouble & becoming slower so i like to buy Intel mb.

=========================================

Monitor : LCD 22 or 24. I want square monitor as in wide screen sphere looks like egg in 3d software's. 1 of my friend having wide screen so better prefer square 22/24 monitor & specially which going to give less tress to my eyes.

=========================================

Grafix Card : No idea but i prefer Nvidia

=========================================

RAM : 2 to 4 gb is ok. Suggest brand.

=========================================

SMPS : 500w is enough ? or i want more plez suggest.

=========================================

Cabinet : good cooling & adjustable as well if having some ports like esata, headphones, usb its good.

=========================================

That's it........ plez give ur suggestion:idea:.....Thanks.

I think u should go with i7 as they are specifically designed for Desktop PC. Whereas Xeon processors are for severs

I like Intel over AMD as after some researches i found AMD is good then Intel but as AMD goes older its giving trouble & becoming slower so i like to buy Intel mb.
first of all there is nothing like that. amd's processors are not slow and they are VFM than intel. in fact Phenom II X4 Black Edition 955, 965 (priced at 8100, 9100 respectively) perform as fast as Core 2 Quad Q9550, Q9400 (priced at 13000, 9300 respectively)
but sadly they come no where close to core i7. and for your work core i7 is best as they are great for any kind of 2d or 3d rendering.

Core i7 930 2.66GHz @ 14.8k
MSI X58 Pro @ 10.8k
PowerColour HD5770 1GB GDDR5 V2 @ 9.6k
Corsair TR3X2G-1600 XMS3 C9 6GB Kit @ 8.6k
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB @ 5.3k
LG H55N DVD @1.1K
Corsair VX450W @ 3.8k
NZXT Gamma @ 2k
Logitech Keyboard & Mouse combo @ 0.7k
Altec Lansing VS2421 @ 2.2K
Numeric 1 KVA UPS @ 4.2k

Total - 63.1k

rest on a monitor. you can take suggestions about it from somebody else.

ohk processor fix. I am going for Core i7 930.

MSI X58 Pro is this mb good for above processor ?

Corsair VX450W is this enough for above conf. ? don't u think 500w or more is good ?

I like HD5770 1GB GDDR5 but I am going for XFX as PowerColour design is not that good. Any other nvidia gfx card choice ?

I like the case. Its cool. Looks r ok but overall great deal 4 its price.

I already have ups, keyboard,mouse & speaker so i want only products which i mention in my 1st post but thanks for suggestions.

Plez if u give me few more good choices in Mb, gfx card & monitor its good for me to choose from.

Thanks again for help.

if you wan't only the cpu components then you can get a really powerful rig for that budget

Core i7 930 2.66GHz @ 14.8k

MSI X58 Pro @ 10.8k (great VFM)
(some other -
BIOSTAR TPower X58 @ 12.5k
ASUS Rampage II Gene @ 17.4k)

Sapphire HD5870 1GB GDDR5 @ 22.9k(ONLY IF YOU GAME SERIOUSLY)
otherwise -
Sapphire HD5850 1GB GDDR5 @ 15.8k
otherwise -
PowerColour HD5770 1GB GDDR5 V2 @ 9.6k(sufficient for your work)

Corsair TR3X2G-1600 XMS3 C9 6GB Kit @ 8.6k
Corsair VX550W(hd5870 or 5850) @ 5k or Corsair VX450W @ 3.8k(hd5770)

========================================
Radeon™ HD 5770 1024 MB DDR5 DisplayPort XXX (HD-577A-ZNDC) = PCI-E 2.0

Radeon™ HD 5770 1024 MB DDR5 DisplayPort XXX (HD-577A-ZNDK) = PCI-E 2.1

===========================================
@
Jaskanwar Singh = I prefer 5770 but if i go for XFX is that ok coz PowerColour design is not that good & there is no such a huge price difference.

Processor = Core i7 930 2.66GHz

Mother Board = NOt sure yet about brand Intel chipset, MSI or any other brand ???

GFX Card = Radeon™ HD 5770 1024 MB DDR5 but (HD-577A-ZNDC) = PCI-E 2.0 OR (HD-577A-ZNDK) = PCI-E 2.1 or any1 having Nvidia SLI choice ??

Cabinet : I will choose 1 from NZXT product. If any1 have other brand choices plez give me ur suggestions soon.

RAM : Corsair 4GB DDR3 1600MHz C9 Titanium OR Corsair TW3X4G-1600C9DHX 4GB Kit ?? I think 4gb is enough for me. May be i will increase it to 6gb later.

why do you wan't DX58SO? if you wan't a high end mobo go for ASUS Rampage II Gene, but still such mobos are not recommended for your work (they are for gamers). MSI X58 Pro is sufficient, a great VFM
THERE IS VERY LITTLE PERFORMANCE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOARDS WITH SAME CHIPSET
PCI-E 2.0 & 2.1 have same speed
PCI-E 2.1 card will work with PCI-E 2.0
you have made a good choice for graphics card

---------- Post added at 09:04 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:02 PM ----------

6GB of ram is recommended for your work. you can go for Corsair TR3X2G-1333 XMS3 C9 6GB Kit @ 7k

Cooler Master Centurion 690 @ 4.2k is another cabinet

I am playing games to bro & i completed farcry, farcry2, witcher, stalker soc & cs & more so i want to play few games too like gta 4, Mafiya 2, Diablo 3, Stalker cop & good action n RPG game. I am not a serious gamer so don't want to play games at high end settings but want to play on medium setting for fun as well i am not going to change my pc conf. at least for 3/4 years so i want good mobo too. that's why i am asking for DX58SO which having good cooling + good sound & as i am purchasing intel processor i think its quite good that i go 4 intel chipset DX58SO....any suggestion ??

now only have to choice motherboard & Monitor. I think latest wide screen monitors r supported Softwares like maya, max. Plus i have to check that Radeon™ HD 5770 1024 MB DDR5 DisplayPort XXX (HD-577A-ZNDK) is suported bt maya 2010 or not as every gfx card is not for maya.

Thanks again for ur great help.

@OP, you wont get square monitors above 19 inch now, certainly not in LCDs.
circle never seems to be oval or an egg in widescreen. certainly you SW is some old SW and does not works in those res, though IMO it is unlikely even older SW wont do that. until and unless you have generated something in square ration i.e. 1:1 and put into full screen and it tries to stretch to cover the display.
get 6GB ram as in core i7 triple channel RAM support is their.

@OP:
You would be better suited with a PRO series card. Quadro or FireGL. These are non gaming cards, but certified and tested for 3D work, for the likes you are interested in. Gaming cards, are ill suited for 3D work.

ok so i think i decided to go for....
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Processor = Core i7 930 2.66GHz = FIX
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GFX Card = XFX Radeon™ HD 5770 1024 MB DDR5 (HD-577A-ZNDK) = PCI-E 2.1 = FIX
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

RAM : Corsair TR3X2G-1600 XMS3 C9 6GB Kit = FIX
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HDD : Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB = FIX
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Power Supply : Corsair VX550W = FIX
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Plez give me some more details on MSI mb features which is better then intel chipset ya MSI price is really good but i think intel processors r surely going to support more intel chipset & intel as more/good support for many software's.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cabinet : Not yet decided. As i want easy to remove function for hdd. I like NZXT M59 but i really don't like that vertical drive mounting means i don't know how i am going to remove sata & power supply cables from it ??? If hdd mounting is horizontal then i think its eas to remove cables from hdd...Any suggestions ???
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Monitor : Yeh i think many lcd monitor brands finds the problem of some software's which requires square ratio so i think wide screen is ok for me but as my work needs close view with monitor many times plez suggest me monitor which going to care my eyes. 22"/24" is good. Specially suggest me a good lcd brand so that i will check there site for features.

Samsung, viewsonic, benq, aser, dell or any other ????
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks for all friends for lots of help n 4 giving me good pc knowledge :)

Plez feel free to post nay suggestion u likke to give me.

@CHALLENGER

Go for jaskanar's config and stick with the msi x58 pro.Its real vfm and you won't regret.

As far gpu is concerned you should wait for gtx 470 as its just around the corner.

Ya but i think there is no such a big price difference in x58pro & pro-E so why not pro-E ?

Just want to know the difference that's why asking.

Franky i really like the looks of Intel® Desktop Board DX58SO the mb looks much professional then any other x58 ya but as i check some of d sites for MSI i am really falling in love with MSI coz of VFM.

But still i am confuse with mb as they have different features with different prices & really don't know which feature is good for me for mb price & for my work so plez if possible give me some detail info on features of Intel Desktop Board DX58SO & MSI x58pro & pro-E. Or if u give me any site link for compair this 3 product its really going to help me a lot to choose from this 3 mb.
Thanks.

Buddy the msi pro-e is great board and you is a good overclocker.You cannot oc with the intel board and the bios lacks a lot of features.

So go for the msi eyes closed.

And consider fermi as the gpu when it launches on march 26th.
