That's a unique requirement. Yes, core i5 is the most VFM way to go. Desii's config is nice. For PSU, have a look at Seasonic S12II Bronze 500W @ 5k (3 year warranty) or Corsair VX550W @ 5.8k (5 year warranty). Both are great brands.
ok got it,

what with my selection, as I dont want to go under run very soon, as with present set up with old 915 board and fit for nothing 2.8 gz cpu, however when I bought this it was not for studio set up.

so some solid rig for 3-5 years,I dont want any performance lag while working, live.

If budget is no concern, then Core i7 will be my recommendation. It will cost you around 20k more than the core i5 setup. You didn't read my suggestion about HDD's it seems? Did you? It's in my post which you quoted. :)

Yea I think you would need that much RAM. I spoke to a couple of my friends they are in your line of work. They use that much RAM. Insane....!

The Quardo/FireGL cards suggested by D.bond are good. My friends swear by them.

@Desibond:
Should we not suggest the quickest HDD platters with good buffer memories. This makes a difference in video editing. Since data needs to be accessed/written quicker. Velocity Raptors...?

For PSU:
Atleast a 650W should be there. Or a 750W. This user is going to mount a lot of stuff on his computer. It happens with video editing. The rigs are awesome.

then please suggest 2-3 examples of rig for the budget posted above letting me know of pros and cons

as I dont want to compromise on m/b+cpu+gfx+smps----please suggest the best not costly:) amd or intel any vfm not compromising on performance.

@asigh, yes. WD Black or Velociraptor should be perfect for 3D. I won't recommend a RAID setup for everyone as it requires some skill and some unknown operation on RAID array can cost huge data loss.

@azaad,

1) core i5 750 +Gigabyte P55+corsair DDR3
2) core i7 920 + EVGA X58 + G-Skill DDR3 performance ram
3) Phenom II X4 965 + 785G or 790GX + G-Skill DDR3 performance ram

or you can wait for the new core i7's (core i7 8xx series) that work on LGA1156 which is more mainstream than LGA1366 for current i7 processors. By going for LGA1156, you can save a lot of money on motherboard.

if you are going to work on dual monitor setup then you better pick the GPU first. for CPU, go for nothing less than Core i7.

And for GPU, my pick would be FireGL V5600 atleast.

I would advice you to do some digging on core i7, core i5, phenom II X4, FireGL, Quadro because you are putting huge amount for the rig and you better know about h/w before spending.

PS: don't listen to your vendor if he says, quadro aur fire nahin chalta and tries to sell you world's best card "Geforce 8600GT" :)

In workstation GPUs, nVidia(Quadro) is best, in terms of support(drivers) or performance, ATI fireGL isn't that popular at all.

If you can tell me the exact softwares you plan to use. I can talk to some friends tomorrow in more detail. They work for some big companies, and are into film/video editing. I know they use Quadro/FireGL for sure. Discussed it once with them.

It is going to be fun setting up this rig.

Yeah. FireGL may not be as popular as Quadro. So is Athlon and Phenom when compared to popularity of Intel's core2

But am yet to find a sub 20k workstation quadro card that can compete with V5700

bro, thanks a lot, s/w--nuendo,cubase, 3ds max, inventor,motion builder etc,
system would be used for not only a/v editing, also composing of music, a lot of vsti's would be loaded, and graphics development,

and also occasional gaming.

at present if we start multiple processes my system starts crying:lol:, offcourse present one cant take load of studio works:)

@desiibond, yes I can wait, there is no hurry for me, I can wait upto April/May 2010.

Sure, no issue. I have made a note of your requirements. Will speak to my friends, and get back to you.

Till then you can research the stuff D.bond recommended.
 
^ yep going through that.

whats major difference between 790fx and 790gx, which is better,

I think 790FX doesn't have onboard GPU, not sure. But 790GX has IGP, I'm sure. That seems to be the main difference.

790FX does not have onboard gpu ie IGP :p

In OC department - 790FX is better but not by a huge margin though ( as compared to 790GX )

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_AMD_chipsets

yes. 790FX comes without a chipset and the both the PCIe slots when crossfired works at full 16x speed whereas those in 790GX work in 8x speed. And 790GX comes with dx10 onboard GPU.

---------- Post added at 08:17 AM ---------- Previous post was at 08:13 AM ----------

785G has following advantage over 790FX/GX:

1300MHz faster HT link HT3.0
much lower power consumption by chipset
dx10.1 support
HDMI
better southbridge
UVD2
ATI stream supported
 

desiibond

Bond, Desi Bond!
@azaad, Just checked the AM3/DDR3 790GX boards and they do support HT3.0 and have SB750 southbridge which puts them on par with 785G on features.

in short, among 790GX and 785G AM3 boards, get one that is cheaper.
