Working on it......in between my own work......but a thing ....since you are so Pro why dont you use Nvidia Quadro/Ati FirePro rather than gaming cards??? If its a TOOL I will suggest FirePro and Quadro,if its a TOY I would suggest a gaming card. Tell us???

^^ :+1: for Quadro/FirePro. BTW.. for multi threaded apps AMD has a slight edge isn't it ?

@OP please do not go for gaming card.
absolutely true a top notch gaming card will be beaten an entry level quadro or firepro ...viceversa.............and please give us an idea about the budget


No, its not compulsory you can suggest other cards....
I was just giving you the insight of the system i'm working...
and for the price the system i'm using cost about 1.2 lakh..
So, you may suggest a system of about 1 lakh...

Moreover, the earlier system cabinet is of zotac and a internal cooling...
Guys, suggest me a best system to work...

That Gigabyte board is X79 chipset and hence is a LGA 2011 socket. An i7 3770K is LGA 1155 socket chip so it wont fit. Z77 chipset based motherboards are good with i7 3770K processors.

The Sabertooth is the most stable board out of all that you have posted. Its reliable,has great quality and perfect for demanding projects. The Maximus V formula is a gaming board and more suited for overclocking than stability,thought that does not mean that its not stable.

GIGABYTE X79S-UP5-WiFi is a good server board as long as you are going to implement SAS and yes with 3960X it edges only in the sequential read write speeds and a little in multithreaded application and has better memory bandwidth but then all that is evident only when you pop in a i7 3960X and we all know how much that chip costs. If you use i7 3820 things wont be that rosy and you will also end up with a dated Processor and Chipset combination.

So in my opinion its better to go with a Z77 (Sabertooth) and an i7 3770K (a little OC will do wonders) combination at the moment and within your budget. Or if you have a high budget better go for C600 and Xeons.


just thinking what will be the price of C600 & Xeons..
and what will be the rigs with them..
moreover, never had use a quadro board before can you give an insight...please

Quadro 4000

AS for C600 based motherboards (GA-X79S-UP5-WIFI ) look at Rs 18000 and above and Xeons E5 has 17 processor in that particular series.So Look at Rs 20K and above starting from the entry level 16XX series.

Will you use the rig as a server too? If not stick to Z77 and i7 3770 or X79 and i7 3820.

If going for the LGA 2011 way ...you can go for i7 3930k+x79 mobo+firepro v5900 or quadro4000.
i7 3930k is almost as good as i7 3960x but costs considerably less,0.1GHz clock and 3MB more cache on i7 3960X are few differences,performance wise nothing much.
