Hi, i am looking into upgrading my self built desktop and i was wondering what you lot thought would be best for it. My work load is mainly 3D modeling, rendering and texturing so CPU speed and RAM are paramount to the software i use :- 3DsMAX 2012 Cinema 4D Poser Pro 2012 PS CS4 All high end 3D application programs demanding a high end PC to which i built at the time with the budget i had. I am in a position to better the set up now so some advice on what i could add or change to the MB would be most appreciated. Here are the stats of the pc at the moment. Gigabyte GA-X58 USB3 MB 12gig OCZ Tripple channel gold RAM Intel Core i7 950 LGA1366 (Standard CPU Fan) XFX Radeon 6870 (Dont need to change this as programs arent reliant on GPU) CoolMaster Silent Pro 500w (May replace this if needed) 3x1TB Samsung F3 HDD W7 64bit I dont want to get into a rebuild so replacing things to suite the MB is what i am looking at doing, any other info as requested. I attached a cpuz just incase. Thanks for any info offered, Lee.
