Hey everyone, I have been lurking this website for years now, and I really appreciate all the help I receive from it. I am stuck in a huge dilemma right now, and it revolves around a workstation computer. I have been eyeing the Mac Pro for quite some time now, and I really think it is a great computer. I personally own a macbook pro and it has done wonders for me, but because I am in architecture school and 3d modelling and intense VRAY & 3DS MAX renderings are not meant to be done on laptops, I am settling for a new workstation. I am hoping to spend no more than 3000 on this machine, and I was hoping the new Mac Pro's were going to come out, but now I am at the point where I don't want to dream anymore and I want a serious answer. I am going to be using programs such as Revit Architecture, AutoCAD, 3DS Max and such. I know that these programs don't come on OSX and that bootcamp can only get you so far. So here is what I have had in mind. Mac Pro (with whatever configuration it comes in once september comes along) or the following so to say. This is just one setup I found online and it looked decent, but then again I am no expert and this is why I need your opinions because I know some of you are professionals and deal with this kind of stuff. $2,875.00 Intel Xeon E5529 2.26GHz 8MB Cache LGA1366 80W Quad-Core Server Processor ASUS Socket 1366 Inttel X58 Express Chipset Processors supported 7 PCI-E 2.0 x16 Expansion Slots ATX Motherboard PNY Quadro FX 4800 1.5GB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI Express Corsair Dominator 6GB (3X2GB) 1600 MhZ Seagate Barracuda 7200 1.5TB 7200RPM Thermaltake Black Widow 850W ATX12V 2.2 SLI/Crossfire Ready MOdular active PFC Power Supply Zalman Professional Black COmputer Case Steel Full Tower What do you think?
