Bulding a high-end graphics workstation for school
Once again, I have been put in charge of a project at school.
Our lab was recently broken into and the school is looking into replacing some of the machines that were stolen. However, my computer teacher is also leaving the option open of just building one BIG computer for Video Editing, Photoshop, Video Capture, Audio Processing, Programming, & Robotics.
A friend with more time than I suggested:
Whereas I suggested:
ASUS P5B Wi-Fi
ATI FireGL v5200
2GB Corsair Dominator
...and no, unfortunately, nVidia's Quadro® Plex 1000 is too expensive.
What do you guys recommend? I have always just built Gaming computers and never really worked with any of the Quadro or FireGL cards. At the moment, I am unsure of budget, but I will estimate at ~2000$.
