Default Buying new Custom PC - mainly for 3D rendering and some gaming.

ok so i do 3D rendering and wanted to know if this is a good rig...

motherboard: Newegg.com - ASUS P5N-D LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

power supply: Newegg.com - Antec TPQ-850 850W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, CUL, FCC, TUV, CE, C-tick, CCC, CB - Power Supplies

^ is this power supply good enough for my rig?


processor: Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 Yorkfield 2.5GHz 6MB L2 Cache LGA 775 95W Quad-Core Processor - CPUs / Processors

heatsink: Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

memory 4GB (2 x 2GB) times 2 for 8GB: Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory


pc case: Newegg.com - Thermaltake Xaser VI VG4000BWS Black / Red Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

or the more expensive: Newegg.com - Thermaltake Xaser VI VG4000BWS Black / Red Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

i want the case for the best air circulation and cooling since i will be doing heavy 3D renders and cant decide between the two.


video card: evga 768MB 8800 Ultra Superclocked (already own)

sound card: already own

hard drive: already own two

dvd burner drive: already own


not sure what else i need...


thank you, Yuriy.

Looks good man

I would go with a 1KW PSU... but that's just because I like to have tons of leeway... That one will work perfectly.

I wish I was building a machine like that

Way more than enough power to supply that system. 1 KW!?! Please read the Power Supply thread if you are serious.

I personally would get another case, but cases are really all about personal taste. There are plenty of other cases that cool much better for the price. Also, are you planning on SLi'ing? If not then get the DS3-L or IP35-E motherboards. Same performance, but much cheaper without all the SLi stuff.

hmm i may go with the Xaser case

Newegg.com - ASUS P5K SE LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

how is that motherboard instead of the SLI one? it is pretty cheap so i can save a bit...

also this motherboard on newegg says it supports DDR2 1066. will it run DDR2 800 on it?

That motherboard looks great. Yes, it will support DDR800.
*curious, what program are you going to be animating/rendering with?

I'd say stick with the G SKills
2 reasons, first, tighter timings @ stock
second, still cheaper even with corsairs MIR (only applies for sets of 2+)

I recommend the Corsair 650tx psu. It will provide more than enough power for your system.
