I am looking to build a computer that will run autodesk 3dsmax with no problems. If some one could help me build something around $1k or less, that would be very appreciated. I know I want an i7 , ssd, and a really good graphic card for the software. Newegg would be preferred since they ship quickly. Thanks for any input
US$1000? Sadly that does not match up with your post's title or the first sentence of your post.
What kind of animation/rendering do you do with 3DMax? is this for school, or a business (or going out on your own home-business)? This may help with recommendations for you.
thanks for the reply. This is for school I will use at home. I decided I don't need a $1200 computer for something I'll barely use. Could you recommend me a dell on ebay or anywhere that will have the graphics card that will work with it ? I know I want an i7. 800-900 price range sounds reasonable. thanks
Just to put things in perspective for you, I went and bought a $1500 laptop that barely squeaks along with full 2012. You're going to need a computer that costs a little bit more than $8-900 for doing something as intensive as 3dmax.
SWith your budget, you'll just end up with a "just enough but not great" laptop: times are tough, so I understand why you want to keep the cost down.
RAM in excess of 4Gig and a processor at i5 level or higher should be the priority: the rest will be determined by your budget. Good luck.
So I went ahead and bought these parts for around $850
Intel i7 3770K
I actually cancelled the 1TB 7200rpm hard drive, and got a 64gb SSD instead. So saved $20, but ill be adding another hdd at some point down the line in case I need it.
I know this post is way out of date... but ... i felt the need to reply.
Dean is right, 64gb is not enough for an OS.
I wouldnt even consider installing windows 7 (i dont have win8) on a drive under 128gb. The lst two PC's ive built for work sit with around 15-20gb free space on them (using 128gb SSD Drives).
I decided after my last built i would be now using 160GB or 256GB drives in the future.
