  1. My First Forum On CGarchitech.com (Awesome Site It Is) Currently, I Have A Good System But I'm Not Gettin' Satisfaction in 3Dsmax VRay... Current System: CPU: AMD Opteron 6212 (x2) Motherboard: ASUS KGPE-D16 (Pretty BIG) Memory : Kingston 8 GB (Nothing Special simple One) HardDisk: WD 2 TB Graphics Card : Quadro 600 (That's the Problem Maybe) N Other Accessories Problem: I am Not Getting Performance in 3dsmax (V-Ray), 3Dsmax is My Everything (Primary Software) , Im getting too low fps... I Switched In Every Graphics Mode (Dx11, Open GL, Nitrous, etc.), But No Sucssess Now I want to Upgrade this or build a New one System: I Reserched & I am thinking of buying and QUADRO K4000 (3GB)...... Guys!!! ,... Do You Think It will solve My Problem??? And I am buying this from my emergency savings so pls Help Me..... I dont want to waste my money..... Pls Suggest me what is Problem???? Thanx In ADVance
  2. Dear All, I am upgrading my PC mainly for 3DS Max and Vray rendering. I am not sure whether to go for i7 7700k or i7 8700k. As I searched on the net i7 7700k has 4 cores and higher clock frequency. i7 8700k has lower base clock frequency but 6 cores. I am not looking at over clocking the processers. As per my understanding, i7 8700k would be more beneficial to 3DS Max and Vray as they can take advantage of 6 cores. Please let me know if I am correct. What should be the wattage of Power Supply for the below configuration? Intendend Configuration: Processor: i7 8700k RAM: 16 GB (Will add 16 GB more next month) Graphics Card: GeForce GTX 1050 TI 4 GB OC Thanks, Laram
  3. Hi, i am an architect and work mainly with 3ds max,v-ray and photoshop.i want to built a workstation for a price range of around $1800(excluding monitor,keyboard or mouse price). right now i am considering the following configuration: 1.processor: intel core i7-4790k 1600mhz processor 2.graphics card: Asus GTX970 4GBDDR5II OC Strix Edition 3.SanDisk Extreme PRO 240GB SSD 4.RAM- Corsair vengeance 16GB (2x8GB)DDR3 5.motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97M-D3H Intel Z97 Chipset 6.case:cooler master mastercase5 MCX-0005-KKN000 CPU Cabinet 7.power unit: Crosair CP-9020098-UK VS Series VS650 650Watt Power Supply Unit. I don't know much about workstation configuration but the above mentioned configuration was provided by friend who is currently using the same. But is it better to go for i7-5820k or anyother 6 core processor.if so what are the other part configuration which would support that processor It would be of great help if you could suggest a best configuration for the above mentioned softwares and around the price range of $1800. Thank you
  4. Hi everyone, Can someone please suggest a system configuration best suited 3D graphics for a budget of around 4,500 $. I mainly do rendering in corona,octane,arion,Vray, lighting & composting and software i use is (3DS Max, Photoshop,unreal engine,realflow), hence my requirement is a system that reduces the render time to the possible minimum.
  5. Typically the best value is found somewhere in the middle ground, but where exactly?; Which items are worth buying in bulk when starting to build a bang-for-buck home built renderfarm from scratch, with economical future expansion being a key consideration? Its far easier to compare apples with apples, but we have to look at the sum of the parts here. Starting from scratch, would you build many or few machines, and with what type/quality of components? If we put our heads together, we could probably save many people in this arch-viz community from investing in hardware set-ups that don't expand well or represent good value. A concept for a scale-able farm isn't always straightforward, for example, we can ask ourselves: (assuming that space and aesthetics are not a concern, but that good value raw render power is paramount) CPUs Considering the context of the overall hardware configuration: What presents better value computing capability, e.g. lots of i7s, multiple pairs of Xeons?; Bottom of the range, Middle, or Top? GPUs Considering the context of the overall hardware configuration: Discreet graphics are probably good enough - right? Probably depends on the motherboard? PSUs Considering the context of the overall hardware configuration: Lots of cheap ones, or one really powerful PSU?; Which makes more economic sense? MOTHERBOARDs Considering the context of the overall hardware configuration: Are two single Motherboards ultimately better value than one dual CPU board? SSDs Considering the context of the overall hardware configuration: One OS for every CPU/or two, does not seem very practical. CASEs Considering the context of the overall hardware configuration: One huge/or custom case or lots of separate boxes? AND... then there is COOLING as well! Finally, what is the best value private render farm solution you've seen? and/or propose? (The concept is key. The exact specs are secondary).
  6. With new techonolgies being updated on a monthly basis. I'm quite confused regarding hardware requirement and its effectiveness. Would you suggest me a workstation. I'll be running 3dmax,vray,Photoshop,Revit and Autocad for my architectural visualizations. BUDET - under 1500$
  7. Hi, i am looking on buying some new equipment, but the most urgent one should be a core i7 render node, meaning just for rendering tasks. Budget will be small, say $500 to $600. I read a comment from Dimitris Tolios in other post that this might be possible. If this is so, i will like to go for one of those.... I do not live in USA, but i always buy online from there on Amazon, or others, and i pay a transportation service to bring it here. So please give me recommendations based on US stores if possible. I have never built a system myself, but i am eager to do it. I have always bought brand computers, but now my budget for this is restrained. I will be buying new workstation in the near future, so in the meantime this render node will be working independently on rendering tasks that i will send from my old workstation. I work with 3ds Max. Thanks in advance, i hope to hear your suggestions or comments.

  9. Hello! It's pretty tough keeping up with all the hardware news and advice online! I went through this forum to find some information and I came up with a config I'm planning to get for around 2500£ (4000$). All I need is expert advice because I'm not as qualified as I wish I was! I'm planning to use 3DS Max 2011 Vray 2.0 After Effects CS6 Photoshop CS6 Illustrator CS6 Right now I'm suffering with my current 5 years old configuration: Intel Core 2Duo E8500 @3.16GHz 4GB RAM ATI RADEON HD 3850 Windows 7 Professional 64bits Here's what I have in mind: CPU: Intel Core i7-3930K Hexa-Core Processor 3.2 Ghz 12 MB Cache LGA 2011 Corsair Hydro Series H80 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler (CWCH80) Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 680 4096 MB GDDR5 Dual Dual-Link DVI/mHDMI/DP/SLI PRIMARY DISC: Seagate Momentus XT 750 GB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s 32 MB Cache 2.5 Inch Solid State Hybrid Drive SECONDARY DISC: Seagate Barracuda 7200 1 TB 7200RPM SATA 6 Gb/s NCQ 64MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive ASUS P9X79 DELUXE LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard Creative Sound Blaster Recon3D THX PCIE Fatal1ty Pro Sound Card Corsair HX Professional Series 850-Watt 80 Plus Certified Power Supply Compatible with Core i7 and Core i5 Corsair Obsidian Series Black 650D Mid Tower Computer Case Windows 7 Professional 64bits I was wondering if there's any overkill or incompatibilities? My main priority is to increase my render times, and being able to work with a high poly count on screen. Many thanks in advance for your advice! Best
  10. Hi everyone, I'm building up a pc for rendering and I'm looking for something middle range that won't be too costly but still gets the job done. Please note that this pc will be used or a year or so before moving the new 2011 socket and high end workstation cards. Processor - i7 2600k (overclocked at 4.4ghz) Mobo - Asus p8p67 (rev 3.1) Ram - Kingston 16gb (4 x 4gb) 1600mhz Heatsink - Coolermaster V6GT (with Arctic Silver 5) VGA - ATI Firepro v5800 PSU - Antec 750w Primary HD - 500gb (operating system 64 bit) Secondary HD - 2Tb Can anyone how have been using the overclocked 2600k tell me if this built is fine? I usually render for around 20 to 30 hours over a normal working week. And also if the heatsink I got is fine for these kind of frequency. Like I said, this pc is to be used until next year as I am aware that the overclocking will shorten it's lifespan. but if anyone can recommend me a better frequency, heatsink, mobo, etc to extend this lifespan by another year that would be really cool. Thanks. Stephane
