I am in the process of specing a new machine which I will have built for me and am not fully sure of my specs, Here they are [ so far ]
CPU Intel i9 7960x [ was originally thinking of the AMD Threadripper ] but I guess i'm pretty much a dyed in the wool Intel guy.
Main drive Intel DC P3600 2Tb.
Board Asus x299 Deluxe.
Memory 128 Gb Corsair Dominator 3200.
PSU Corsair HX 1000w.
Storage, am torn between a 2nd DC P or a Samsung 960 Pro 2Tb would also like a traditional HDD such as 6Tb WD Gold.
Cooling will be Corsair Hydro [ not decided on model yet ] It's the GPU that proves a dilemma, do I go with 2 x 1080 Ti's or 2 x Quadro p 2000's The primary purpose of the machine is 3D Cad and Video editing Gaming will be the secondary use.
The software used is Avid Media Composer Ultimate [ Video ] and Siemens NX [3d CAD ] Budget will be £8000, at a push £9000.
any suggested revisions most welcome.
