My System Specs

Default Building a new Workstation

So guys,

I have a 4000$ budget. This computer will be used for a lot of AutoDesk projects and such. I hope to have it going in 4 years from now so i have a good working workstation during college/university/in the workplace

I need all peripherals included. I want 2 monitors, and i want a mechanical keyboard. Cooler Master CM Stryker is a required Case. I need the handle.

The components i've though of so far are:

3930K/4930K
32GB RAM
4TB of HDD space
Quadro K2000/K4000 (Haven't decided.)
256/512GB SSD scratch disk.
I also want the board to have an MSATA Port of caching.

Thanks guys! :D


-Darren

I'm a bit confused about the caching requirement. Why not just get 2 x 256GB SSD with OS & apps on one of them and use the other as scratch?

That sounds like a better idea.

Thanks for the reply. It never crossed my mind to do something like that.
