I am planning to build a custom PC that I will use for architecture/design related projects. Specifically, I need to be able to 3D render quickly (with VRAY for 3DS Max & Rhino for example), multi-task with various design software programs and animate and edit videos. I am not knowledgeable about computer hardware AT ALL so would love an advice about the build. My budget is around $1,300. So far, the list below outlines the specifications that I have researched that might fit my purpose. Please, help me out! Would you recommend going with these specs? Is there anything I can save on? Or maybe I should invest in something else?
Intel Core i7-4770K
16 GB 1600MHz DDR3 (I haven't decided on brand yet)
NVIDIA GTX 660 1020MHz
120gb (something that would cost me no more than $150)
I am not sure I will need a water cooler either. Is it necessary?
Any thoughts/advice on this list & the build overall would be greatly appreciated!
