I need to build a dual processor Opteron or Xeon for CAD work. Inventor/Solidworks will be used frequently with Maya, Bryce, 3dstudio, Photoshop, and video editing programs used sometimes. It doesn't need to be the absolute best, but was wondering what you guys suggested? This is what i was looking at:
Asus NCCH-DL $245.00
2.8GHz Nocona EMT-64 $245.00
2.8GHz Nocona EMT-64 $245.00
Forton 550w EPS12v PSU $91.00
2 gigs of ram
Dual raptors
I was planning on the NCCH-DL cuz i could *gasp* overclock.
I have read Opterons are better in Inventor, is that true? If so what processor is equivelant to a 2.8 Nocona?
Thanks
