Recommended PC Configuration for CG Artists – May 2011

Back to blogging again! I had moved in to a new apartment and my ISP turned out to be too inefficient with the shifting process, making me wait for more that 20 days to get the connection shifted to my new place. And on the professional side, I was pretty much occupied with the current feature productions happening in the studio.

But in the mean time, I got a chance to dig in to the latest computer hardware out there, to help out my friend with a new configuration for home. My search stumbled across a few components which I felt would do justice to the kind of work we deal with, on a day to day basis.

Hence thought of sharing the configuration with you in case some of you find it useful. So here it goes…

Intel Core i7 2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz approx 16500 INR

Asus P8P67 PRO approx 12600 INR

Gskill Sandy Bridge 16GB 1600 DDR3 approx 10000 INR

Corsair 1000HX approx 15000 INR

Cooler Master CM690 II Advanced approx 5500 INR

2 x Dell Professional 2311H 23-inch widescreen monitor 26000 INR

MSI N580GTX  Lightning approx 30000 INR

2 x WD 1TB 6Gbps SATA3 approx 9400 INR

Corsair CSSD F80GBP2 BRKT 80GB SSD force series approx 10000 INR

Total approx 1,34,700 INR
