    The Owner Wants Me To Build A New Computer, Budget is $6,000 -$10,000.  What Should I Get?

    Cliff Debenedetto

      His exact words are "I would be comfortable spending $6,000, a little bit reluctant to spend $8,000 and you would have to convince me to spend $10,000 with a good case".  My current workstation is about 4-5 years old, I just upgraded to one of the lower end Solidworks recomended graphics cards and large assemblies were laggy at best.  I obviously want to get the best bang for my buck and something that screams, what is the order of importance of the components?  Are there any good resources or has anyone built a KILLER setup with a similar budget?  I've never built a computer from scratch.


      Thanks for your help :-)
