Hello,
I already have a GTX 670 running with an old quad core with 4 gb of RAM, and i am about to change all except for the video card for using Houdini and Nuke.
I though about buying a core i7 3930k processor with an asus rampage and 32 bg of RAM.
Is it a good combo? Otherwise, what's your suggestions.
Thanks,

Mattin

The bad thing is the Quaddros are so old now - they're like four or five years old. There's the new K5000 which is Keppler based but that will set you back a good $2,700. :ouch:

I will stay with my 670 which has SLI, Once i need more power i will think of a Quadro i guess. Or maybe buy 2 more 670s and put them in an SLI chain, what do you think?
 

GTX is a thing, Quadro and Tesla another thing.
