Question Need build for Fusion360 and more

May 2, 2019
Hey guy.
I wanna buy a new PC.
Im gonna use it for:

and Photoshop.

My budget is arround 3000-3500$
but ofc i dont wanna pay for for a build that is overkill:)
I need to be able to connect 2 screens.

I also dont know if i should go for an RTX gpu or a P2000.

Let me know if u have a build idea for me:)


(btw im Danish so sorry if i misspelled something:) )
From what I was able to find, Autodesk CAD software likes top speed over many threads, so I think you'll need to go the Intel route...

That being said, you have plenty of options and depends on what type of work you'll really be making here. If you're looking to produce professional stuff, then you'll need ECC RAM when using CPU computation and the P2000 for pure GPU rendering of shapes and forms with CAD stuff (maybe Photoshop as well with CUDA).

So, that being said and hoping to not be so off the mark, I'd say you'll need a used Xeon CPU instead of a new i9 that has good turbo speed. I'm not very familiar with the used Xeon market, but you could google around for a good place to get them from, including eBay. You may need to buy the whole platform in one go, as well, since securing ECC RAM new is expensive as hell. This would drive down the cost significantly.

Something like this:

In the case I'm wrong about the ECC RAM for the CPU, I'd still keep the P2000 as it should perform a tad better with the pro drivers in CAD. For that, a "regular" i9 9900K would be plenty and more than enough for pretty much everything you need. The platform (including cooling) should come around ~1300GBP on its own?

Well, you have good options on how to build around the i9 9900K, but make sure you slap 64GB RAM into it right away.

Personally I'd go with a 9920x and 64 GB of non ecc ram. Try to squeeze in a 2080 ti if you can afford it because that is the best workstation GPU without going for a high end quadro.

Here is the part list I quickly made. You can pick out your own case:
PCPartPicker Part List: CPU: Intel - Core i9-9920X 3.5 GHz 12-Core Processor ($1199.89 @ B&H) CPU Cooler: be quiet! - Dark Rock Pro 4 50.5 CFM CPU Cooler ($88.09 @ Amazon) Motherboard: MSI - X299 GAMING PRO CARBON ATX LGA2066 Motherboard ($229.99 @ Newegg) Memory: G.Skill - Sniper X 64 GB (4 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory ($360.98 @ Newegg) Storage: Intel - 660p Series 1 TB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive ($109.89 @ OutletPC) Video Card: EVGA - GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11 GB XC GAMING Video Card ($1199.99 @ B&H) Power Supply: Corsair - RMx (2018) 850 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($119.99 @ Amazon) Total: $3308.82 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-05-02 12:58 EDT-0400

You might go over budget depending on what case you pick and if you want more storage, but you can probably get a 9900k and gain a lot more headroom. You could also only get 32 GB of ram but I'm not sure what ram usage Autodesk software has, so it's up to you.

thx for input! i will keep in mind when i build it:)

But to be clear! I should buy a RTX rather than a Quadro? and Ram is a good thing:)
