Time to upgrade my other
computer big time.
I usually dont upgrade computers until really necessary (e.g. when they start failing on me), but, i have a very large client project that's demanding powerful hardware, and fortunately, the costs are covered! woohoo!
Im not sure if i will be building an entirely new PC and leaving the one i have now OR
replacing and gutting it out. I guess it depends how many parts i can use?
So far, besides the ones listed below, i can reuse the following:
Case, Hard drives, maybe power supply? graphics card. PROCESSOR
Im currently using the good ol' Q6600, its fantastic, i love it, but its too slow.

Intel 2600! at $290
Now here's where i need your help, MOBO, RAM, and CPU Fan.Motherboard
I need a motherboard that works well with the 2600.
Most importantly, i dont want any stupid limit (e.g. 4GB) on the RAM i can use - like the gay mobo i have now...
Something with up to 16GB RAM or unlimited would be perfect.RAM
I know this is sad, but my other computer is still using DDR2. I think i should use DDR3 with the new chip.
Doesnt need a lot - the software i use is very processor demanding. I save all my precious RAM for my main computer, the wacom one, photoshop machine.CPU FAN
At the moment im using the arctic cooling freezer 7 pro. Shall I get another one? (probably should that way i can just build an entirely separate computer) what recommendations?POWER SUPPLY
Im open to case suggestions too.CASE
open to suggestions, if necessary.
Not for gaming! this is a pure CAD, 3D Modeling, Rendering, animation machine!!
