The time has finally come to leave our mac pros behind. We want to expand our use of Octane in C4D, so we have been looking at 4 GPU PC options. Does anyone here have experience with these? It looks like Boxx and a couple others have some options, but a custom built system seems to be the best value right now. How does a workstation based on these parts sound? CASE/MOTHERBOARD/PSU SUPERMICRO SYS-7047GR-TRF (4U Rackmountable / Tower Server Barebone Dual LGA 2011 Intel C602 DDR3 1600/1333/1066/800) Dual 10 core CPU Intel Xeon E5-2690 v2 Ivy Bridge-EP 3.0GHz LGA 2011 130W Server Processor BX80635E52690V2 4 x GTX Titan Video Cards EVGA 06G-P4-3793-KR GeForce GTX TITAN BLACK Superclocked 6GB 32GB RAM SSD Cache Drive SSD System Drive Project Drive 1TB (Western Digital WD VelociRaptor 10k HD) Windows 7 (existing external RAID) If I could find some 6GB 780ti cards, I would go with those over the Titans, but I can't seem to find them anywhere. We may do some GPU render nodes based on a stripped down version of this too (basically 1 HD, and a lot cheaper CPU). Is Windows 7 still the best choice?
