Hi, I'm new to C4D and ePMV. My current desktop is Win 7 64bit, dual core CPU i5-2500K at 3.3 and 3.6 GHz, with 16GB RAM. I was playing around with 2plv: when I load the whole viral particle, with "Atoms" representation, it took forever; even if it finally got loaded, it froze when I tried to change the atoms' scale. So, I'm thinking about upgrading my system. Can anyone recommend some rigs for a budget under $2500 (just CPU + motherboard + video card)? Mainly for modeling and rendering of macromolecules/viruses, and some animation as well.

This one looks really sexy: ... -the-bank/, but a bit over my budget.

Here are some nice ones too: ... r-buy.html

I'm kinda debating on dual Xeon cpu vs single i7 CPU. Any suggestions? Do I need a killer graphic card? (BTW, when my pc froze, I found that C4D ate >95% of my 16GB RAM, while the total CPU usage was only ~33%).

A million thanks!
