Better do a home build (yes, E5-2609 is old – it is Sandy Bridge 4core/4thread CPU) – a regular Haswell i5 would destroy it.

You would be better off with Z87 lga1150 mobo, 4770K CPU with decent heatsink (H100i, Noctua U14S or bequiet Dark Rock Pro 2, i.e.), 32GB RAM, 250GB Samsung 840 EVO, 2TB HDD, and a regular GeForce GPU (that’s assuming you need one at all).

If you can afford it, go for x79 mobo and 4930K CPU.

As for GPU, Quadro is only necesary for CAD and 3D work to get better viewport performance. It will not give you any advantage in AE, Photoshop and similar software over a 3x cheaper GTX770 of 2x cheaper GTX780.

Also, I bet you don’t need a huge Full Tower system sitting in your room so I would suggest building a fast little beast with mATX mobo.

BTW, what’s the price tag on that system you are looking at?

Agree with rmpumper, you wouldn’t get far with that CPU, it is outdated with a poor performance.

If you want to go crazy and have the money get a E5-2687W v2 or E5-2690 v2.

Otherwise take rmpumpers’ advice and go with i7 4770k.

no, the consumer cards are pretty good for that :) and the 780 is about the best you can get (besides TITAN)

afaik, the big advantage of the professional gpus is the driver and the support you get along with it. the quadros shall perform better in 3d applications but nowadays the difference is not that high to justify the price difference.

When it comes to rendering be sure to check the upgrade processors in the market because thats what makes the time house i am using dell 3521 i bought it because of battery backup its awesome when you going somewhere else and these machines will give you extra time to work. :)

cheers
