    I don't know how the P5000 compete with the gamer market GFX1080 ti (which are good choices for RC).I would definitely add much more storage... You never have enough with RC (the cache fills up very quickly)... Take at least 3x2TB SSD. Put the cache on one of them and the projects on the others. 128GB RAM sounds like something reasonable.

    Thank you Jonathan. We are going for an EVO PRO NVME 2 TB as you suggested. Addition SSDs will be put, as well as a NAS 14TB for backup for all the workstations in the office.

     

    What troubles me is the 3-way graphics Cards. Maybe some input from admins and other users could be very helpful.

    Hi Thanasis,

    have you not looked at the specific threads yet?

    Bottom line is Gamer Cards like Jonathan suggested. 2 is ok, the thirds adds only very little.

    I would use 4 SSDs since then you can get one for OS, cache, source files and project files.

    Maybe RTX 2080Ti? It should be cheaper than P6000, but much more CUDA cores...

    How many photos are we talking about in single RC project?

    You should consider a CPU with a lot of threads.  90% of the processing time is on the CPU, you could use one quadro and use the rest of the budget on a great CPU.
