That specification looks like for the highest end of 4K gaming.
, did a Google search and saw this topic Nvidia Geforce GTX 980 8GB GDDR5 Allegedly Inbound â€“ Landing in November
Unfortunately that was over a year ago, and it still looks like it's rumour and waiting for NVIDIA, some day.
..mainly be used for Lumion.
Then the GTX 980 Ti is much preferred over any FirePro.
..We are trying to get the most powerful setup that will last us a while
Unfortunately you will not be able to take advantage of the three 980 Ti's in SLI for Lumion. Lumion is not designed to access multiple GPU's.
I understand from some user setups, it is possible to configure two separate GPU's with two monitors, and using Lumion with one of the GPU's, whilst the other can be used for other tasks (in a non-SLI arrangement).
to use Lumion for professional, texture & and geometry intensive animations.
If you consider you will be working on scenes that are Very Complex (refer: LUMION 6: System requirements
.) then you could go to the Titan X which Morten mentions. You would loose a little on speed but gain on onboard VRAM memory.
What tremainr mentions re RAM is appropriate. 32GB of RAM would be preferred, or 64GB, but you can always easily add a further 32GB so long as the sticks and motherboard are configured now to allow for 64GB.
So, to throw it back to you, something not the Dell first mentioned, due likely price and hardware, but something less than the Alienware.
Please note that the above does not mean that I or Act-3D endorse specific products. We are unable to offer any guarantees regarding the expected performance in Lumion with the above-mentioned hardware, and you cannot hold us liable for any costs or damages incurred if you purchase hardware based on our posts on this forum or via email.
