I got a gift for my birthday of an intel i7-990x and I was planning on building a new machine around it but coming from the gaming world I am unsure what work station components to use with this. I am going to be using the new computer with solid works CFD, FEA etc so while doing research on the systems I stumbled across CUDA GPU computations. Searched for a video card in my price range and found the Nvidia Quadro 4000 seemed to fit the bill. I am looking for suggestions for mother boards, power supplies memory and other components to make the most out of my combination without breaking the bank. I was looking at the DX58SO2 motherboard but was wondering if there was anything that was better for stability/ computation power. The main reason I am asking is because I have used several different memory companies and I seen to always end up with memory errors due to hardware degradation after several months of use.
