Hi, I am a little bit new here and I would like to ask if the parts listed below are good enough for a fast rendering machine. Total amount = around 6800 euros

2 x Intel Xeon X5680 3.33GHz (Westmere) (Socket 1366)

GTX 690 4096MB PCI-Express GDDR5 Graphics Card

EVGA Classified SR-2 Intel 5520 (Socket 1366) DDR3 Motherboard (270-WS-W555-E1)

G.Skill RipJawsZ 32GB (8x4GB) DDR3 PC3-17000C9 2133MHz Quad Channel Kit (F3-17000CL9Q2-32GBZH)

I am waiting for your answer and I would like to know if its worth it. I will start learning special effects and post production stuffs. Until know I have learn 3D modeling and texturing and know I will make a small 3D designing company and this is why I need a fast rendering machine.

Thanks you

Intel Xeon E5-2670 is better for rendering.
It has 8 cores and is based on sandy bridge architecture.
