If you really want a kick *** rendering/cad workstation, I would be looking at server MoBos and buffered memory. I can't go into too much detail simply because I don't know enough, but to give you an idea, here are some basic parts (not brand names or anything) to look at:

5100 or 5400 series chipset, dual processor board (socket 771)
8gb (or so) of fully buffered ddr2-667 ECC memory
8800GT video card
2x wolfdale or harpertown quad core CPUs (socket 771)

That's just a thought...I don't know enough about your budget and the workstation market to go much further than that...
thanx you have been very usefull
