Just yesterday my GPU died, a GTX 760. I can confirm cuz there is artifacting and windows is not recognizing it.
I haven't upgraded my PC since 2014, I just can't.
Currently it's back to GT 610 (oof)
I'm learning VFX production stuff and it can't even handle the viewport of Maya and Substance Painter (3D apps)(15-30 FPS).
It's the last year of my course so don't want anything sort of high-end-ish like a 1050 Ti. Because there is a high chance I'll be moving soon.
So just for this year, will a GT 1030 be able to handle 3D stuff? I've seen people play Far Cry 5 with it, runs exactly like my 760 did.
And no, I'll not be rendering with it. Just enough to handle the viewport.
