Hello,

 

I am planning to buy a pre-built PC MSI Aegis 3 8RC (Specs listed below). I am a 3D Designer particularly using Maya the most. My current Laptop has 920M Nvidia and 8GB RAM. And it's a pain in the butt ngl. I need a PC that would satisfy my needs when it comes to working with 3D. And I also need the PC to be able to handle components that need to be retopologized (consisting of millions of verts). The current PC has a price of 1,430 EUR and that's my peak on the cost bar.

Welcome to the LTT forums!

 

On this forum, people will generally never recommend that you buy a prebuilt PC.

 

Can you build your own PC? If yes, what's your budget and location?

Hold right up.

SO-DIMM? What motherboard are they using?

That's typically laptop memory.

 

Edit: I also dislike the storage configuration they have there. 1 HDD, 1 nvme and 2 2.5" SSDs? Does "Auto switch" mean raid zero? It's just so weird


I had a dream where Linus picked me up. It was wonderful.

Typical marketing BS to confuse people into thinking that this product is packed with some "Super exclusive" features.

I think you'd be limited by this system due to the ram, I know workstations eat that stuff enough to make Chrome look lite,

try to go for 32G

For the GPU (Im not in the EU so I dunno what the market for GPUs actually is) at that much you should be able to do better, 1060 6gb in a 1400$ seems a bit of a stretch. I don't know how GPU intensive you work is but even so you should be able to get better

Generally think you could do better for the money than that system, but again I'm not on your side of the pond
