ML oriented build?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, 

 

I'm thinking of building my first PC with a machine learning/computer vision emphasis, hopefully for <$1400. Through poking around PCPartPicker for a bit and asking a few friends, I came up with this build, which I think will handle ML applications well since the GTX 1070 has a fairly high CUDA score. 

 

Anyone have any advice or alternative builds for an ML focused, Linux PC? The System76 Thelio looks sweet but is way outside of my budget. 

 

Thanks!

that liquid cooler is way overkill for a cpu that can't overclock. Or get something like a ryzen 2700x

 

Id get a 2070 for that price, its about the same price and a good amount faster.

Not really interested in overclocking, so would this be a better build? Replaced the 1070 with a 2070 and added a regular CPU fan instead of the liquid cooler. 

 

Thanks for your help.

Wouldn't a 1080ti be better for cuda? It's about the same price as a 2070, so if you don't need the raytracing...

well the 20xx cards have tensor cors that can help in some ml uses. And your not getting a 1080ti for 500 unless your getting used.

Yea that looks better, Id get a 2700x or a 9700 for the cpu though.
