Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I want to build a dual computer setup in one case that has two full motherboards but I can't find a case or anyone on YouTube that has done it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can have that with just one build though depending of what you do with your work computer.

So the Intel version :

 

 

 

And the AMD one :

 

 

 

No dual setup but should be way overkill for gaming. And it will handle video editing and CGI in 4k.

What software? Does it use multiple GPUs?

What's your budget/country for everything?

What's your monitor set up?

You're going to want 2 difference towers, A for noise, B for separating the heat generating components.

Bryce 7 is available to both Mac users and Windows users. Animators with a Mac will need at least 700 MHz (1 GHz or more recommended)


How old are those software suites? I can't find any info on weather they support modern open CL or Cuda even, it looks like they are entirely CPU bound, and I don't know how many CPU cores they need.
 

Is that really all you need to run? What hardware is in your work PC? Why not like...use blender or something?

The streaming PC doesn't need to be more than like $1200-1400 for an R7 3700X + RX 5700


It appears that lightwave supports a ton of CPU cores at least, Threadripper 3000 is coming out very soon
