CPU based render PC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency): 1000$ (USD)

Country: Azerbaijan (will order most parts from Amazon US)

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: 3DS Max (modeling, designing, rendering), Autocad, and very light work in Photoshop, etc.

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

 

I never built a PC before ( but watched tons of videos) so I can make some mistakes in little things.

I won't build it myself, but want handpick all its parts:

I am interiors designer, working on Autodesk 3DS Max, and rendering via "Corona Renderer", which is CPU only. 

So I need very good CPU, good amount RAM for 3DS Max not to crash on complex scenes and average gpu for working on these scenes. Case doesn't matter, but much appreciated too.

 

What I plan:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700x (want to max out CPU for given budget)

Cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock Slim 35.14 CFM CPU Cooler [pcpartpicker's advice, can be changed]

Motherboard: MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX ATX AM4 [pcpartpicker's advice, can be changed]

RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 [pcpartpicker's advice, can be changed]

Storage: Samsung 970 Evo M.2 512gb [just some storage for OS and apps, for 99$] + some HDD for data storage

GPU: XFX Radeon RX 570 8 GB Video Card [pcpartpicker's cheapes advice, I don't need beast gpu]

Power: Corsair RM (2019) 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply [again, pcpartpicker]

---950$ for a build without case

 

Please advise how can I improve this list, I accept all comments.

 

level of my knowledge: I know that CPU can be bottleneck of a good GPU, but can it be vice versa? Can this mentioned GPU be bottleneck for this CPU while CPU-only render? I don't think so.

wow, thank you both, guys!

Keep in mind the Ryzen 9 3900x is way faster than the 3700x. 12 cores vs 8, 24 threads vs 16. 

If you really want to go for max, wait for the new Ryzen 4000 CPUs.

Yeap, I got crazy when I saw Ryzen 9, I thought it was impossible to fit in this budget, but you did it magically.

 

Is there any eta for Ryzen 4000?

Oh if you just want to squeeze in the most powerful CPu, you could even get a 3950x if you really pinch... 

Actually now that I think of it, they'll be announced by CES for sure and released sometime in early Q4, probably October.

Here's a $1000 3950x build. GPU's literally just there for display output. Theoretically it's two Ryzen 7 3700x chips.

Dears, thanks for all your inputs.

I decided to go with Ryzen 9 3900X, as I need some budget for some midrange GPU to be able to work in 3D scenes.

 

Here is list I want to stick with after all. Please comment, do I need any more cooler than one with CPU and ones with case, or do I need something more than this?
