affordable GPU for rendering and 3d modeling

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello friends

I was planning to build a midrange workstation for animation and rendering

I know the basics of parts but i don't dence of clocking, overclocking,RAM timing, voltage and more.

i have searched a bit of workstation for 3d and 4K rendering and thought to get with this configuration-

 

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor

Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory

Storage: Western Digital Blue SN550 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive

Storage: Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

 

still i am unable to find a perfect mid-range gpu, motherboard, and power supply

i was looking for GeForce GPU but the rtx 2070 and greater are beyond my budget

if anyone knows the perfect affordable gpu for rendering please suggest

evga 2060 ko has compute performance rivaling the 2070 due to using a 2080 die. ~300 usd, best bang for your buck for compute/rendering workloads


topics i need help on:

Spoiler

 

 

my "oops i bought intel right before zen 3 releases" build

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600 (placeholder)

GPU: Gigabyte 980ti Xtreme (also placeholder), deshroud w/ generic 1200rpm 120mm fans x2, stock bios 130% power, no voltage offset: +70 core +400 mem 

Memory: 2x16gb GSkill Trident Z RGB 3600C16, 14-15-30-288@1.45v

Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix X570-E Gaming

Cooler: Noctua NH-D15S w/ white chromax bling
OS Drive: Samsung PM981 1tb (OEM 970 Evo)

Storage Drive: XPG SX8200 Pro 2tb

Backup Storage: Seagate Barracuda Compute 4TB

PSU: Seasonic Prime Ultra Titanium 750W w/ black/white Cablemod extensions
Case: Fractal Design Meshify C Dark (to be replaced with a good case shortly)

basically everything was bought used off of reddit or here, only new component was the case. absolutely nutty deals for some of these parts, ill have to tally it all up once it's "done" :D

You can render on an nVidia 8800 GT, if you're patient enough 🤪

 

But until we know your budget, it'll be hard to suggest something


So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

For the GPU alone, or for the entire system?

i think the old 1080's are probably cheap enough these days and would be decent

i was thinking of 1080ti but heard 2ndhand rumours about its threshold problem

what you say?

if i get $800 for gpu alone it won't be the matter to discuss from the first
