3d modeling and rendering build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am working on a new build for faster rendering and modeling. This is a full build!

The budget is go stay under $2000 and I live in the US.

The rig will be used for blender modeling and renderings, photoshop, illustrator and revit. The main software will be blender and revit.

 

Any help with possible builds to take full advantage of my budget would be fantastic!

You need a cpu with a ton of cores and threads, so Ryzen would be your go to!

I'm sure someone can find some problem with this, but this is what I have picked out. It's just based on parts that would actually affect the build. It doesn't have a gpu either. I didn't check in depth for compatibility, so OP, if you even consider this, you might want to do that. I also light experience in 3D modelling and rendering, but I do understand that from common knowledge that you need fast storage, a generous amount of cpu cores, and quite a bit of ram. Take this build with a grain of salt.

PC partpicker + case total ~$2020 (sorry that it is over budget) Now the reason that I included a 1080ti, is because in many scenarios a GPU is faster than a CPU in cycles rendering in blender, the main disadvantage of  a GPU is that a GPU has a very limited amount of VRAM the 1080 ti (thankfully) has 11GB of VRAM allowing for it to process fairly complex renders.


In search of the future, new tech, and exploring the universe! All under the cover of anonymity!

will handle anything you throw at it,completely ssd based so no hdd lag for rendering/scratch disk,its 34$ more than your 2k budget.

So i went a little over my budget for the rig but this is what i came up with thanks to your suggestion. Let me know what you think! I put in a 850W power supply so i can add a 2nd 1080ti down the road.
