  1. fusion 360 and Solidworks primarily
  2. I am building a new PC and I feel like there is no point in buying a previous generation graphics card with the new releases. However, I am unsure whether I should try to get a 3070 or 6800. I want this computer to be good for both CAD and gaming, and I am not sure what would be better for CAD. Gaming benchmarks seem to be clear, but I am unsure what would work better for CAD workloads, especially since Nvidia has always been better in that category while the new Radeon cards are looking quite impressive.
  3. Do you think this is worth the $80 price difference?
  4. I am building a computer that will be aimed to have the best value CAD and Gaming performance. I was originally planning on getting the 3070 due to Nvidia's record as the better gpu for CAD. Is this still relevant with this new release?
  5. Budget (including currency): $1700 USD Country: US Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: CAD/CAM, Multiplayer Gaming Parts List: CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 3.8 GHz 8-Core Processor ($449 when released) CPU Cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 50.5 CFM CPU Cooler ($89.90 @ Amazon) Motherboard: Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (WI-FI) ATX AM4 Motherboard ($179.99 @ Amazon) Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory ($111.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Crucial MX500 500 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($
  6. I am in need of a motherboard that will be compatible with the new Ryzen 5000 series processors. It seems quite difficult to find a good quality X570 or B550 for a reasonable price. I want something that is going to be compatible with new technology like PCI-E gen 4 and USB-C but sites like pcpartpicker and newegg do not make it super clear if the motherboards they list are of good quality. I do not currently have plans to overclock.
  7. How would you rate the Samsung 970 Evo 500GB? I am trying not to spend much more than I already have lined up in this build.
  8. Thank you, I've modified the list to include the corsair RMx 2018 750W
  9. Budget (including currency): Not entirely certain Country: US Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Various Games, CAD (Solidworks, Fusion 360, NX) 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): PCPartPicker Part List: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/W2sRBc CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 3.8 GHz 8-Core Processor ($449 when released) CPU Cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 50.5 CFM CPU Cooler ($89.90 @ Am
  10. Is this consistent with other programs like NX and AutoCAD? I am not entirely sure what I will use as my primary software in the future.
  11. Trying to pick parts for my first PC build and I want something that can effectively handle CAD programs like Solidworks while also performing well for gaming. It is my interpretation that a powerful CPU is the best for this purpose. Of the new Ryzen 5000 series CPUs, I am leaning towards the 5800x. How would you expect this to compare to a 3900x or an intel 10700k, since they are all around the same price point.
  12. My budget is $1000-1200 and I am in the United States. Is there an advantage to going Intel or AMD for my goals?
  13. I recently decided to build a pc for the first time, so I am not very knowledgeable on all of the parts. I intend to use the PC for both gaming as well as 3D CAD and testing software. I am unsure what cpus are the best of both worlds since I can only find the best of each use separately. Should I wait to see what’s coming from AMD soon?
