Workstation + Gaming Build

Hi guys,

 

I am a student reading Design at university, and I new a pretty powerful setup for my student and personal projects. 

 

Here is what I do with the system:

- Gaming (CS:GO, Battlefield V, Cities Skylines mostly)

- Work (Vray for Sketchup, Premiere Pro, Adobe CC)

 

My budget is about 2000€ ± 10%

 

What should I get?

- Intel i7 8700K (new/used), i7 9700K (new), or even AMD Ryzen

- GTX 1080Ti (used), RTX 2080 (new)

 

I don't really have a clue about AMD Ryzen, and hesitate a bit since Gaming performance seems to be worse. On the otherhand, 8C 16T sounds sweet for rendering. Equally, I struggle with my decision to buy either a GTX 1080Ti for about 600€ (used, with 1 yr warranty left), or a new RTX 2080 (MSI Gaming Trio). What would you guys recommend for my gaming/rendering needs?

ryzen with 1080ti for a more budget oriented build

But is Ryzen up to the task for rendering? Is it as good as Intel for Premiere Pro?

premiere pro favours intel but ryzen does still do good for its cost. and if you have budget constraints or just looking for something more reasonable. ryzen is the way to go.

10 cores of zen power,good looking case,great psu,and rtx 2080 to leverage rtx in your designing projects. If you get a used rtx card it would be more cheaper,It also has a nvme m.2 drive for using as a fast cache/scratch disk to render projects,designs etc and maximise throughput to cpu and your gpu. If you want rgb you can get the msi sli plus x399 board instead it has the same black ascetic with rgb. The ascetic of this build is gonna be full black.

Wow, don't even think as far as the last Gen Ryzen X CPUs... great suggestion! Can you elaborate why you went with the RTX 2080 as opposed to the GTX 1080Ti

Threadripper isn't last gen,even gen 2 ryzen is just a rebrand of gen one ryzen with a apu(aka integrated graphics) in built in it. There is like a 5% ipc improvement.

 

I went with a RTX because you can leverage that ray tracing performance and capability in your designs, a new 1080ti costs the same as a RTX2080 so why not let the RTX card help you with your job.
