Well I am going to take some modeling and rendering classes, and ill be in the need to have decent workstation. I have around 2500 dollars.
I built a gaming pc (that I still use) and I know I need to spend a little bit more on the gpu than the cpu, but with this build I dont have a slight clue. Ill be using the most popular programs,but I will probably use maya more regularly. I dont intend to spent a lot of cash on storage since I already have an old ssd, and my case will be a mid size case.
I also dont know wether to buy an nvidia quadro or an amd firepro.
So I made up my mind now, I will getting a 4070k with a firepro but I still need a motherboard, In my gaming rig I use a gigabyte ud3h (wich is a very reliable motherboard), but I could get a smaller motherboard with an smaller case.
Are small factor motherboards more expensive than normal size motherboard, do they have the same price to performance ratio?
