System for 3d design and game design Tags: New Build Games 3D Systems Last response: August 7, 2010 8:47 PM in Systems Share aldrinstorm August 7, 2010 1:14:39 AM I'm starting up a small game design studio for the purpose of creating 3d games for both the computer and smartphones. I'm needing to buy a couple computers for the engineers and I don't want to go with dell because they never seem to show the performance that I need. I'm a home builder, but have been out of the loop (not built a machine in 2 years) on what parts work well together. Could some of you help me out to create a couple machines that could handle 3d rendering and game programming well. Right now im running an outdated system: Geforce 8800 GTS 512 2gb ram intel core 2 4300 1.80ghz (i know its old) Software that will be ran is: Unity3d 2 (upgrading to Unity3) Blender 2.53 And must be good at running dual monitors Price limit on tower alone is $1000 (less expensive would be preferable) Please let me know of some good builds or if there are some prebuilt systems that are equally good More about : system design game design Proximon August 7, 2010 8:47:47 PM I think you need to establish the GPU first and then the rest will follow. Can you get by with a 5770 or are you going to need a V5800? A GTS 250 or a Quadro FX 1800? I'm no graphics person and my programming days were long ago, but I believe it all comes down to poly count. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
