Hey everyone, first post here after the forum was recommended by a friend.
I'm currently working at a design agency specialising in 3D work. I spend most of my time working on arch-vis projects which often contain large poly counts that are very memory intensive in both the view port and at final render time.
I'm also heading off to university this year so I really want to get my rig sorted before I start my course, due to some generous scholarships I have a nice 1200 that I can spend on my new rig. I've looked at a few parts so far but but its been a while since I upgraded my computer fully so I'm a little rusty on what's good so if my heading down the wrong path tell me!
I'm guessing most parts will be coming off e-buyer and Amazon but if you know of any other great places that ship to the UK that would be awesome.
Ability to calculate and render images fast.
Ability to handle a large amount of view port polygons (fields of grass in maya or a high resolution zbrush sculpt)
Fast load times for OS and programs.
Computer keeps reasonably cool.
Potential for future upgrades.
