Building a PC for 3D animation Tags: New Build Systems Last response: August 16, 2012 6:15 PM in Systems Share lavinia94 August 16, 2012 2:13:16 PM Soon I'll be starting university and I need a new PC. I'll be using Photoshop, Illustrator, Maya ZBrush and other CG software. What components do you recommend me to buy? My budget limit is about 600, max 700 pounds. Which graphic cards are better, AMD or NVIDIA? As for CPU's, I've been advised to purchase either AMD FX-8150 or Intel Core i7-2600k. What's your opinion?
