Building my computer for 3d rendering and modeling Tags: New Build Rendering Computer 3D Systems Last response: August 31, 2012 7:34 PM in Systems Share ariancola August 31, 2012 11:37:38 AM I'm ready to build my first computer. I will use the computer for 3d modeling, animation and rendering mostly. I've seen most of the builds here are for gamers and I want to note that I won't be playing any games on my PC. Softwares I will mostly use: Maya2012, 3ds Max 2012, Zbrush. These are my top 3 priorities and of course Photoshop, Illustrator. My second priority are After Effects (but not as much as the first 5) BUDGET: Arround 1500 - 2000. Not fixed. Thank you very much. pp.s From what I've read Maya is superior with AMD 100-505648 FirePro V5900 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Workstation Video Card Item #: N82E16814195106 And 3ds max and zbursh aren't bad with that VC either. But will AE work with it? Since it doesn't have CUDA support. Or I just won't be able to run it smooth and with a few features? sry for the long post.

If you want to earn money with it I would suggest a prebuild on like the Dell Precision T3500 Tower Workstation with ECC RAM, guarantied compatibility and warranty. ram1009 August 31, 2012 6:05:39 PM I suggest you go to the individual websites of the software you want to run and find the common denominator for the system requirements. Use that as a minimum configuration. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
