Hello everyone!

I'm new here, so I hope this is the right thread.

I'm building my very first PC mainly for 3D sculpture, animation and rendering. Here's the specs and tell me if I'm on the right path, my budget is tight so I can't afford more than this for now. (I will in the future after I start freelancing)

  • MBD: amd gigabyte x470 auros gaming 5 wifi
  • CPU: amd ryzen 3800x (Option 2: 3700x and add CPU cooling)
  • GPU: nvidia msi gtx 1660 gaming x 6gb
  • RAM: 32 (2x16)
  • HD: ssd adata su630 480gb
  • sata III 3.5 seagate barracuda 1tb 7200/min 64mb cache
  • Power: coolermaster mwe gold 650w
1/ Is this good for 3D?
2/ Will I face any bottleneck while working ?
3/ Can I play games like MGSV TPP and GTAV without harming it (I'm not a hardcore gamer, so nothing fancy/ ultra settings).

Thank you in advance. :)

There are a couple mail in rebates that will make it a little less expensive as well.

1. GTX 1660 is built for gaming. If you intend to use 3D packages like Maya/3DS/Blender/Solidworks, and Sculpt, you'll need the NVIDIA Quadro OR Radeon Pro WX. These contain special drivers for CAD and 3D work that are designed to be super stable and with special acceleration features. As these tend to be professional 3D software packages, of course you'll have to pay a professional price for your system.

Real ray tracing can extremely computationally and data intensive as rays bounce around. It can be assisted by video cards, but the more threads you have the better. Thread ripper might be the better choice (depending on your rendering software) The additional memory channels will also help. Also have at least 64 GB if you are doing serious production work.

I would also recommend a portable backup add on at the very least. If you are producing movies, you'll eat through that 1 TB quick.

You really need to look at which software package you wish to learn then visit the associated forums and ask them about the best setups. But serious 3D work that involves ray tracing isn't a light weight computer task. It can be slow and painful, so every bit of HP helps.

If you just want to get your feet wet for developing games and gaming assets, then unreal engine might be the way to go. It's requirements are much lower. But as always with computationally expensive task, more HP = better performance and user experience.

If you want to start really basic, then Roblox Studio with Lua programming language would be a good place to learn about primitives construction and scripting.

Thank you so much ! And for the software I already studied 3ds max and now I'm working on my final project.

I already worked on it using the school machine (it has Nvidia quadro k2200 and CPU : intel e5 1620 v3) which gave me some satisfying results

Hello there, thanks for your time.

As for someone living in a third world country (let's not start with shipping). this can't work for me.
