  • PC for CPU rendering 3ds max Vray

    Hi Everyone.

    Need a bit of advice putting together a system on gladitorpc. I'm after a second 3d rendering PC for work - After browsing the custom build rendering section of the site i realised that a lot of the rendering pcs might be a little overkill for what im after, whilst i want a heavy duty processor (lots of cores/threads) i dont really need a 2000 pound graphics card as i wont be using this for gpu rendering - only for cpu rendering and gaming (doesn't need to be cutting edge just ability to play latest games on mid/high).

    So i headed over to the gaming builds and added my own processor + ram. what do you think?

    Motherboard 1 ASUS A320M-K Prime - DDR4 Micro ATX Motherboard
    PSU 1 550W - Corsair VS550 550 80+ White Cert PSU
    Case 1 GameMax Knight Black Midi-Tower Gaming Case
    Hard Drive 1 256GB Adata XPG SX8200 Pro M.2 PCI-E NVMe SSD/ Solid State Drive
    Graphics Card 1 ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti DUAL OC 6GB Graphics Card
    Service 1 4 Year Standard Warranty (2 Month Collect/Returns, 1 Year Parts, 4 Year Labour)
    Extras 1 Standard Sufficient Thermal Paste for Cooling
    Service 1 Standard Build Service (Average 5-7 Working Days)
    RAM 1 32GB (2x16GB) Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000MHz - Black
    Software 1 Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit
    CPU 1 AMD Ryzen 9 3900X Gen3 12 Core AM4 CPU/Processor with Wraith Prism RGB Cooler
    Case Mod 2 30cm Magnetic LED Strip - White
    Hard Drive 1 2TB Seagate Barracuda Hard Drive

    possibility to save money by changing anything else?

    Things i definitely need.
    Ryzen 9 CPU as i need a fast cpu for rendering.
    32gb ram
    decent graphics card but not overkill.

    Well... I was going to put a reply saying don't match an A320 board with a 3900X... Then I found this video:

    So I guess I'll just forget what I was gonna put...

      However, I really would avoid a corsair VS series PSU.
      The BsQuiet Pure Power 11 is a MUUUUUCH better unit.

      also a GTX 1660 super is a better choice. Almost as good as a Ti, but quite a bit cheaper. Even a 1650 super is a good 1080p gaming choice right now but in reality any 16xx series would count as "decent but not overkill"
