Hello I am thinking it’s time to upgrade my aging PC (Q6660 2.4ghz with 8Gig Ram) and I have been reading through the forum topics on this sort of thing. I have been seeing a lot of posts saying the 580 series of NVidia cards are still some of the best value and best performing cards there is for 3D coat. I currently have a 570gtx with 1.5Gb RAM on board. My question is this: Is my current card worth keeping if I am planning to build a new pc based around one of the Haswell 1150 socket PCs e.g. i7 4790K. The software I use is 3D Coat v3 (hopefully V4 soon) and Lightwave 11.6, I don’t have Octane or any of the GPU based render engines so I am wondering what benefits a newer card would give me (if any!) All opinions welcome as having to buy a new graphics card will have a huge impact on budget etc. and any help would be appreciated. Thanks
