Rygaard posted a topic in 3DCoatHello!!!! I hope this post serves many others who would like to do the same thing. Please, for anyone who really knows about PC Build, I would very much appreciate your guidance. I am wanting to build a new pc after many years, but unfortunately I do not understand much. I would like to set up a machine for programs like mainly 3D-Coat (of course), ZBrush, Blender, Mari, Substance Designer, Marvelous Designer, Krita, Photoshop, Mari, Unreal Engine, Marmoset Toolbag and others applications, as well as I can play games. I've been following the forum for information but I coundn´t find exacly what I´m looking forward and I was worried about what Andrew Shpagin said that "3D-COAT is essentially multithreaded, so cores will speed up. Intel is better because Intel TBB library used for multithreading, so on Intel it works faster anyway." Maybe this would be the first problem, because the configuration I set up was according to AMD Threadripper... I've done a lot of research and most of the people are only commenting on positive things about AMD Threadripper is better than Intel. I always had Intel, but... I have a lot of doubts regarding processor, Memory and the video card: Please, you could analyze in detail each item and see if it would fit to my goal of working with the applications above, as well as games. Below is the configuration of the pc. ================================================ 1.Motherboard: ASRock X399 TAICHI sTR4 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1/3.0 ATX AMD ===================================================== 2.Processor: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X (16-core/32-thread) ===================================== 3.CPU Cooler: Ecomaster Technology Enermax ELC-LTTR360-TBP LIQTECH TR4 Threadripper 360MM AIO Liquid CPU Cooler ==================================== 4. I do not know which mhz is better 3000mhz, 3200mhz or above? And which quad channel should I choose? What do You Think??? Memory: G.SKILL 64GB (4 x 16GB) Ripjaws V Series DDR4 PC4-25600 3200MHz For ntel Z170 Platform Desktop Memory Model F4-3200C16Q-64GVK Or which one you indicate? ================================================ 5. Video Card: Radeon Pro Duo 32GB (amd 100-506048 - AMD RADEON PRO DUO 32GB GDDR5 POLARIS PCIE 3XDP 1XHDMI) One person talked about the following video cards: 2x (two) Gigabyte - GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Turbo OC... --- OR: 2x (two) Zotac ZT-P10800H-10P..., --- OR: 1x (one) PowerColor AMD Radeon RX VEGA 64 8GB HBM2 HDMI... --- OR: 1x (one) Radeon Pro Duo 32GB (amd 100-506048). It seems to me that the Radeon Pro Duo 32GB (amd 100-506048) would be the best video card. But I would very much appreciate your opinion, which video card would be the best for the applications above and games? Would it be possible to use the Radeon Pro Duo 32GB (amd 100-506048) in conjunction with geforce1080 or Zotac ZT-P10800H? How would it be possible to play a game with these cards at the same time? I would have the option to choose which card I want to use it in the game (I know the Radeon Pro Duo 32GB (amd 100-506048) is not a gaming board). What do you think? ===================================== 6.Storage: Samsung 960 EVO Series - 500GB NVMe - M.2 Internal SSD (MZ-V6E500BW) ================================= 7.Power Supply: What do you think? PC Power & Cooling FireStorm Gaming Series 1050 Watt (1050W) 80+ Gold Fully-Modular Active PFC Performance Grade ATX PC Power Supply 5 Year Warranty FPS1050-A4M00 ===================================== Thank you very much for your attention and I hope everyone benefits from all the opinions here.
Hello 3Dcoat Community, It's my 1st post here and sorry if this topic has already been discussed on the forum. Also sorry for any grammar mistake as English is not my native language. I'm going to assemble a PC to produce game assets in Maya, Mudbox and 3Dcoat and use it in Unreal Engine 4 and Unity 5, since my technical knowledge is limited and couldn't find precise answers to my questions on the internet I'd be very thankful if someone of you could help me shine a light on by doubts. The parts configuration I'm going for as of now would be: CPU: Intel i7 6700K 4.2GHz 8MB Cache MB: Asus H170 Pro Gaming RAM: Kingston Fury X 2133MHz 16GB GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 980ti 6GB 2816 Cuda Cores Storage: SSD San Disk Ultra II 480GB CPU FAN: Cooler Master Evo212 Windows 7 or 10 plus 2-3 more case fans, 650W psu and of course an adequate ATX case. My doubts are: 1- I read a lot about Quadros being the best of the best for 3D modeling, but also read a lot about NOT beig the right ones for the kind of modeling that goes into 3D game assets so is the Quadro a must or will the GTX 980ti do fine? I also read a lot about Quadros not going well with game engines that prefers gaming-oriented GPUs. Is the 980ti an overkill and a 980 (non ti) will be enough? 2- Is 2133 16GB RAM enough? Better go with 32GB? Better go with an higher clock RAM (3000-3600MHz)? 3- Is the i7 6700K enough to not experience slowdowns (specially in high division levels in Mudbox or when building very mesh-populated scenes in the editor or baking big maps in 3Dcoat) or should I look at 6 cores CPUs? 4- Any issues with Win10? What about Win7? Thanks again for your help, I'm just willing to make sure I'll be spending this (quite a lot of) money on the right equipment.
