  1. Hi, this is my first post to this forum, and if I am doing anything wrong, please let me know, and I will give my best to try to fix it. I would like to thank you guys firstly to be such a great community, although I didn't take part in your discussions, I've red many of your posts and they helped me a lot. Although I am still a 3d Coat newbie, I have some previous foundation in drawing and concept designing, so it didn't took me long to realize outstanding power of this software, and I've decided to incorporate, to be more precise to MIGRATE majority of my work to it. But unfortunately, my PC does'n handles 3D Coat the best, so I've decided to build a new one, since this one has more then 7 years. So, since I don't know anything (almost) about computer hardware I've started deep search on NET and among other forums on this one about my future build. But majority of reviews is for GAMERS, and I wont play games on this PC, it will be semi-professional work station for: 3d modeling (3d Coat, MAX, Skethup, zBrush), Unreal engine, Keyshot,... Photoshop. So, since I don't have enough money to buy best equipment, I would like to ask you for your advice: what is the best value for your money today for: CPU, GPU, motherboard, how much RAM? to be able to perform with ease concept designing and visualization. My choices were GTX- 970 - because I've read somewhere about cuda cores, but few days ago on this same forum I've read that they are not playing that important role at all, so I am totally confused now, and I don't know should I think about R9 390 also? For CPU I was thinking about I7 4790K, but then I've heard about RYZEN few months ago, and I am even more confused what to choose now for CPU then for GPU. So, please HELP ME, and give me some advice. Thank you in advace

    Upgrading Cross platform

    Hi, I'm owner of Mac version of 3D Coat 3.5. (really loving it!) I would like to upgrade. But since I bought 3D Coat 3.5, I have bought more faster PC. Would it be possible to upgrade into PC version?
  7. 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
  8. I have an old computer: Custom made Q9300, 8GB, 9800GTX on a decent Gigabyte's motherboard, 500W Antec EW PSU, all in a nice looking and functional Antec P182 case. I was wondering recently what to do with that old buddy of mine? I considered: - selling it (but I couldn't really estimate its current market price, not to mention the nasty thought that some crazy kid would buy it and destroy it by overclocking everything at once, just to play BF3 on full details), - converting it to home file server (Q9300 and 8GB would be a total overkill, so... bad idea) - converting it to home media+file server with XBMC. Meaning: HTPC+file server. Those last two options would require from me to buy an array of at least two or three hard disks to hold the data ripped from all of my AudioCDs, DVDs and BRDs (and I would need at least one or two yahrens to rip'em... >>Go Battlestar!>>). And the very last option means: "Oi AJ, ye gotta buy an IR panel to have some means to steer yer bloody HTPC with, eh(?)/". Luckily, that's just a minor inconvenience, because such panels cost relatively cheap. Rendering node is out of the question unfortunately. I can't afford additional licence for a mere home server. Not when everything in our industry costs hundreds to thousands of dollars (I think we're in the second most expensive job a man can afford when it comes to license price, preceded only by CAD/CAM software... Damn!). The Q9300 would be more than adequate in a media+file server role, but it's still... Q9300. It's pretty dated now (5-6 years?). I don't think it has THAT much power saving features like modern SB, SB-E or IB CPUs do have (I bet my 3930K uses much less power than my oldie). I would use it in this role, but I'm a bit worried about the power bill I might get after the server keeps on workin' 24/365. But do I have other options? What would you guys do with your old PCs?
