I’m in the process of buying a new PC to use it for Blender plus a bit of video editing duties. I’m not really a computer geek, this is my first computer I build for specifically for graphics and video and I’m coming from Mac OS world so I hope you can help me with the configuration.
Graphics first: I have the new RTX 3090 on my wishlist. Do you think there are a lot of difference between that and 3080 for Cycles? (The price difference is quite big).
Also, should I add a second graphic card to run certain things separately? Like monitor or Blender app or it doesn’t make any difference and it’s ok to use just a powerful one?
What are the other components choices to avoid bottlenecks? I see that AMD cpu performs better than Intel ones, but I guess I don’t necessarily need a Threadripper 24 cores, right? A lot of choices there and I’m not sure which one would be the best match with GPU.
Motherboard: is there a particular one I would need?
Power: A 1200 PSU should be big enough I think, what do you think?
Ok, thanks for now he he
