I have my budget together, know what i’m grabbing, buying some parts now, waiting on the cpu until Skylake, but I need one last detail.
Cycles has recently started supporting OpenCL. I’m trying to decide if I want to go with Nvidia or AMD for the video card. While OpenCL support will probably improve, I’d rather go with the best option for now. Video card budget is $350. The EVGA GTX 970 SC is the obvious choice from the green team barring a used 780 TI. Should I pull the trigger on this, or go for something from AMD?
