I’m making a custom workstation build (thread here), and need to replace a placeholder GPU I’m using.
I’m gonna use the card for real-time previews only, and wanted to get a used NVidia. I still want to wait some time before I spend $1K on one of those top-shelf monsters. Current cards don’t quite make a dent yet, so I don’t care that much about gaining a little bit more performance for a whole load more of money.
Can you recommend anything?
I’m mainly looking for perceptual recommendations. So if you have a card you’re satisfied with, it performs well, and you’re not gonna swap anytime soon - please recommend!
The card will be ONLY for Cycles rendering preview in viewport, I don’t care about render times really (though these both are linked, I know :/)
I do need a full size card to plan out the elements I’ll be 3d printing for the chassis, and it’s probably gonna have a custom raiser - so I need to get a physical card to get its measurements to be able to finish the build
