I’m starting my journey in Blender. Taking a udemy course on it. Its cool. So I came across a couple of things. I’ve seen…
Ryzen 5 3600X
32GB RAM (DDR4)
500 SSD m.2.
GTX 760 (2GB) <<<<<< (ack).
OS: Fedora 31 | Kernel 5.7.11-100.fc31.x86_64
DE: Xfce | Version 4.14 (i think have to double check).
GPU Driver: 440.XX
“Blender is unable to find a compatible GPU”…
Did some research: GPU is no longer supported by Blender (well it is 7 years old).
Now here’s the thing: I’m running Linux, so do I want cuda cores or openCL? GPU’s are very expensive.
The other question is -> Best Bang for Buck. My intention is to create short 2D animation with sound. So there will be video editing of some nature in there. There maybe also be some 3D images. I doubt I’ll get to 3D animations - for a while yet, but ya never know. So the question becomes - how much power do I really need.
GTX 1660 ti ($350 - $470)
Price Jump >>>>
Radeon RX 5700 XT -> $520 - $605
GTX 2060 SUPER -> $565 - $650
GTX 2070 -> $590 - $620
GTX 2070 SUPER -> $620 - $1100
(Prices in CAD you can see the list here > https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/products/video-card/#c=438,446,425,447,444&sort=price&page=1 )
So without wasting money on bells and whistles and super super high end cards, how do I choose the best card for my system?
Ideas ? Advice ? Thoughts?
Thanks a bunch
