So recently I’ve been wanting to upgrade my GPU. I’ve never really used Blender with a dedicated GPU and I guess I’m missing out on a lot of speed for just using my CPU, which is listed below. I’m really wanting to get the best bang for my buck when it comes to a card and I would prefer not to upgrade my PSU which is just whatever default one is in there (prob 300 w). I’m considering the GTX 1050 TI or the GTX 1060. I know the 1060 would probably require a PSU upgrade too. I’m looking to stay under $300 total and get the best rendering GPU now available for this budget.
I don’t care about performance for games and I only use my computer for Blender for the most part. You can see the link in my sig that goes to my portfolio. Please let me know if you think I would benefit from this. Main specs are below. I would appreciate the community’s expertise in this. There might be a much better deal I don’t even know about, please let me know if I’m overlooking anything here.
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770 CPU @ 3.40GHz Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600 8.0 GB Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium
Thanks for your time!
