I’m currently planning to upgrade my years-old PC to a budget friendly build.
What I will be working in mostly:
- Cycles still renders (GPU)
- Video editing in Blender/other software.
- Moderate to Hi-res Modelling/Sculpting in Blender.
- Simple physics simulations in Blender(occasionally).
- 2D Graphics- Krita & GIMP.
- 3D scanning.
I am not planning to use it for any gaming purposes. And I do not care about how the PC Case looks (neither the trending LED lights).
My budget ~1000 USD
Here is a custom build recommended by CGDirector
CPU: AMD Ryzen R7 2700 ($224.99)
CPU Cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 AM4 ($88.09)
GPU: NVIDIA GTX1060 - Asus Turbo ($299.60)
Memory: 8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX Kit DDR4-2666, CL16-18-18-35 ($57.99)
Storage SSD: ADATA 120GB SATA ($19.99)
Motherboard: MSI X470 Gaming Plus ATX AM4 ($134.99)
Power Supply: Corsair CX Series CX550 550W ATX 2.4 ($54.99)
Case: Corsair Carbide Series 200R ($59.98)
I’m in India so the prices differ here and there, but I still feel this is a pretty decent build for the price. I’m not sure whether all the parts are compatible. It’s my first time trying to build a PC rig. I have done a bit of research but I am really a novice in this context.
Is this a reliable build with respect to the list of things I will be doing on it?
Any specific advice on building a PC for Blender?
And my biggest concern, are these parts compatible?
Thanks a lot for reading the whole thing. Any advice/suggestion will really help me out.
