I’m going to start 2019 off with a bang and get myself a new computer.
This is for business, so I’ve got a bit of money I can throw at this, but I wanted to get your feedback before actually putting down the cash.
I primarily use this computer for Blender artwork, as well as a little gaming on the side.
I’m also planning on putting most of my rendering up in the cloud this year, so although I’ll still do testing locally, the final animations won’t be rendered from this new computer.
I’ve put together a build list. I was hoping people could advise me on which parts they’d recommend. In most cases I have 2-3 pieces I could use, but I’ve got no idea how to pick between them.
I’d be particlulary interested in peoples opinions on Motherboards. These are the bits I know the least about.
Here’s what I’m looking at getting at the moment:

$600 - Intel Core X i7-7820X 3.6GHx Skylake X 8 Core s2066
