I’m building a new PC mainly for Blender. I want to do animation and rendering, probably with cycles.
I wanted to get as much VRAM and as many CUDA cores as I could in a ~£1000 machine. No OS because I’ll run Ubuntu. Also, I’ve already got monitor, keyboard & mouse. I also want to have enough power and a large enough case in case in future I want to get another graphics card to run in SLI.
So, does this system look like good value for my aim? Have I forgotten anything or does anything sound like it won’t work well?
