Hi there! I’m a sculptor, and I’d like to start 3D sculpting. The issue is: it looks like my computer needs a new graphic card.
What I have:
Processor: i7-3770 CPU 3.4 GHz
Motherboard: Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3
16 GB RAM
I always used graphic card on my processor, did mostly photo retouching and such tasks, and it was enough.
I won’t be doing any massive rendering, no animation as well. I’ll be mostly modelling/sculpting using brushes, with aim of 3D printing my models. These will be a detailed models of people and animals, with lots of polygons.
Currently I’m able to run Blender 2.80, but after about 10 mins of sculpting the object becomes all dark, so I have to save my work, exit Blender and start all over again. Blender 2.81 issues a warning that my graphic card isn’t supported, it allows me to sculpt something but crashes on save.
The budget is tight, maybe about $200-250, but all suggestions are welcome.
Thanks a lot in advance!
