I’m going to be building a Windows based computer, for running Blender, as well as Houdini, and Adobe CS6 software.
Im looking into Nvidia video cards and I’m trying to figure which one will be good for me. What are the specs to look at? I’ve been looking at a gtx 580, says it has 512 cuda cores. Also looking at a gtx 680, with 1536 cuda cores. Is this the spec to look at, besides the memory? I’ve heard the 509 series is faster the 600. Is more cuda cores better? I’m looking to run dual card (in SLI), but found a single card with dual gpu processors, for a total of 4 gig memory and 3072 cuda cores.
Am I looking at this right, with regards to gpu rendering within Blender or any other 3D application? Thanks for the help,
