Hi. I’ve been offered a used PC, but before I decide whether to take it or not, I thought I’d ask for your opinions re its suitability or otherwise for Blender use.
The details are below. Do I need 16 GB RAM, or would 8 GB be enough ? … Is the graphics card suitable ? Not sure I need a 250 GB hard-drive, really. Is the processor type suitable ? …Regarding the operating system : I’m considering the possibility of having a dual-boot system (Windows and Linux)…etc
I’d be very grateful for any guidance received. Thanks, in advance.
