Old timer here, learning new tricks. About to invest in a new GPU, the gtx1080 fits the bill but there are so many to pick from. I’ve had pure hell lately with other cards, motherboards, Win10 updates the whole bit. Here’s what I have:
i7 4790 3.6g ASUS desktop
Current GPU: 2gb r7 240
I’m going thru the Udemy training courses — totally new to B. The 240 card crashes constantly, no matter if I’m modeling or CPU rendering. Tried it with the onboard HD4000 and it does work, but the UI drags like a sack of wet rags.
Everybody asks which one they should get. I want to know which ones are best to avoid. Who’s drivers wont behave, etc. Last time I upgraded a video card was a late 90s Diamond FireGL…so yeah.
