Hi people! I’m looking into a good pc for developing games, 3D modeling and art. So my pc gotta be able to run zbrush, ue4, photoshop ect. My current is getting too old n i have trouble running even my 2d painting programs sometimes so i think it’s time for a new one. And this time I’d like to invest in something good.My question is: what specs should my computer have? I have been looking around some threads but all i could find were some outdated ones.
But based on what i could find, here’s what I’ve been looking at:
CPU: Intel Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake
RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport 2x16GB 2400 Mhz
PSU: FSP Hydro Gold 650W
SSD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3,5" 7200 RPM
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3,5" 7200 RPM
Motherboard: ASUS Maximus IX Hero
Graphic card: MSI GTX 1080 AERO 8G OC
Most of this is the highest available stuff from the company building it for me, so is there anything i could go down on, is it fine or is there something i should upgrade? The current build is around 2.533 USD rn and im still a student so this is A LOT for me, so if there’s something i could go down on, i wouldn’t mind. rn i’m mostly wondering about the motherboard and psu since they’re both very expensive and probably the things i know the least about,
My current one got:
CPU: Intel Core i5-4460S
the rest idk
I guess i could upgrade some parts of it, but since my old pc is from 2014 and was not bought as a gaming pc, i thought it might be better to invest in a new abnd good one, instead of having to replace my pc in 2 years probably.
