Crash when targeting front pose - hardware is???

Hello all!

I’m planning a movie with metahumans etc, i just updated all to 5.2 and animator but i get crashes when i try to add markers to my face.

I’ve been eeking by on my Aurora r7 tower, gtx 1070 only 16 gigs for a while, but also my phone is the iPhone X, not supported by animator.

Can anyone say which is more likely the culprit?

Sorry to ask, but about the machine - could i get away with upgrading gpu and ram (to 64gigs my max) just to get the features in spite of the old cpu, or should that money go to saving for a machine? Money’s tight right now… lol.

I don’t game much on pc, just need to get the features for movie rendering.

Thx much!!!
