I’m planning to build a new pc case specifically UE4 and Blender; my budget is 1k5. I do not know if I should go with AMD Ryzen 2700X or Intel i7 8700k (very similar in price). And I do not know which one of these 3 should I go with between Radeon VII, RTX 2080 and GTX 1080. The Radeon has the same price as the RTX but the GTX will save me about $170 which is good. Although I do not know either the Radeon or the RTX 2080 performances with UE4 will justify $170, if so I’m willing to go the extra miles.
Currently, this is what in my wishlist:
_EVGA RTX 2080 - $700
_Thermaltake 650W - $65
_Ryzen 2700X - $310
_Corsair 32GB RAM - $240
_ASRock motherboard -$90 (Or something similar in price if I go for Intel)
_Case - $40
_500GB SSD - $50
_ 3TB HDD - $60
I do not game a lot so I can see why I should not go with the RTX especially there is almost no game on the market right now that support Real-time ray tracing. I cannot speak for the future though. But what I really want is optimal build for Unreal Engine such as compiling, light building, rendering, etc.
