Hi there, extremely new here(literally just joined).
Following on youtube for the past 2 years…
I’m not tech savvy and I don’t know anyone that could help me so I’m here.
I’m a freelancer working in several areas: film editing, vfx, archviz… And i’m using different software(Avid Media Composer, 3Ds Max+vray, DaVinci Resolve+Fusion Studio, Unreal Engine, After Effects).
Currently I still have my 2012 pc(i7 2nd gen, 48gb ram, gtx960, 500gb ssd + 2x4 tb storage), and it wasn’t a problem using it(lets say sometimes I’m going for lunch until a render finishes or similar), but this past year luckily work increased and I’m on the hunt for a workstation that will make me more productive and was hoping for a little help from someone regarding compatibility of parts and if they are applicable for my needs.
I looked through countless videos on youtube, read many threads, but found very few regarding workstation builds(I almost never play games, and if I do it’s sniper elite for 2 hours and that’s it).
So I put a list on partspicker as suggested here, it contains the parts I could get where I live and it’s close to my budget of around 3000 euros which you can see here - pcpartpicker. com /list/tPwH9G
The idea is that the workstation will hold me for 2+ years at least. Probably will upgrade to 128gb ram, 2tb nvme and add a second 2080 or 2x2080tis when possible(in a year or so).
I wont be doing overclocking since I have no idea how to do it, but maybe if I learn it and it could benefit my work why not.
Can you give an opinion for this? Any advice will be great since I don’t know much about these things.
Thank you All big time in advance!
