I am building a machine to run 3d renders / particle simulations with the ability to support lots of transparent materials, glass, water, plasma, etc. I also would like to support short animations (60 sec max). I need some help with what to buy.
I want to run: Cinema 4d Octane X-Particles
In the future, I will explore VR painting / modeling - if it breaks the bank, it's not critical for this build.
I can afford around $3k - $3.5k for the tower. I'm curious to see how much more computer I can get if I avoid BOXX and APPLE.
