What kind of specs am I looking at when it comes to 3D software.If you're feeling generous, could you also tell me what each spec contributes? For example, what does a more powerful GPU contribute to the 3D modelling process, etc.

>>512155>2016>2x 2tb hdd for raidkek
>>5122032tb is still a lot of storage man, i dont see the issue here, expecially when you are just starting
pretty much impossible to give any quality advice here without knowing more specifics... for instance for some CAD stuff, an expensive quadro/firepro GPU is almost a must, for some types of 3D modelling (e.g. if you want to render stuff in cycles et al) you will benefit the most from a powerful GPU with tons of RAM (esp. hair strand rendering tends to eat many gigabytes of VRAM), for other stuff yet again it doesn't really matter.

>>5122408 2gb sticks????4790k is ultimate?
>>5122512 X 8GB HyperX :^)I'm also very happy with the GTX970s
I7-4790k32gb RAM980TIC4D/Octane renderNukeXAdobe thingsOnly software that really need gpu for me is octane render. Perhaps Nuke but don't feel that much of improvement (had gtx 960 with 4gb of Vram before).
If you have infinite money you should get those motherboards that support 2 cpus and get yourself some of the latest intel xeons plus 4 gpu sli and some 192 gb of ram
>>512252You're a bit low on ram compared to the rest and a 970 is overkill unless you are a big fan of GPU rendering.Also, get at least two monitors. Two is the bare minimum.There's nothing ultimate in that build.
>>512277I use UE4 alot which relies heavily on GPU also for gaemz as well, I hardly do any offline rendering now. I'm using my old monitor but I'm thinking of getting a 3D one. Either with passive glasses or with active shutter, I'll trade that for dual monitors
mfw I had to get myself laptop because I have to take it with me daily and I travel a lot>kill me
