Poor artist on a toaster here. I've got tons of tutorials to help get me started with modeling and such, but my computer is so shit nothing will run. So I've finally decided to stop spending all of my free money on gaming consoles and save up for a PC. Here's what I'm looking at:https://pcpartpicker.com/list/psCdWX(I do have a spare HDD)Will this last me a while? Any suggestions (within $600 or so)? I'm told the Ryzen's threading works well with art programs.
All of that looks fine, but I would suggest going for the 6gb GTX 1060 instead of the 3gb. You will be thankful for the extra VRAM when using programs like Substance painter, 3gb is just too little these days.

>>563324I'm running in i7 6700 and gtx 1060. Pretty decent, but I built my pc with upgrades in mind. For the full setup it costed around 2000$.

>>563332OP here, thanks I guess I can squeeze a little more for it. I preferably want this PC to last me a good few years.I also need to replace a my broken drawing tablet sometime soon.

>>563393I used to plan on machines lasting 'a good few years' too. Ah... youth.Sorry kid but if you don't wanna be burning through big chunks of hardware every 18-24 months, high end CG is not for you.Just make sure you flip your old gear on eBay before it's too decrepit and burnt out to get rid of. Getting hardware and then driving it into the ground as opposed to regularly selling stuff on and updating it actually ends up working out way more expensive and then you just end up with a basement full of bullshit fucked up old computer parts that you can't bring yourself to throw in the trash because you remember how much you paid for it 8 years ago.Refresh cycles are not just for big companies.
an ancient i3 3450.I also have a gtx970 but I don't even really play games anymore

>>563608Oh you're still at the age where you get angered by the things other people chose to spend their money on. That's fun.
>>563519>tfw this was me but the graphics card got fucked after windows update and its past warranty so I'm stuck with an intel integrated that barely even supports blender's unshaded viewportI was enjoying UE4 so much then this happens. I wish to kill myself.
>>563744>Graphics card got fucked by Windows updateIt sounds like it just changed your default to the Intel one. I work in a computer shop and this sort of thing happens a lot, there are ways to fix it. Can you see the graphics card in device manager?
