Blender 2.79 can run quite decently on a potato.
I did some models on a 4GB RAM i3 laptop with it and it was completely alright and you can find machines like that in the fucking trash or on the curb.

ZBrush runs quite okay on older machines too but for SP you want something decent.
If you're really on a tight budget and want the BEST you can get for your work you literally have no other choice than having someone who knows shit pick GOOD but cheap second hand parts and slap them together.
That's the beauty of a desktop PC over a laptop. You can just pick parts and build yourself a good one for a good price (I'd say around 300 bucks are realistic for something with 8GB or even 16GB RAM, if you get your HDD for 10 bucks used or even for free from relatives or buddies, a case from the scrapper, mouse and keyboard also for 15bucks each or just from some other pc you still had)

you could buy a < 450$ PC, all that should run fine if you are just learning, if i have to change my PC I would like to go at least with something like this >680$
>>
>>695946
Why would you pick an I5 over Amd when you're on a tighter budget?
>>
>>695947
AMD give lots of compatibility problems with the ram and I don't trust Ryzen anymore, but you could change that and maybe lower the budget 50$
>>
>>695949
Fair points

>>695946
into the trash it goes

Get a used Ryzen 5 and GTX 970. Shouldn't be too expensive.

Just lurk Ebay, there are often good deals. If you have some used marketplace locally, that's probably even cheaper. https://www.ebay.com/itm/AUFRUST-PC-AMD-Ryzen-3-2200G-GTX-1050-2GB-RAM-8GB-DDR-4-Computer-System/312068710742

You can find a used GTX 970 for a fifty. Slap that in into any used PC with enough memory, and you pretty much have a decent 3D rig.

In theory you could have a 3D rig for under a hundred if you can find someone dumping industrial or business PC before they hit Ebay and the likes.
>>
Imo you need at least a 1070 for substance painter. Less than that and you get vr ram messages. The 970 also had a thing where vr ram wouldn't behave like it should and only use 2 gigs a time or something.
>>
>>696022
i use a 970 with SP without issues

I guess ye enjoy the stuttery performance and tanking after so many layers.
>>
>>696059
i dont worry about nothing
>>
>>696059
Never had any problems.
>>
>>695924
running all of the software you asked for on a 2015 asus laptop with a GTX 860m current gen gaming laptops are a meme.
>>
>>696059
Everything works fine with my GTX 960.
>>
The 970 has, in practice, less than the advertised 4 GB of VRAM. Avoid it.
>>
you guys build your own?

how hard is it today?

I build one in 1999 and blacked out a whole block for an hour.

Yes, I do build my computers. It's easy nowadays, thanks to gamers and modders, I guess. Every connector is more "ergonomic" or easier to use than the equivalent was a decade ago.

970 is perfect m80

Not really.
>>
>>696885
PS. "Only 3.5GB of it was useable" is inaccurate. It's just that the last 0.5GB of VRAM were much slower than the rest, creating a hell of a bottleneck for RAM-intensive software (such as GPU renderers).
>>
>>696886
If the memory on your GPU is as fast as the system memory, it basically doesn't exist.
>>
>>696885
>>696886
its perfectly fast enough for me
