  1. Hi HerbieHerb and Zoomer, Thanks for the great advice, I can see that you are both in agreement about the motherboard being over-specified. I think I'm gonna go for the 550 as you suggested Zoomer. But not the 570, HerbieHerb, good to be clear it provides PCIE 4.0 which I don't need..(or an extra fan) There is such a deep level of technical knowledge here....which you folk have... Threadripper would be good, I took a look, but at £1000 it doesn't really make sense, I only use Renderworks about 20% of the time. The rest of the time I use Vectorworks, (40%) Photoshop (20%) emailing the rest.... I am hoping this setup will be good for photoshop and Vectorworks too. The entire tower should be delivered for £1,250 so its really inexpensive compared to my current Dell Precision 3530 laptop, which was listed for more than this..with far less power... I've never ordered a custom PC before, so a bit concerned in case they go bust after I place the order or something else goes wrong... its not the same as having the Dell 3 year on site guarantee...I would buy it with a credit card, but only have a company debit card.. Do you have a view on the 32 GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4 2400MHZ RAM? Does this have to be matched to any of the other components..I read that I don't need to match this to the motherboard. (but would it improve performance?) Thanks again to both of you for your great advice. Its very much appreciated.
  2. Hi Everyone, I am specifying a custom build PC for Renderworks and never have done this before, not really my strong point.. Does anyone have any thoughts on the following tower system spec: AMD Ryzen 9 3900 12 core CPU 3.1-4.3 GHZ. Asus Rog Strix X570F Gaming motherboard 32 GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4 2400MHZ RAM 6GB NVIDIA GeFORCE GTX 1660Ti 250GB seagate SSD In particular if I understand correctly, the Geforce GTX is all that is needed for looking at the plan view, and the 12 core is the best way to get fast rendering, based on ; I am unsure about the motherboard in particular its recommended verbally by the sales guy, but £200 more expensive than many of the alternatives. Thanks Ivan
