Best latest configuration for a networking computer?
« on: September 19, 2019, 05:16:58 pm »
Hi there!
My question is simple, I run Keyshot 8 on a laptop, it works great, but I would like to dedicate a tower pc for big renders (the laptop gets quite hot very quickly).
What would be the best option? Should I spend the most on the CPU and memory and save money with a bad GPU?
I guess all I need is lot of cores, a 1TB 7200 hard drive and lot of memory, am I right?

Thanks for your advice  ;)

Currently yes. GPU rendering is coming with KS9, but it is still in progress.

Right now the top end ryzen chips will give you the most bang for the buck, but I would suggest not skimping on the PSU or the Case so that you can add GPU's later if you decide to upgrade to KS9.
