  1. Hi, I'm looking to build a PC at home and I don't know a huge amount these things so I'm looking for some advice. My budget is around £3k. The main uses will be Houdini, Maya and Nuke. I do a fair amount of heavy fx work and I'm planning to do gpu rendering with redshift. My main questions are to do with which cpu and gpu to go for: CPU - the AMD threadripper looks very interesting, is it worth waiting to see how much that costs and how it compares to intel i7/i9? - are the i9 chips worth it? - or is it better to go for a dual cpu (e.g. dual xeons)? Would that fit in my budget? is it possible to use just one cpu on a dual socket (with the option to add another at a later date)? GPU - I would ultimately like to have 2 or 3 gpus for rendering but, so I guess this influences which motherboard I can get (with enough pci-e lanes) - I think the 1070 seems like a really good option to start with for price/performance
  2. Hi all, Completely new to Houdini and this forum! I am Cinema4D-er learning Houdini on a brand spanking new PC. It's also my first build so not-so-bright choices may have been made... It seems my viewport/perspective view is taking up so much time (Red-zone on the Performance Monitor). Figured I'd start by checking my hardware, so please judge my build for anything that is off... (Don't judge me ) Thanks for your help i7-7700K Asus Prime Z270-A Corsaie LPX DDR4-2133 MSI GeForce GTX 1060
