    Posted: 18 Nov 2019 at 4:42am
Greetings All! I am primarily a gamer who wants to do 3D modeling every now and then. I am also looking to get into VR, but I don't really get motion sick, so refresh rates aren't a big issue for me. I can handle VR on a GTX 670 for example. Would anyone mind letting me know what they think of this build? I will likely dual boot with Manjaro Linux too, maybe Windows 7 as well depending on Windows 10 compatibility. Thank you!

Budget:
$2310

Expectations:
VR Capable

Usage:
VR, Gaming (NMS, Everspace, Cyberpunk, RE2 Remake, maybe Metro Exodus), lite to moderate 3D modeling (Mostly Blender), Art (Corel Painter, Inkscape), programming

Special Needs:
Futureproof for heavy user
I need lots of USB ports. My current PC has 10, but I could probably get by with 8. Will the motherboard I chose suffice?

Couple of things. For $218, you can help your performance and get a stronger, better warranted power supply. At the quite low prices for RAM at present, I recommend your opt for 32GB of the Vengeance. It will give you a worthwhile boost in your 3D modeling and artwork for only $129.

The other "must have" IMO is the Corsair 850W power supply with the 10 year warranty they come with for an extra $86. Remember, you will get a $200 discount when you order the rig, and free shipping.

IF your budget is so tight those two make you hesitate, you COULD pay for most of it with a step back to a 512GB Samsung 970 PRO, and simply add more SSD storage at lower pricing later when needed. That would save $139.

As for the rest of your build, I think it is pretty well designed to do what you want it to.

Thank you so much! I will follow your suggestion. I'm also getting slightly smaller HDDs. Eventually I plan to upgrade the RX 5700, but I want to wait and see what happens with the ray-tracing situation.

At most tasks, the 5700 compares very well with the 2060 SUPER, but you should keep in mind that the RTX line outperforms significantly in multi-rendering. That's a feature you may be very interested in for your 3D modeling going forward. At this stage in the video card cycle, you may be employing a reasonable strategy to see what the next gen can do for you. Welcome to our forum, FlareStar. Happy trails!
