My girlfriend is in architecture school at RPI and is finding that her school provided XPX laptop (i7 - 1050) isn’t really as efficient as she would like for rendering. I am also in need of a new workstation. We are thinking we could build a new one with the power shes going to need and we can split the cost. I’ve put together a hardware list that I think will be adequate for what she needs.
Software she is running is VRay, Rhino, Auto-CAD, Adobe CC products and Photoshop.
The GTX 980ti I have selected is in my current PC and we would just swap it over to the new system. Will the 980ti be good enough for now or should we not even consider it?
What monitor setup should we go with? Dual 4K 27"s or a 4K ultra-wide?
Other thoughts about this build?
