Choosing the Best Computer for 3D Rendering in 2015: What You Should Know

In case you have newly entered the 3D creation field, you may be wondering which computer will give you the most power to create amazing 3D visuals. Honestly, there is no right or wrong answer. But still, there are some things you need to keep in mind. Let us go ahead and find out what those things are.

Should you really bother?

The first question you need to ask yourself is, ‘Do I really need to trouble myself with all these?’ The truth is, yes, you need to bother yourself about getting the best computer you can get for making 3D stuff. Obviously, a great computer will give you super fast processing speed, which is undoubtedly the most important benefit a 3D developer wants his or her computer to deliver. However, there is no reason to go crazy or spend sleepless nights thinking about the right answer.

Assemble or not

In case you love to do everything your way, and want a computer assembled solely by yourself, go ahead and purchase different parts differently. But quite frankly, these days, there are many desktops available that come pre-assembled which can outperform even the best of customized computers. Ten years ago, it was a different story; there is no doubt about that. But now, things have changed a lot. The market is full of computers that perform amazingly fast. You just have to be willing to pay for one.

What to really look for?

Generally, purchasing a computer that has enviable gaming capability is enough to take care of even the most rigorous 3D projects without breaking a sweat. On the technical side, it is best to go for a dual or quad graphics card. Also, single channel RAMs perform pretty badly in most cases when dealing with 3D development. So, be sure to choose a computer that gives you a dual channel 32GB RAM, or at least 16GB. In addition, it goes without saying that SSD is your best friend, and SATA is your biggest enemy.

Some recommendations

You will be the happiest when you search the market on your own and buy the computer that appeals to you the most. But if you still want some recommendations, take a look at the Acer Predator and Dell Alienware models. If you love ASUS and are not ready to ditch your favorite computer brand yet, then you can strongly consider buying a ROG. The MSI Nightblade Series is quite good, too.

    Firstly, I am absolutely and completely a novice at technical jargon. Without me overstaying my welcome with you great computer minds,(not meant sarcastically) please enlighten me. I have recently discovered my interest in 3D art and animation and really just want to tell the guy at the pc shop what I want, (specs and all) without making a complete idiot out of myself. I am a sketch artist and now I want those to come alive. For starters “blender” is the first option; what is needed to run this program and all other programes used in the process without glitches?
