Ryzen 5950x build

(1/5) > >>

Hi ! I'm thinking in improve my actual pc ( i7-4770k ) and i was reading a lot and finally this is my configuration, what do you think ? Do i need change something ?

CPU: Ryzen 5950x
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15
Motherboard: Asus Rog Strix x-570-E
Memory: Patriot Viper 4 3600 Mhz 128GB (4x32gb)
GPU: Gigabyte Geforce RTX 3080 Gaming OC
Case: Fractal Meshify S2
PSU: Seasonic Focus +1000 ( thinking in add another gpu in a future )

Go for RX6800XT instead of RTX3080 for smart access memory feature

But the AMDs won't support NVIDIA AI Denoising, and also limit you if you want to go for a GPU based renderer. Those may or may not be something the original poster is concerned about, but could certainly be a deciding factor in picking an NVIDIA card if so :)

I prefer NVIDIA gpu, but my worry is memory, i don't sure if it is good for this configuration.

Perfect choice in everything :- ) Looks like you have done your research well!

Optional notes:
- Tom is correct, for CGI artist, nVidia has us locked because of CUDA & Optix dependent software. The new AMD cards are fantastic value due to having 16GB of VRAM which is super useful for viewport management (highres texture visible, multiple 3dsMax instances open at same time,etc..) but real-time Optix Denoiser is far too valuable.

- Strix-E X570 is great board. I have one too ;- ). You could alternatively go for X550 if you don't want active chipset fan.
My is super silent.. but I use blower GPUs so this area is not hot. With AIB GPUs (Gigabyte, MSI, Asus,...) it will be different.

- If you are from US or somewhere where FE cards are available, I would go for FE version. It outputs 1/3 to 2/5 of heat directly out of case which is pretty useful for CPU-heavy workstation.
