Hello!

Ok, my laptop is dead and I need to buy something new. Fast. I’m also totally lost here. I was always a Mac guy and the laptop was my first PC in years….

Since I’m not a tech-savvy guy regarding PCs, I’m looking at already configured machines.

I will need this computer to work on 3DSMax, Corona and the Adobe Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator and inDesign).

What do you think of these setups? Any will be good for efficient modelling and rendering? Any other options around this price point (2000 to 2800 euros for tower only).

Forget all of the prebuilt ones, and build yourself a Ryzen 7950x or Intel i9-13900 system, if working only with corona your primary investment should be CPU, and RAM.
Here's a 2k AM5 setup with 128gigs of RAM.

Hey man! Thank you very much for the help!

Since I'm configuring a PC from scratch isn't a Threadripper a better option comparing to the Ryzen 9?


Edit: I'm using this Spanish website to select the modules. Let me know what you think about this setup

The only threadrippers that outperform Ryzen 7950x are out of your 2k-2,8k budget.

OK! What about the configuration I did? Can you pleade check that website link I've sent in the previous message? I can't find some of the components you showed me in Europe. Do you think that setup - the one I did - is good enough to work flawlessly and fast in 3dSMax and Corona?

Thank you very much!

For the PSU aim for platinum, you can save a few bucks on ram speed as 7950x3d working notmaly at 5200 mhz max anyway, no need for 6000. Never heard about the case, but that's your choice. Why do you need a soundcard?
