Hi. I'm looking at a budget pc build for this specifically and motherboard, HD/SSd etc arn't as big a concern as cuda cores vs
FX 8350 (not OC) £130
16GB Ram £60
GTX 970 3.5gb (and .5gb slow ram) £220
i7 4790 £240
16gb Ram £60
r9 390 8GB £240
I can swap the r9 390 8gb for the GTX 970 but with DX12 coming out..im not sure if the 8GB would serve me better on the AMD card but the £130 difference between cpu and gpu's is a lot but if it's much faster, it will be worth it. I'd rather not have to deal with slow processing of live capture for facial animations if I can avoid it.
Anyone with "hands on" advice?
Forget anything AMD. No AMD CPU and no AMD video card. See Tweakers Page for reasons why.
The 4790 is old and a past generation. Better look at the 6700 or 5930.
Do you know that AMD does not support DirectX 12 Extension 12.1? Do you realize that the GPU is not used for live capture? Do you realize that even the 970 is overkill on such an entry level system?
