I'm about to buy a new pc build and just wanted to check what you guys are running and how it manages the pre-render.
I'm thinking I would go for:
i7 6700k - overclocked to 4.5GHz or close
Asus z170 MOBO
16 gig RAM
Anyone got something similar? or any suggestions. Didn't want to go above a $2k AUD budget.
Get more RAM. In a day and age where this stuff is as cheap as chocolate bars, there's really no reason to not go with 32GB at least. Even if you don't benefit from it right away, there will come the day when someone is going to ask you to produce 4k content from heavy 8k RAW files or something like that. You'll be glad to have it then.
