Just signed up to hopefully get some help. I am looking to upgrade to get a little more power for 3D rendering (Cinema 4D). Below are some of the current specs of my computer. I am currently just looking to upgrade the CPU, motherboard and of course the RAM. I want to stay under or around $280 (I know not much to work with but I am about to graduate college and need to update my computer as much as I can) I assume I will have to stick with a AMD CPU or a i5 Intel which is fine, I just want to make sure the upgrade will last me a few years if possible. Also Overclocking isn't a big deal for me.
Current Setup Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) X4 750K Quad Core Processor (3.4GHz) Motherboard: MSI A55M-E33 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) HDMI Micro ATX AMD Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 610 (Not Important - Include just incase) Memory : 16GB (Not Important on brand)
I have been reading a lot on PC Part Picker along with cpuboss and a few other places and from what I gathered: Here is a AMD build I found but am not sure about it because the CPU is from 2012 and a few have spoken on how FX series is dead.
Possible AMD Setup ($269.96) Processor: AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5 GHz (4.0 GHz Turbo) Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 (rev. 6.0) AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Memory : 2x G.SKILL Value 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Over Budget Intel Setup ($335) Processor: Intel Core i5-6500 6M Skylake Quad-Core 3.2 GHz LGA 1151 65W BX80662I56500 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 530 Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-H110M-A (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel H110 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Memory : 2x CORSAIR ValueSelect 8GB 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2133 (PC4 17000)
So I need a CPU, Motherboard and the ram. Thank you all for the help in advance!
