Please suggest PC parts for my Lighting and Rendering build

Hi all,

Hi, I'm going to built a PC from scratch for my work of Lighting & Rendering. Basically my budget is kind of tight. so can you please suggest me if there are any changes needed in the configuration i am planning to build . is there anything where i can reduce or change or save on.

Budget Range: Around/Below 100K to 130K Indian Rupees.

# System Usage from Most to Least Important: Animation(Lighting and Rendering), GPU rendering, Gaming, Browsing, Sometimes overnight rendering( yes only sometime).

# Software usage: I will be using Software like Maya (Most), Unreal engine, Substance Painter, Adobe Photoshop & Aftereffects, Foundry Nuke & Katana and Renderers like Arnold, Vray, Renderman, Redshift etc.

# Preferred Website(s) for Parts: I am buying from Local brick and mortar shops , but yes was checking the pricing and comparison on these sites. , , ,

# Location: Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

# Parts Preferences: Not really, but i am opting for Intel over AMD for long term goal.

# Overclocking: Maybe, But not for CPU

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080, atleast 100% sRGB,HDMI, DVI ports, 24inches.

If you are doing rendering work, why are you going Intel? Are you working or gaming?

No one is recommending or building Intel right now, for the same price as that 9700k you could get a Ryzen 3700X assuming there is stock in your country and the prices aren't inflated etc. This chip is 7nm, nearly as fast in gaming and single thread performance, and will smoke the i7 in Blender, Maya, and everything else you do for work due to it being 8 core/16 thread (that i7 is only 8 core/8 thread).

If you can live with a 2060 Super instead of 2070 Super, or possibly go for an AMD Radeon 5700, you could take the money saved on GPU and possibly afford a 3900x which is 12 core/24 thread and will destroy render workloads and seriously outperform anything Intel offers that is not HEDT.

Everything else looks great, you made some good choices. I'd suggest not getting the Intel 660 SSD simply because it's basically a terrible cacheless drive from everything I've seen- a better bet would be one of the new PCI-E 4.0 SSDs if you go AMD, or simply a cheap Samsung 970 Evo.

Out of all those 1080p monitors I'd pick the LG or the BenQ but the LG is better, response time is lower, and it's an IPS. It depends on what games you play. If online gaming/competitive definitely go for the LG, given that that 1ms response time (take this with a grain of salt- things like the scaler in it, USB polling rates, interrupt latency, DPC latency, ping time etc. pretty much guarantee some small amount (10ms or so) input delay no matter what but modern games compensate for this anyway- the only way to have literally no lag, at least in single player, is a CRT ) should be better for competitive FPS play, and so on.

You might consider going with a cheaper Ultrawide display, you can get non-curved ones at lower resolution here for sub $200 now (15k rupee or so) that are 2560x1080 and even have HDR. If you play lots of single player offline games, this would be great, but the reason I recommend it is it is MUCH MUCH better for video editing and should be better for rendering too. If video editing, you will see much more of your timeline.

Hope this helps. Regards from America.
