Mega Beast VFX PC GFX Upgrade Needed
Was hoping to get some help upgrading my current VFX workhorse PC. Interested in adding the NVidia Quadro RTX8000 or a GFX card equally as powerful. I'm venturing into virtual production with motion capture using UNREAL ENGINE and need to max out my render power.
Would I need to swap out my motherboard, processor, cooling system?
Would it be easier or more affordable to add another GTX1080TI or some other GFXcard to the pc to work in tandem with the current one?
My budget for this would ideally be around $5000.00 (considering the cost of gfx cards), but if we can make this happen for less and get just as much bang for the buck by adding another powerful gfx card to our system w/ the 1080TI I'm definitely open to it!
