Hi people I am looking for some advice on building a new windows based PC as my old Dell XPS400 has just about had it.
I already have a 2 year old AMD built system but I use this purely for design work(Adobe AE, C4D, Autodesk etc) and don't have it connected to the net.
So what I wanted to do was build another PC that can do general surfing of net and design work etc but also help a lot with net rendering along side my existing AMD PC when needed.
I will not be using the new build for gaming just design and surfing net.
I am planning in the future to use the Octane render so GPU is also important factor on this build.
So before I get to far into this and I know people will cringe a little but I think I want to stick with an AMD build as the processor is way cheaper and is more in line with my budget of between £500 - £650.
I have also read that mixing AMD and Intel for net rendering can cause problems.
I'm going to re-use some of the parts from the old Dell such as SSD's, DVD drive, keyboard etc.
As my budget is tight I will be adding just enough RAM, maybe 8GB then add to this later down the line when I have a bit more cash so this way I can put more money into the main parts of the build.
Any help on a system build would be much appreciated,
