So, I’m finally ready to purchase a new motherboard and processor, but I’m not sure what to look for, so I’d thought I’d ask you lovely people for advice now that I’m ready to buy.
I am looking for something that I can hopefully port my RAM over to. I currently have 16GB of DDR3 RAM and would like to use that on the new motherboard if possible, with possible room for expansion later. The main goal of this new motherboard and processor is to help render 3D animations.
I would also like to port over my current video card (NVidia GeForce GT 640) with possible upgrade later.
My budget is US$700 and I want to get the best bang for my buck.
What do y’all recommend? i7? Something else? Brand? Processor? Whatever you guys have to say, I’d love to hear it! And if you have any questions, I’ll be happy to answer them!
