How to Choose a Computer for 3D Modeling

Thanks to the Internet lots of hobbies appear. Today, people chat online, play at the PlayAmo online casino, or try creating 3D models during their leisure time. Yet, the last hobby is quite expensive. In this case, you should have the right computer. Follow these tips to find the right model. 

Video Card

A 3D modeling computer should have a powerful graphics card, so a MacBook is definitely not suitable for this task.

An excellent choice would be a video gas pedal from nVidia with CUDA technology. To render an image and for graphics programs to work correctly, you need a large amount of video memory. The higher its value, the better. The best choice would be graphics cards from the 10-th and 16-th and 20-th NVIDIA GeForce series.

For our PC to perform the tasks assigned to it, we will need a 64-bit operating system. It is needed to manage the entire personal machine. The most current is Windows 10 (64-bit).


For the fast operation of programs it must be at least 16 GB, more is possible, less is not. As a rule, it is made in the form of slats with green textolite, but there are more expensive variants of RAM, which have a brighter design.

When buying be sure to consider that you should buy at least 2 strips (2x8GB) to ensure dual channel operation.

If the indicated amount of memory is not enough, it can always be expanded (if there are free RAM slots on the motherboard).

You should also pay attention to the type of memory: at the moment the most current memory standard is DDR4. It is highly desirable to have a RAM frequency of 2666 MHz, it will also have a positive impact on the performance of your system.


This device is responsible for the speed of processing operations on the machine. The faster it is clocked, the less time it will take for it to handle the task set by the user. There are models with two, four, six or more cores. The minimum optimal solution would be to buy a device with four cores, it makes no sense to take less.

There are two companies that produce microchips – Intel and AMD. There is no clear recommendation to buy. The first solution usually costs more, but also often shows better performance. Definitely if you have the money, you should take a model with the Core i5, Core i7 designation. From AMD side I recommend to pay attention to Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 models.

Do not trust your choice to specialists from computer stores, because their task is to sell obsolete goods.


The motherboard is the basis for the assembly of the entire PC. It is where we will be installing all of our components.

The best choice will be a board with a current CPU socket. Today, Intel has a socket marked LGA 1200, LGA 1151 v2, LGA 2066, AMD sockets AM4, TR4, sTRX4.

It should be remembered that progress does not stand still and what was a powerful PC yesterday becomes obsolete with time. It is believed that two companies will update their socket lines in 2021. You can build your own simulation PC assembly at various sites dedicated to this subject.
