Any tips on buying a workstation

Posted: February 19, 2011
Hi everyone, I'm a UK based architect who has a keen interest in animation (and has always had an interest in 3d animation). I'm currently into buying a new workstation to begin my journey on self teaching myself 3d animation using maya, zbrush and 3d max....

Has anyone got any suggestions on the type of workstation I should be looking at as a starter upper as it were but with enough technology to see me through for the next 3-4 years (as we all know software upgrades every 6/12 months).

Kind of old topic.But if you would do it today, you need an i7 cpu, 16+ Gb of ram, an 256+ GB SSD, and an R9 290X or Nvidia Titan.
