PC upgrade advice. AE, C4D, Octane

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've been learning motion graphics in AE and C4D over the last year or so and feel it's time to consider upgrading my PC. Below is my current build:

- GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboard

- Intel Core i7-3770K

- Gigabyte GTX 770 2GB (OC Edition)

- 32GB Patriot Viper 3

- Sandisk Extreme 120GB SSD for OS

- Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD for AE disk cache

- 1TB Seagate HDD for project files

- 400GB Seagate HDD for renders

- Corsair Carbide 500R case

- Corsair HX750 PSU

I've also just bought:

- 2x Samsung 850 Pro 256GB

- Noctua NH-D15 cooler

I plan to use more of C4D as time goes on and have been advised to get into Octane rendering. With that in mind:

  • Can anyone recommend any worthwhile upgrades or replacements for this build?
  • Would adding a second GTX 770 be worthwhile or do I need to replace the GPU for something more powerful and with more memory, ideally?
  • I'm open to considering replacing the CPU and/or motherboard, if a new CPU would substantially benefit my work?
  • How is best to configure my drives?
  • Thanks for your help!
