Archicad Render / Bimcloud PC Parts Suggestions
We have a small architecture company looking to spend $1500 on a PC server to run Graphisoft Archicad Bimcloud. Not much $ but we're trying to stretch the $. We'll put it together ourselves.
Graphisoft post a recommendation page here, though it doesn't detail the whole suggested build.
Looking for anyone who's put one together or can make suggestions, specifically about best bang for buck motherboard and CPU combo at the moment. Graphisoft recommend Quadro cards, which seem overpriced. Other cards will work though they don't seem to test many of them and post the results.
CPU: ryzen 7 8 core? From forums it seems buy the most cores you can afford.
MB: I have nfi, just needs 4 ram slots and be M-ATX size
Graphics: Keen to hear best alternative to Quadro.
Ram: just buy the fastest least flashy Crucial?
Power: EVGA Gold
Machine will be headless and run 24/7, rendering complex models and serving the 3d info via bimcloud to 4 or more client computers.
If you've got time to drop any suggestions would be appreciated.
