I built this for 3D modeling, Rendering, and photo editing (though I plan to start Video Editing too) My first build overall I decided to go for Ryzen 7 1700 as a nice 8 core CPU to help with CPU Rendering (Arnold). I got Vega for overall performance in Maya, and I've decided to use Pro Render to complement my usage of Arnold. I had no use for CUDA cores and the 64 was cheaper than both my other options (WX 7100 and Vega FE. It's also the reason for my blue case as I bought the GPU last)
This being my first time I was nervous putting everything together. At the end my system wouldn't post due to the RAM sticks being in the wrong slot. I guess I had the motherboard upside down as the sticks were in A1 and B1, and they'd only work in A2 and B2 (or Vise versa) Other than that everything works just fine and I'm loving how smooth this build is.
I bought a used HDD (The Hitachi) for around 90$ for a back up drive. I plan to add more storage as I go along just because I want to fill up most slots, It seems empty and I really like opening up the case to tinker with stuff.
I plan to get a 4k monitor soon, speakers, and another desk so my PC can be off the ground but all in all I'm loving it
PS I really need to work on my photography skills
Blue ring is when I first got it up and running, Red ring is now
