For the programs I use (AutoCAD, SketchUp, Revit, 3DMax and Blender) a GTX does just as good if not better than a Quadro for WAY less money. Very similar with a consumer i5-i7 as compared to a Xeon based system. Sure this one is still on DDR3 but that's fine for me. If I was on it 8 hours a day then I could justify a newer DDR4 based system. Just for side work, take home work and light gaming this will be just fine.

Anyway speaking of Blender They just released a new version with a completely revamped UI that finally makes this a real player compared to 3D Max and Maya. Their new EVEE real-time rendering engine is a game changer. Here is a test of some planks and wall textures from a SketchUp model. Real time not rendered. WOW, well wow to me

I have the best job in the world. As I told my daughter a few years ago. I get to "draw and color" and I get paid for it!
