My new desktop needs a video card. I'm not gonna do much gaming, it's gonna spend most of it's time running Blender Cycles and encoding video.
@art are you team Red or Blue & Green?
@RyuKurisu Purple? I got an Intel 4770k donated from a friend. I'll be going AMD for video though.
@art If you're going for a budget Option, try to look for AMD. Blender supports OpenCL for Cycles (some AUR faffing about with arch involved) and what not, and the opensource drivers are pretty solid.
@CarbonCatalyst Yeah, there's almost no reason for me to go Nvidia. Last I looked the Nouveau driver still didn't support video encoding.
I've dealt with the proprietary drivers before. No thank you. 🤣
