I primarily use Corona renderer so i am looking for a powerful CPU. I am also looking to try out GPU renderers such as octane, so I also need a powerful GPU, but that isn't the priority. Please let me know if you have any recommendations. I usually create stills and sometimes quick animations, but nothing too intense.
Do i need a sound card and wireless network adaptor? Is there anything im missing? Anything i can improve upon? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advanced,
