Hey everyone, so my sister asked me to help choose parts for my brother in law for a new work computer. He is using Sketchup pro 2020 for landscaping designs, and I am not really sure what else. I looked at the system requirements, and searched the forum for the types of builds people have done. I have experience building gaming PCs, but not ones for actual work. He isn’t doing super crazy work and I don’t think he needs the best, but I want to make sure this computer will be good for a couple of years at least. Is the performance difference that much compared to Intel CPUs? Should I bump up the GPU to and RTX card as well? Not sure what their budget is, but I don’t want to go overboard with it unless I can explain to them the benefits of spending more. I apologize if this isn’t in the right place to ask, or I missed something while searching the forum.
Here are the specs that I have picked so far:
CPU: Ryzen 3600x
RAM: 32gb 3200mhz
GPU: GTX 1660.
