Hi can anyone advise me on the spec below. Is this a good use of money for GPU rendering? 4x GPUS.
Can this be optimised for similar budget?
Thanks, Dan.

I genuinely don't know with any certainty as this is WAY above my pay grade unfortunately.

However, I can't help but wonder if an AMD build would be better. I'm not convinced a 6 core CPU is going to feed those GPUs at the rate they can handle with any sort of rendering instructions.

Just did a quick double check. The 7800X only has 24 PCIe lanes. I think you would want a system with 64..... which would be AMD.... but there doesn't seem to be an option for 4 2080Tis. It's a strange predicament to be honest.

There's no way that 4 2080Tis are going to be fed by 24 lanes while running a fast M2 drive and various other operations.

My only thought would be getting a better cooler maybe? While I'm sure the Frostflow is a good cooler and, under normal circumstances would be fine....but the heat coming off those 4 GPUs would send me straight to the best cooler possible to ensure the CPU doesn't get affected too much by that heat

Ok, thanks all.

seems this build isn’t quite right. I’ll try AMD. Seems to be a 2 card max there though.
