PC build spec advice needed.


Hi everyone,

I am in the process of compiling a list of parts for building myself a PC that I can use for Archicad among other things like gaming and photo editing.

My question is would I better off getting an i7-9700k or a Ryzen 3700x?

I’ve seen reviews explaining the difference but don’t know how that really effects Archicad or programs like Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator and Twinmotion (my preffered rendering software).

The build wil also have 32gb of 3600MHz RAM and an RTX 2080 Super GPU.

Thank you for reading and any suggestions


If I were building an new PC for all the software you have listed I’d be looking at an i7 12700k or Ryzen 7 5800X3d with 64 Gb ram and a Nvidia 3080 super plus 2Tb of nVME storage. Most of the hardware in your list is well out of date (both processor and graphics card more that 3 years old) if you build with modern hardware the PC should last you several years and pay for itself many times over




HPZ1 G8 i7-11700 32BG RAM, Nvidia RTX 3070 8GB
