I am a hobby 3d model artist and video editor from Serbia and I wish to do that as a career once I become good enough, but to do that, I need a somewhat decent gpu and unfortunately I have a too weak Radeon 7730 2gb ddr3 gpu which is not only incapable of content creation and even gaming on lowest settings (25-30 fps at most in most games on lowest resolution), but it is also not even recognized by programs I use (Blender 3d and Sony Vegas, it can run them, but it can't help with rendering like most other cards could, which speeds rendering up to several times and saves a lot of time), the Blender program even crashes as soon as I start to create more complex models, particles like grass,etc.
Here's some of my models.
I don't really have a need for a high or even mid range gpu, I'd be more than satisfied with a cheaper current gen low end gpu like gtx 1050 Ti or RX 570, but both of them cost more than double of what I can afford. Alternatively I could buy older used gpu's, but they require a lot of power which my psu can't handle and they are not that well supported in software I use, so there's no point in buying a old gpu if programs I use won't support it and if it will just waste electricity, so it's better to buy a newer 1050 Ti/RX 570.
If I do manage to reach the funds necessary and maybe even make something additional, that will be spent on a new hard drive, since my current one is a 10 year old 320 gb hdd which I'm surprised still runs.
Feel free to contact me if you have any additional questions and such.
