Solved what to upgrade from an nvidia 1060?

October 13, 2020 at 10:54:05
Specs: Windows 10
Not really tech savy when it comes to computer parts, so I am not sure what the best upgrade would be on a budget. Currently I'm in university studying Animation, and it seems that I'm reaching the limits of my system which is pre built. I was recommended to upgrade the video card and see if I can look into adding some more ram as well. Any help is appreciated, and thanks in advance!

Simulating your current build: (guessing your hardware)

With the NVidia GTX 1060-3GB your workstation performance looks weak
Upgrading to NVidia GTX 2060 shows a considerable improvement in workstation performance.

Just select the current hardware of your build first and change to improve.

Hi im not really sure how to answer that. From what I looked the area just says "system product name" for the system make in the device manager. It is running windows 10, 64 bit. This was a pre built pc by ibuypower

Specs:
Processor: i7-7700 CPU @ 3.60GHz, 3601 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
Nvidia GeForce gtx 1060 3gb

hopefully this helps out, if not let me know any other info needed.

The GTX 1060 is still a decent card. How much RAM do you currently have?

Curently got 16 ram, and the 1060 has gotten me pretty far, but now we're running simulations for vfx and it's slowing my workflow pretty hard right now. It seems vfx is where I want to go so if possible a card or recommended upgrade that could get me by for a year or 2, till I can make my own build.
