I am looking into getting a new pc and the thought crossed my mind as I noticed a 10 core cpu as an option - what is the max number of cores that modern software utilizes?
I'm looking into either building or purchasing a new PC with the following uses in mind:
Game Dev in 3D and 2D
Working with Unreal Engine and/or Unity 3D
Possibly working with modeling tools like Blender, etc
I'd like to also setup multiple VMs to code/test with in other environments besides my base environment (Win 10 or Win 7) so, probably a Mac and Linux VM.
In addition to this I'll probably be playing some more modern games like Star Wars Battlefront as well.
My thoughts were
Intel i7 - 7700k
16-32 GB Ram
1 TB SSD (may consider a combo solution with an SSD for boot and regular HDD for storage)
NVIDIA video card mid with at least 4-8 GB of Video Ram
