I want to build a rig that can handle any lumion scene easily. And everything works at the best quality and butter smooth, since I wont be upgrading anytime soon.
In that case you will need to upgrade your entire PC as your existing components will act as bottlenecks, even if you get a GTX 980. Make sure that you choose a motherboard that supports PCI Express 3.0, fast system RAM and a high-capacity power supply.
For very complex scenes, you want to aim for a minimum of 20000 points in the Lumion benchmark, and 4GB RAM at the very least. 6GB is of course even better.
Depending on your budget, you may find that you'll need to compromise, so I have pasted the specifications of a range of user-submitted scores. I would not go any lower than a GTX 760 if I were you.LUMION BENCHMARK SCORE: 23400 points.
