For Zbrush & Mudbox, which is using more on GPU or CPU processor to run?? Want to build a PC to run either both application but don't know should I get a faster CPU or GPU??

Any advise??

For Mudbox you need a good GPU, for ZBrush you need a good processor and RAM as it runs the sculpting in software rather than using the GPU.

Mudbox needs an 8800 gtx or better. The GPU is needed only for the video memory for Texturing and the post FX.

CPU/RAM are just as important for Mudbox.

You should favour 64 bit and lots of Ram if you want to use Mudbox the way it is intended.
