You might want to look into a cloud-based deployment using AWS. You can get a spot instance of a 4-gpu machine for <$4/hr. There is conveniently a free NAMD AMI (big thank you to TCBG) with everything pre-compiled so there’s no hassle.

Have a look at these benchmark results : https://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/hpc/RTX3080-TensorFlow-and-NAMD-Performance-on-Linux-Preliminary-1885/
I personally prefer AMD Ryzen processors with RTX 3080

I am planning to set up a home PC to run NAMD simulations of bilyaer, bilayer-protein and ionic liquid systems. I have decided to go with the AMD Ryzen processor (for budget reasons, although I know intel would be better suited). I would like to know the kind of GPU I should go for, particularly, what role does the GPU memory play and how much of a difference does it make to choose 2080 over 1660/1650 NVIDIA cards.
I was suggested that NVIDIA Quadro GPUs are the best suited for CUDA based calculations, any inputs about the compatibility of these cards with Ryzen processors would also be helpful.
PS: I am looking for a low budget setup since I will be using it at home!
