Advice on hardware for NAMD

Dear All,

I am looking towards upgrading my workstation and would like inputs about hardware keeping in view the current NAMD versions and future updates/versions.

1. Does ECC certified versus non-ECC RAM make any difference?
2. RTX 30 series GPUs are hard to find. Looking at the readily available alternatives, I wonder what are the things I should look into apart from the boost speed and number of CUDA cores. Does NAMD benefit from VRAM size, high RT and tensor core counts, etc.?

Thanks in advance for your help.
