Hello. I'm looking at purchasing a pc that will manly be used for 3D Rendering and Animation. I will probably use it for gaming, but that is not the main focus. My budget as of right now is about $1500. I was wondering what components I should pour more of my budget into. Would an RTX 2070 be a sufficient GPU? Also is it easy to find a motherboard capable of utilizing two GPUs with my budget?

3D & animation work is cpu intense, 6 to 12 cores. The more cores the faster the work gets done. Your GPU is secondary as it only displays. 16 GB's of RAM minimum. This would be a case where more than that can help, but is not critical. The issue with a MOBO (most can) that you can install a second GPU is you have to watch what speed the second slot runs at. Most of them will run a second slot at half the speed, so a second GPU will not get you double the performance. Again for this type of work it is not critical. This more for visual improvement with gaming.
Intel is the industry leader for the most part and I especially like Nvidia GPU's. Intel & Nvidia will cost you more. Nvidia for the performance gain is overpriced. I am running an AMD system with an Nvidia GPU myself. To keep you cost in check the system listed below has an AMD 12 core cpu running 24 threads this will help blow through work compared to a quad, six or eight core CPU. Using an AMD GPU with decent performance will shave another $200.00 to $300.00 off the system price but will perform fine. Now AMD typically runs hotter so I selected a case that comes with 6 fans and included a 240mm sealed cpu coolers. Included an ultra fast NVMe drive for blazing fast boot & load times and a 1TB platter drive for storage. Started with 16GB's of RAM which you can install an additional 16GB's in the future.
This is a general beast. Base price $1,616.00 use checkout code spring0410 or NORUSH for 5% off the total gets you to $1,536.00. I also included the ultra care packing to protect it form UPS, the premium warranty which gets you a full year of free shipping in case you need to send it or a component in for work and the professional wiring. These total about $60.00. This MOBO also has two PCIe 16 slots for dual GPU's without performance loss (you won't need it).
You can't beat this for what your wanting to do without a serious price increase.
