Potential Build for 3d Animation Rendering - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Howdy, yall!

Might want to check out the performance of similarly-priced Intel CPUs before you jump the gun there, partner.

Thanks for the advice guys. If you really want to push the boundaries of what I'm willing to spend you can remove any need for a hard drive and cd drive. I have an extra lightscribe drive in my main desktop right now, as well as a 160gb, a 500gb, and an 80gb that could be put in there. I've heard good and bad about rendering with strictly the gpu as well, so if anyone knew anything about gpu rendering and thought it was a good route I'd be willing to not worry about the cpu much and get a little better gpu. $500 is my upper limit with a hard drive, $450 without. It's not that I cannot afford more, just that I'm only willing to spend a certain amount to begin with. However if there was a deal for say $500 without any drives that was just this astronomical amazing value, I could do that.

Thanks again

Just updated the system in my sig to be up to date. Any and all of the parts in it are transferable except the 2tb. This machine will be demoted to a media server/toy when I get the new machine, which I may have neglected to mention absolutely will need a video card to support 3 1080p monitors. This machine is NOT for gaming. I have the 360s for that. haha

You should be looking at something like this:http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboB...t=Combo.661396

If you need gpu acceleration, then pick up a cheap gt 240, anything nvidia would be beneficial for 3d rendering.

Then he should go for a Llano APU stuff once they are on the market.

Well I have something against it... not because of the platform (though it should be noted that the i5 2400 will not allow for any overclocking headroom) but because it's a DIY combo, that means they stick you with a potentially unreliable PSU and other parts that aren't the best value for your money.

Above looks good, but should be reminded that unheatsinked 4+1 phase is not ideal for x6 125W processors
My motherboard suggestion would go to the M5A97 EVO

Relevant Wing, your build was missing a PSU and Case. I'll only push it to $500 if everything is included. Thanks though
