Is my sig rig adequate for heavy 3D Rendering? - Page 4

I have tried to sell my sig rig several times so I can try to build a new rig but somehow I think the fact that it has an AMD cpu and motherboard keeps people from truly being interested. This rig is really good for games and such but as they say, if it ain't Intel it's not Intelligent. tongue.gif

See it to a friend who trusts you about computer parts, I did that with my old AMD setup. Now it rune perfect for all of his needs and he couldnt be happier, I gave him one hell of a deal though. $180 for a 955 + mobo and 5770. xD

You will not be buying for 2 years.I would certainly wait and see what developments have reached the retail market by then.How are the employment figures for the field you have an interest in? things are pretty bleak except for the people that choose to train for the right skill set.Simply because your school costs are low does not mean you should not make best from what is offered.

I am taking a course in game design at UAT (University of Advancing Technology) And as you can see via the link below there are a decent array of jobs I could get with this field. Not only with this can I develop 3D models for games but I can also help design various products for development such as computer cases and other misc objects.
( helping to improve case design would be sweet tongue.gif )

See bottom of page for: "BUREAU OF LABOR STATISTICS" and "SOC MEDIAN SALARIES"
http://majors.uat.edu/Game-Design/


I have also considered their "Technology Product Development" course as an alternative as it leads to Graphic Design and/or Commercial and Industrial Design. The C&I Design jobs potentially pay better and there are a wider variety of jobs to consider in that field, Although I chose the Game Design course because it seemed more entertaining. redface.gif

Here is the webpage relevant to Commercial and/or Industrial design statistics as well as the UAT "Technology Product Development" page.

Edit:
If I was smart I would go for UATs "Advancing Computer Science" degree, however all that coding could be potentially boring for me and I'm not the best at math. I could and "will" learn math though as I won't squander my once in a lifetime chance to have all my college costs payed off. This is one helluva an opportunity to succeed well in life and I won't ruin it just because Advanced mathematics bores me to tears. graduated.gif

Fateful,take all the Bureau of Labor stats with a grain of salt.You can be absolutely sure that courses heavy in math,chemistry,biology will lead you to a good job.I see it in my school a lot.The digital arts classes fill up fast (everyone likes to take pictures) but the classes that teach networking fundementals,well they are not so popular,too much actual thinking involved.

How many people on this very forum begin their post in the security networking section "I am not very good at networking but could you help"?

I have thought about the networking engineering course they have but I can't stand Networking as it is, I find it to be jumbled mess of programming hat makes no sense to me how it can even work. I can learn programming with a good learning curve but networking just goes above my head.

Edit:
Help me figure all this out, I have a couple weeks to make up my mind before I start the final paperwork and then it off to Arizona to get to work. I have been a bum for far too long and it's going to be crazy adjusting to a faster paced environment that far from home. I had my mind set on Game design but the reality is that those types of jobs are getting harder and harder to fill these days and a programming job would net me more money and more job types but I absolutely can't stand it. On second thought maybe it is the perfect job for me. lachen.gif

What kind of rendering? Wouldn't typical gaming graphic design needs require a gpu rather than a cpu? I do post-rendered stuff, so my cpu does the work.

Idk, I want to design 3D environments such as cities and multi-player maps for games. I was told that I would need a heavy duty render machine for that job.

<---Autodesk Power user.

That being said: the moar coarz logic only really applies for ridiculously heavy rendering with Inventor Autocad and Design Studio (physics tests, stress tests, heat tests, on multi thousand part assemblies)
A 2600k would do you well, but turn HT off, because it won't help you in the slightest. Id also reccomend if you can manage it a Quadro card. Trust me on this one. However the biggest thing I can stress is that HT is bad, and whoever said about HDD murder is right, I'm on my 8th set of HDDs in our render rig at school.
