New system for Rendering - Need suggestions - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Oh boy, does Subdivision suck.

Two Rendering machines with Quads come late july would be SOOO bad-ass for a mini-render farm. You just don't even know.

If you just want one machine, base it around Q6600's and spend the rest of the money on Raid and Ram. They'll both improve, as you already know, render times.

Also, you wouldn't exactly NEED a good video card for the second machine, because it'll just be an extra leg for CPU process. That's how it's distributed between machines if I recall correctly.

You could get one machine with a Q6600, the other with an E6300 and do better than you could with a decked out single machine.

Very nice idea. Do you think my current card(GeForce 6800 Ultra 256MB AGP) could be used in the 2nd machine? And then get a MB with a single AGP slot for it. Also on a render farm, do you know if the 2nd machine would need good/fast ram? I could probably dismantle my current machine, get a new MB/proc for it and still use the same case/video card and possibly ram to save quite a bit of money.

Then go with Q6600s for both machines after July 22nd. Get a 8800GTX for the main machine along with the best ram and MB? It seems that with the price drop after the 22nd I could afford this setup.
