Render nodes
show user profile  mike_renouf
I'm finally going to take the plunge and buy a couple of render nodes. I've got a good project to work on and the render time advantage would be really worth forking out for.

I'm torn between these two options:

Obviously they're both pre-built, so I'm paying for that benefit, but I don't like building PCs and running the risk of breaking something. Do you think I'd need the 16GB of ram - 8 would probably do for a render node? or 1TB hard drive? probably the 500MB would suffice?

Would be good to hear your thoughts.
Mike
