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:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sphere-PC-Intel-Haswell-Quad-Core-i7-4790-3-6GHz-8GB-RAM-500GB-USB3-0-Computer/201101339978?_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D29318%26meid%3D883943b3eb314c4e91f44daa36efd254%26pid%3D100009%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D10%26sd%3D321251041198

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
