    Hardware

    I think it's relevant if we're talking about animation and modelling /

    So, what kinda rigs do you guys have? Currently I'm on my laptop since my desktop mobo died on me (along with the CPU and ram). But I'm looking forward to pairing a UD9 + 980x with a FX5800 (or two if I get the cash). Oh and I'll keep my 4 gtx480 cards at hand, just in case /

    As far as monitors go I have a few crappy TN panels (mainly gaming stuff, also 3x Acer's GD235HZ), a Cintiq 21UX and a 2408WFP for my PVA needs.

    All the other stuff comes in at another 8 grand for my desktop.

    And yes, I worked my ass off for that money

    Mine opens up 3d programs.
    Nuff said.

    Alright fine, mine is
    Compaq Presario CQ60 Notebook PC
    AMD Sempron SI-42 2.10 GHz
    Vista 32 Bit
    3 Gigs of RAM.
    ($300 cheapest I could find )


    I say it's good for the money, but the graphics card is just so-so :/

    Like I said, it opens the program so it's good enough for me!

    mine is... but how is it even possible to get an os working on Celeron idd say he already got powned by saying: laggy sometimes...


    Celeron is an cheap ass chip pulled together from low powered cpu's trow in cache here ... ad some part of this chip there hey we have a new one its called Celeron < trust me its one of the worst ever to be released even a pentium D could pown it or an amd atom. what kind of socket do you have... maybe a dual core can fit in those are quite cheap but WAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY better.

    (owyeah one thing who can beat ur pc... 4xsli 480 latest frikken nvidia there is, come on did you get a free Nvidia 3d allong with it... i mean u wont get trouble running crysis/GTA IV at full max and max screen height/width)

    When I get some stable income I might be getting the 5600. Depends on how serious I want to get.

    Imo quadros aren't worth it unless you're really into it. And I wouldn't have gone for the 5800 if I couldn't have gotten it second hand from a guy I trust.

    Yeah the 5600 is quite pricy. Also comes down on how much money I'll have to splurge around in the future. I guess it's me but I always go overkill on things.
