Farm system requirements?

Hi All,

For a future project I’m considering getting a few machines together to build a relatively small farm for producing animations. How much should a given machine have in terms of CPU and RAM? I suspect it might be more cost-effective to buy up some used systems, but I don’t want to add systems to the farm that are just going to underperform. I’ve searched the forums but haven’t come up with an answer to this.

Any advice?


whats your budget like? odds are you can get a decent machine for around $100 bucks if you do some shopping
