It works!

I’m setting up my new machine :slight_smile:

A Dual Athlon MP 2200 With 1Gb RAM
a Asus V8170 GeForce4MX
2 60Gb ATA100 disks in RAID 0 via FastTrack100 card

Now, let’s see how Blender runs 8)

Congratulations you deserve a new computer. Better hope Blender works good on it, it would be a shame to get rid of such a good computer set-up :wink:

Can anyone reccomed a good mother board that would allow me to go upward with better AMD cpus in the future. Money is limitied now, so I am thinking of a approx 1.8 ghz AMD cpu BUT I would like to go upward later next year. ALSO it is essentail that they MB have no problems with the ATI RADEON ALL-IN-Wonder vid board.

maby consider a Quadro (if you haven’t already bought the GeForce)

how long were your rendering times on your old PC compaired to what they are now? I have some render times going up into the hours…NOW who needs a new PC :x :wink:

Nice system! To bad Blender isn’t threaded so it could use both processors for rendering.

dual athlon mp 2200 oh my!!!

I’ve just got 1 issue with that computer,… which is the geforce 4mx (I’m really not a fan of the 4mx series :))

But other than that sweet comp!

Well… it was most likely a bad disk crash…
they should come this morning, take the baby, go to the clinic, change disk/controller/motherboard/whatever and bring it back…

I’m depressed.


(malefico) #18

Sorry to hear that about the disk crash. I think you’re going to be fine soon.

Otherwise… YOU S.O.B !!! :wink:
