I am looking at building a computer to use mainly with Blender.
I would like to put in my Premiere with my Matrox RX 100 as well. I have been reading (Tomshardware.com and anandtech.com) for tips and checking out stuff on Cell processor and gpu acceleration.
It seems like Multi core cpu’s is the best way currently to get the most power.
Here are a couple of specs I think that I want.
Dual booting(XP and Linux).
Most power for the dollar.
Quad core ready(Maybe even dual quad???)
Lots of ram 2gb
My question is will blender make use of multi thread beyond two threads soon? It looks like Pov Ray will in 3.7. What about yarfar in the future?
How long should I wait? Quads are really fast but will the work flow make use of the power?
