Not too sure where to put this post! I’m hoping this is the place
I’m in need of a little advice. I have an up an comming animation project using open source applications.
I’m interested to know what your collective advice is regarding OS and hardware.
I’m currently running (it’s dated I know, hence the upgrade;)): -
3200Mhz 64bit AMD
Nvidia 6600GT Ultra
32bit Windows XP
I’m faily happy with the current results that I have achived, but this latest project will tax this quite heavily.
Ok now for the specific questions: -
What OS is reccomended? Window$ or Linux?
Is there an OS that Blender runs better on? (Ubuntu studio???)
What is the reccomeded hardware setup
This system will be a dedicated blender workstation.
For example what GFX is better (E.G. Nvidia vs ATI etc) I would like to have a dual head rig if my budget can stretch.
I hear that core 2 duo is kicking butt vs AMD’s offerings???
Are there any items I should go for as a must, or anything I should stay 100 miles away from?
Any advice is welcomed
