ok so my brother, with all his wisdom, “updates” his computer every six months; so needless to say his room becomes a computer part graveyard many of his parts are scattered about haphazardly. i now have all of his “useless” parts now and can probably build three PCs running at 1GHz or more from intel to AMD, i just dont know what exactly to do with them.
he says theres some sort of problem with them but hes also the one who thought he burnt out his CPU/Motherboard. so im not quite sure i would be able to sell them. Plus i have this real hankering to create a [announcer voice] SUPERCOMPUTER [/voice] to do all of my rendering of video/blender
i guess the real question is would creating a renderfarm of sorts; be helpful or worth the trouble?
like i’ve read that beowulf clusters are good at doing a large problem but not so much at doing smal problems(3d), and it takes just as much time transfering it across the LAN than just rendering it on my PC. ive also found apps like dr queue, and i think someone is working on a plugin of somesorts.
btw i am beginning to use cinelerra and am using blender
any help with this would be greatly appreciated
