Subject: What videocard.... ?
Dear friends, i bought a new computer with a AMD 8 core 4 ghz computer, and 16 mb ? RAM installed. the videocard is a 512 md card so a little small, right ? The rendertime in compare to my old quad 2.4 ghz computer istn very big. Also rendering my large scenes sometime gives me a out of Memory error. So my questions:
1. what card do i need, when i use my processor for rendering when i only want to spend up to about 70euros ? ASUS with about 2GB, Nvidea compatible, enough ?
I use C4D in 32 bits mode, what will i win when using the 64 bits mode ?
Graphics cards do not render.
A 2gb Graphics card would be useful for large scenes with lots of textures...
Most modern cards are very capable of handling million+ polys now.
Have a look at Cinebench scores to help you decide.
it'll be 16GB ram.
8core AMD vs Quad 2.4
Maybe the quad used hyper threading and the AMD doesn't..... making them only slightly different in render speeds.
