    245 KB processing power~! Anonymous 09/22/11(Thu)22:45 No.233935  
    So my birthday is coming up and i was thinking of making some upgrades to my computer. windows ranks everything in my system pretty high other than my processor. its not shit, its a amd phenom IIx4 945 3.0 ghz. i want to stay with amd because of the price and just because they are my preference so what do you think. suggestions on what processor to get? i have an am3 socket on my motherboard.

    pic unrelated. its a still from my final( as of 3 nights ago.)

    I hope you fail that final, for the repuation of your school.

    And if you were serious you would know that the answer is always to build a farm. If you dont have money for one, then you dont really need to upgrade anyways

    ide much prefer constructive crits if your going to crit at all(which i didnt ask for.) also dont crit me because i dont care what an anon has to say about my work especially when its in the roughed out phase.

    go back to /b

    Woah... you need to seriously hit some Gnomon tutorials, it seems to me that what you need is not a upgrade on your computer specs, but rather your texture skills. i hope this is just the starting point and not the actual final product of your project
    >> Anonymous 09/22/11(Thu)23:57 No.233943
    again. im not asking for a crit of my work. also if you read the post i said that this is a rough. textures, lighting and render settings arnt even near completion. i was still in the modelidng phase and put on some very general textures to get a sense of what i was doing. i know this is 4chan and all but i thought that us in /3 had more class than to troll all day long.


    still dont care. not going to waste my time going to your deviant art account.

    I wouldn't upgrade the processor, the increase in performance would probably be quite small, especially compared to the cost. (Or just see for yourself:

    Of course it might depend on your specific situation, which I can't say I know. But especially if you're short on money, it might be a better idea to save the money.
    >> Anonymous 09/23/11(Fri)00:23 No.233945
    hm. i was hoping that adding more cores would reduce render time. not sure if thats the case but considering it would add more buckets( in mental ray) ide assume it would.
    >> Anonymous 09/23/11(Fri)00:43 No.233950
    It might depend on what kind and how much of rendering you usually do, and how much time it generally takes. Mental ray seems to benefit a lot from multiple cores and it seems to support render farms, but it's good to ask yourself if the increase would be a necessity or more like a luxury.
    >> Anonymous 09/23/11(Fri)00:46 No.233951

    hm. ill have to think on that one.
    >> Anonymous 09/23/11(Fri)00:52 No.233954
    Also, note that I'm not saying that you should never upgrade your computer, but it might be better to wait for a few years before you do that. And it's also a matter of your financial situation.
    >> Anonymous 09/23/11(Fri)01:00 No.233956

    yea i mean, at this point my computer is two years old. ive upgraded from 4 gigs to 8 gigs of ram. my graphix card might need an upgrade and my cpu may as well but like you said it comes down to the financial situation. my school is just now getting a render farm set up so i may just allow my renders to be done there. btw my graphix car is an nvideo gtx 285.

    and when i compare something like this

    to my processor, for the price it seems like a really good deal. unless im missing something, this seems like a pretty big upgrade form a quadcore 3.0
    >> Anonymous 09/23/11(Fri)01:51 No.233963
    Yeah, it might not be a bad upgrade if you spend much time rendering and it's not a very big investment, but it's also not that bad of an idea to wait. I doubt either is the worst decision you'll make during your life, but you're in a much better position to decide than I ever will be.

    check if your motherboard supports phenom II x6, the 1100T goes for ~200$ (just noticed you've already seen that one), and it's the best amd consumer cpu at the moment. ram costs are incredibly low, so you could get another 8gb for ~50$ (if you've got some free slots). i've got such a system 3 days ago and i'm really impressed by the performance. if you decide to upgrade your graphics card, you might want to avoid nvidia 400 series cards, since they have crippled opengl performance.
    >> Anonymous 09/23/11(Fri)03:01 No.233971
    hmm. trying to figure out how i know if its compatible or not. i have msi 785gm e65 motherboard. do i just look for am3 socket comparability or is there more to it than just that.
    >> Anonymous 09/23/11(Fri)03:29 No.233974

    Processor Types AMD Phenom II X3, X4

    Looks like it doesn't.
    >> Anonymous 09/23/11(Fri)05:07 No.233992
    it looks that it DOES support it, you will most probably need to update the BIOS
    damn it man, why are you saving money on motherboard? cheap-ass microATX, wtf?

    This is relevant to my interests. I've heard that was the reason why 3ds max performs so poorly. I have a 460 and max is so fucking slow and unstable, is that true?
    >> Anonymous 09/23/11(Fri)14:48 No.234032
    I have 9800GT and 3ds max runs fine for me.
    >> Anonymous 09/23/11(Fri)15:04 No.234033
    I'm going to try my old 9600GT right now. If it works I'm going to have to dick slap someone at nvidia. I bought the 460 to get into 3d, if its true that nvidia crippled performance I'm selling this piece of shit right now and going ati.

    oh idk. when i was shopping i was just trying to get a good rig under 1500(back in 08 or 09 i cant remember) i knew what iw anted in terms of memory and graphics card but didnt know, and still dont know, much about cpu and motherboards. if you care to enlighten me be my guest.
