I have the 2 dual Xeon's, which are fast but i still need something to see my animation results faster. some input would be much appreciated.

Do you have Fprime?

yes, i am actually getting that today, as we speak. I know that will help me out alot but it doesn't render volumetrics. I read about the pure card the other day and i was wandering if it was compatible with lightwave. If it is not, is there anything out there for lightwave that is similar to the pure card

You say you're doing animations right? Get another computer and network them together. Then do a search, or read the manual on how to use ScreamerNet. The cool thing about LW is that you get unlimited render nodes, so you can build a render farm of any size you can afford. But each computer will only be rendering one frame at a time. So if you're rendering an animation this would help you greatly. Still frames however won't benefit from network rendering.
