I'm planning to get a new rig for <2Keuro for AE, shotophop, 3dsmax mostly.
Following the current suggestions I'll propably go Amd X2 440-the delux asus board etc.
I have an old machine (dual PIII800) with a scsi controller Adaptec 29160 (u2w lvd i think:D )
driving a raid 0 of atlas 10K disks, for rendering etc.
Now, do I remove it from the old machine, which won't be doing heavy render loads and plug it in the new, or would a Sata(2) raid controller-maybe onboard- with a sata raid of Raptors 10K be better, quiter, faster, less power hungry?
vga card: Which would be efficient<300euro?
asus? gigabyte? based on nvidia? ati?
I will be using my 2 19' crts @ 1280x1024@ 85-1oohz each= 2560x1024 desktop
Mostly AE, and not too complex 3dsmax work.
Ram: 2 or 4 gb to work, render ram previews etc decently?
I've read in here that asus has good products but bad support.
Is it true?
Is it good to buy mobo vga from the same brand?
How about gigabyte?
I have 2 systems with their mobo and have been happy up to now..
Thanks in advance,
