i would like to upgrade or buy a new system but dont know the best way to do so.
i currently have a P4 2.4ghz, 1gig ram, and a gforce mx graphics card (real crap i believe) running win2k and working with max 5
the machine does well for a while but really feels the pain with huge wire frames and particularly the light tracer renders.
if i was to upgrade my graphics card (£1000 budget) where would i see the improvement? im assuming the redraw whilst working onscreen would be much much better but would my rendering times increase? or is this a processor/ram issue?
any help would be greatly appreciated.
