So just keep in mind, that later on you can add good gpu without to much hassle.
Very true Walli. I am also going to look into After Effects network rendering and see if they currently use the GPU, otherwise it might make sense to do that. The only issue I have is in bigger type companies where policy and procedure are more important than common sense, I might only have one opportunity for a while to get the capex for the render farm.
