It should really rock though when I finally receive the new machine and get it set up!
Core3 i7-975 CPU @ 3.33GHz
6GB Multi-Channel DDR3 RAM at 1066MHZ *
ATI Radeon HD4870X2 2048MB Video Card **
I can’t hardly wait to render some of my old scenes again, (scenes where I had actually recorded how long the original render times were) and see what the speed difference is! It should be noticeably faster I would think (hope).
* I really wish it had 12GB of RAM, but to configure this same computer with that amount of RAM was going to be another $2100!! GULP!!! So 6GB will have to be enough.
** Yeah, I know the GeForce series video cards have been reported as being better – but lately I’ve also been hearing good things about the ATI cards too, so I’ll give it a try and see what happens.
