So me and a friend want to start making some games using Blender and the UDK engine. We want to sell these games, and be able to make them without 35 hour rendertimes so I was looking at some parts to possibly build some good computers. This is what I was I was looking at.
CPU: i7 4820k
RAM: G Skill Ares 32gb
Boot/Program Storage Drive: Samsung 840 Pro 256gb
Storage Drive: 2x WD Green 2tb

Case: NZXT Tempest 410
MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-X79-UP4 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Green HD's are good for storage that is accessed now and again. I wouldn't use them as a secondary drive for anything. They are too slow. You will need to render or copy to them back and forth lots and they do no hold up to that. Storing a few movies that a couple of DLNA devices will access a couple of times a night, they are fine for that.

A better CPU and high speed RAM like DDR3-2133+ can greatly reduce rendering times.

Thank you
