Looking for CPU Tags: CPUs Rendering Games Product Last response: April 17, 2009 3:19 PM in CPUs Share mihaius April 17, 2009 8:50:09 AM Hello, I'm looking for a good CPU, to use it for 3ds Max. Can you give me some advice? I can pay about $250 for it. I don't need it for games, just rendering in 3ds Max. If you have experience in this, please give me a piece of advice. Thank you.
