Looking for CPU

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.

  1. I believe server CPUS are better at that.

    So Opterons or Xeons.

    These two articles show the difference between a desktop and server CPU when running 3ds

    AMD Opteron (Shanghai) 2376 - Should be a good bang for your buck
