I was thinking of making like a budget render farm as I do quite a bit of 3D animation & modelling. I was thinking of doing something like this http://helmer.sfe.se/. I was wondering if anyone would know how much this would roughly cost to setup. I think the setup on the site uses linux but I assume you could also use Windows.
I would also use the rig for a lot of other stuff like file conversion and that sort of stuff.
