Right now we are using AutoDesk Entertainment Suite and have a need for a render solution.

With 2 of us doing the modeling, lip-syncing and animation up until now the solution for rendering was to have 6 office computers (HPz800 Workstations) render at night using BackBurner.

We have hit a limit and are now looking at the options for rending solutions in house.

I am sure there are a few people much more experienced with this than i am.....

What would be the best investment and best performance for a render solution :

- 1 server loaded down with CPUs for rendering

// OR //

- Buy a few (5) gaming PCs (just the box) and setup a render farm
- -

Any and all suggestions, links, feedback or specs are more than welcome.
