I want to build a really small render farm for my studio.
I have some questions
My work machine is I7 -2600k and I have two more CPU's that I plan to put in a render cluster.One I7 - 2600k and one I7 -750.
I have some money that I want to spend to increase farms processing power.
So I read that it is better to have more machines with less cpu power than to have two or three high power cpu's.Is this true?
So my main question is should I buy two I5 cpu's and than I will have 4 machines in a farm plus my work machine,or should i buy one more I7-2600 and than have a 3 machines render farm and my main machine ?
The idea is to setup a small farm for now...but to gradually increase it's strenght
we will be using Maya,Cinema 4D and After Effects
Any advice regarding this is more than welcome
oh and English is not my first language so there are probably some spelling errors
