Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum. Sorry if I'm not posting under the right topic. I'm about to build a new system and had couple of questions regarding the hardwares.
Does anyone know how much faster vue renders scenes with an i7-920 versus i7-950 CPU (assuming there is no overcloking involved). I'm looking for actual numbers (secs) for the same render.
My second question is about graphic cards. If I install a card with 1700 mb of ram, does it mean that my system will have less free memory available?? (my system will have 12 gb of ram but still...)
below is some parts of the system I'm building. I'd appreciate any help/suggestions. thanks!!
Case: Raidmax Tornado ATX-238WY
PSU: Antec TruePower Quattro 850W
CPU: Intel Core i7 920, 2.66GHz
CPU FAN: ASUS Triton 81
BOARD: ASUS Intel X58 P6T
RAM: 12GB (6 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 MHz--Corsair
