Now that is one hellava computer system. You just have to love the way it look so much like a star wars set (in the death star perhaps?) as well though, especially with the roomba cleaner there to get under storm troopers feet.

Anyway, just thought you lot might be interested in the story.

need moar numbers plz. :p

I wanna know how much my planned computer setup can do effects-wise, cause I'm hoping to set up a mini render farm.

A render potted plant, perhaps IG?

Well, yeah, in comparison to the beast that is ILM render farm, it'll probably be a render seedling. :p

Anyone know of some way of benchmarking a hypothetical comp setup or at least some numbers that'll help me visualize?
