Hello

Will there be a big performance difference between a i7 4770K and a i7 4930k when using lightwave?

Not only for Lightwave, but for everything. But especially for CPU intensive programs like Lightwave or any other 3D software. Even better would be to get both and use the 4770K as a render node.

I have a old q6600 system that I can use for the render node.

But I might build a FX 8350 pc first and use that as the render node when I build the i7 4930K pc.

One of my nodes is a Q6600, and believe me, it's much slower than my 3930k. As for the FX 8350, I would pass if I were you. AMD at this point is just way below Intel offerings. I looked up benchmarks on it because it was on sale and I thought about building a render node with it, thinking the 8 cores might bring the goods, but on benchmarks it's about as good as the 4 core 4770k, but with the added problem that it consumes a lot more power. When you start building a home render farm, power consumption is important, not only because of your power bill, but because you residential installation may not be able to cope with it. Intel chips nowadays consume far less power.
