Bumping this one, I have the same question.

I'm primary looking for fast rendering of Radiosity scenes, hi resolution singel frame product images.

(Considering a P4 650 Prescott 3.4Ghz, on a ASUS P5AD2-E Deluxe 925XE and 2 or 3GB of DDR2 PC4200 CAS2.5 533MHz)

Unfortunately Xeon motherboard, CPU's and RAM will totaly drain my wallet, although I'm happy to be wrong on that one :)

Any thoughts on what's a equal AMD setup?
