Hi,

Need a recomendation on a new desktop off the shelf, with a 64 bit X2 processor with a good graphics card? Dell, HP or ? In addition, will 32 bit programs also run well on this desktop? Thanks!

32bit apps for the most part will be just fine. Unless they rely on some driver that hasnt yet been converted to 64bit.

Well. last I checked if you want a Dell with X2, as in AMD X2 that would need to be an Alienware workstation since they just bought that company.

It really depends on how you work I guess. I am a total piece of crap when it comes to LW and the stuff I do would cause Newtek to sue me if I ever made it public it is so bad.

So for me to pay a premium on a kick butt machine is probably not worth it.

Try to consider the benifet of the premium system vs the really good system + an extra render node.

It is soooo much fun to buy a great machine, but for the money you might get more done depending on what you do.
