Hi guys,

I'm just looking to add another pc to the Dual Xeon 2.8 system that I've got
at the moment so I've got two quick machines in my studio, while I wait for
a much faster system next year.

I've just had a quote on the system below:

Black or Beige Midi Tower Case (2 x 120mm chassis fans)
500W Antec NeoHE PSU
Intel 945 Chipset Motherboard
Intel Pentium D950 3.4 GHz Dual Core Processor
2 GB DDR2 533 SDRAM
200 GB SATA Hard Drive (7200 RPM, 8 MB Cache)
256 MB nVidia GeForce 7900 GT PCI Express Video Card
Intel HiDefinition 8.1 Sound Card
DVD Writer
3" 1.44 MB Floppy Drive
On board Gigabit Network Card
Windows XP Pro

Total Cost: 920+VAT

I'm mainly interested in the speed of the dual core processor compared with
my dual xeon 2.8, would it be about the same for rendering speed? I've had a
look at Chris's benchmarks page but it's not clear what to compare this
processor with...

Cheers,
Alex

I would ask where the SATA II drive is.
