Hey all:
I'm considering purchasing an inexpensive computer for net rendering.
If I purchase a 64 bit processor (ie AMD Athlon 64 3800+), is it possible that I would run into compatibility problems?

Thanks.

I have 3 AMD X2 (4600) for rendering only. My main system is a dual opteron.

The only compatibility problems I have heard of is when Intel and AMD are mixed, something with how computations for procedural textures are handled.

Advice I received when setting up my network was stick either with AMD or Intel, not to mix them.

Hope this helps
