    Node Video cards

    Just a quick questain, i have just set up ScreamerNet and all is fine, i am now looking ant getting some more nodes, my questain is when a node is rendering from Sreamernet does it use the video card at all, eg do i need to buy a good quaility video card for the nodes or will a cheap one do, just trying to save costs the best i can.

    Thank you for any help

    PS i Know this should be in the screamernet area but well, it is and after 15 views no one answer, just hoping i will get a better reaction from here

    thanks

    The video card doesn't matter at all.
    On our farm, some of the boxes have 6 year old PCI boards with 2MB installed (that just barely work with W2K), no problems whatsoever.

    Also, have a look at RealVNC or UltraVNC for remoter management of the nodes.

    Cheers,

    ...just unlucky I guess. I usually look at all new posts once per day, and probably overlooked yours.

    ..you could have just bumped it too to see what'll happen

    Cheers,
