good afternoon to all,


i am interested to know if i can use a server or a blade server for 3d and video rendering


i thinking to offer a 3d and video rendering service and i have all ready decided to buy soon i hope a dell t5500 workstation


a friend of mine who is an architect told me that it is a better choice to buy three or more servers or blade servers like the ibm x3655 for network 3d and video rendering


after a little research i found such as an imb x3655 with two opteron 2222 at 3.0 ghz, 16 gb or ram, a sas 146 gb and a dvdrw for euros 148 plus shipping


if i buy lets say three of those servers will cost me only 444 euros plus shipping which is a much cheaper price than buying the dell t5500


as far i know server cannot run any windows xp, nor they have any sound card nor  a pci-e card for a video card


please, i wish to know if i can control that server from my windows xp pc and if i can run any network 3d and video rendering in general


program i have are


daz bryce 5.5

sony vegas pro 8 (support network rendering)

rendering plugins for 3d studio max, autocad and rhino


any comments and advice would be really nice


many thanks in advance
