I recently found a great source of heavily discounted refurbished Xeon processors, this set me thinking to build a dual Xeon system instead of defaulting on a i7-4790K.
Ofcourse it has to be able to accomodate a good modern gfx card, so PCI-e 3.0 x16 slots are a must, and this narrows it down, but still there are possibilities here.
But before i go out and dump hard earned cash into something crazy, it seems a good idea if any of you folks here have experience with performance gains from such a choice.
As far as i am aware especially the building of lighting is very cpu intensive. On the other hand, if it saves 20 minutes on something you do twice a week… well…
Opinions anyone ?
