I have two extra computers in my apartment, both are 1ghz+  desktops but have crappy one board videocards. Am not sure if i will install linux or windows but might go linux because of cost. I want to set them up as render servers. What affects the speed of the render is it a better chip or video card, or both? Or RAM? Please advise, thank you for your time!

Hi edgardoburgos,

For the Render what you require is the Speed (Cpu) and the RAM.
As for the RAM, I usually don't go below 1 GB, but it all depends on your scene size,
you better be safe with some extra RAM buffer instead of hitting the virtual memory and killing the render speed.

You will have to copy lwsn.exe to that PC in order for Screamernet to work.

Video card is NOT important for the rendering nodes, as in a rendering, you will not see Frames, but you will see Screamerner screean (like DOS) with text only.

In order for you to run Screamernet, you have to have lwsn.exe that works on the operating system (Windows for example).
I don't think Windows lwsn.exe will run on linux.

I hope this helps.
