    Hi all I have been trying to set up the computer for 3D animation(fully rendered) and modelling but I am trying to set it up to work as fast as it can. I am rendering a building with shadows lights etc which renders fine for pictures but takes days to render 1024*800 avi 30fps 1800frames ( yes I know thats alot but i'm trying to push the envelope). I've stripped windows down to no extra processes barebones etc. When the computer renders snimation in presentation mode i notice that processors only go to 100% when its trying to present me a realtime video image.

    Heres my specs
    Handbuilt
    XP home SP2 (as im not about to switch to vista,pro etc)
    BFG 7950GTOC 512mb gddr3 PCI-e Driver 162.50 from autodesk
    intel dual core 6420 @2.13 ghz
    3gig ram (4GIG INSTALLED BUT I KNOW IT WON'T TAKE IT IN HOME) (all the same Ram info pc2 5300 cls 240-pin dimm) (model KVR667D2N5K2/2G)
    300gb sata HD MAXTOR
    Mother board is a Asus P5N32-SLI premium WI-FI AP SOLO
    I've updated 3d config with .xml file with the latest version as of today.

    ANY IDEAS ON BEEFING UP MY COMPUTER THROUGH BIOS OC DOFTWARE ETC ETC?

    AS WELL OUR OFFICE MAY BE PLANNING ON MOVING TO 2008 i DO SEE THAT THIS WILL THIS HELP THIS CARD BUT I DON'T THINK IT WILL IMPROVE ITS PERFORMANCE ANY MORE THAN IT IS NOW

    For furture considerations given the mobo and the other specs can you tell me maybe a better configuration and maybe even card types or better processing power?

    I am aware I can do a pentium quad processor.

    I am also looking to do better in the video card department later on. What is the best cards (price range 900-2000 and 300-900). I know quadro fits the bill but which one, what Am i looking for when I'm buying one etc etc.

    Also I notice a lot of dell quadros for sale on ebay anything to be aware of?

    Also not being an expert on ram is the ram causing me grief in any way?

    Is there any way to set up the ram properly in the bios menu?

    I know I can take advantage of the 4 gigs but im not about to switch to any new os as they have too many bugs and 64-bit OS are extremely hard to find drivers.

    Oh an I plan on sticking with this system right now as it's more a cost thing than anything else at the moment.
