The fact that my next revision of “Riverbend” has taken so long to render is one of the reasons I decided to bite the bullet and purchase my new workstation this morning. Here’s a screenshot of my final order but the main specs are thus: Dual six-core Xeon 3.46 GHz, 48 GB Ram, 240 GB SSD (Intel 510), and a single GTX 590 (for now). Believe it or not I saved nearly $6k building from scratch!

Thanks to everyone who helped out by signing up or renewing over the past few months. As always, I couldn’t do any of this without your support. Hopefully this machine will keep me rendering for the next five or six years!
