affordable system to run maya??
on Sep 29, 2009 at 2:21:06 am

My wife is learning Maya and we need to decide on a system to run it affordably here at home. The range of options and details on systems is bewildering. Obviously, one could spend $10k on a system; but will one of the affordable gaming systems work effectively out of the box (like the Dell studio 9000)? We'd like to be around $1k for a PC, or is it futile? Alternately, would a midrange macbook pro run maya effectively? Thanks for any thoughts.

Check http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/pc/item?id=13583898&siteID=123112 and look at the workstations. For far less than the cost of a MBPro you could get a Dell Precision T3400. Just make sure to get the better GFX card and skip the Quadro 1700. Less than 2K is doable, 1K? Not really.
