Use a UK Render Farm or build one myself?

Hi there,

I'm a lone animator working on a BIG project in 3D Studio Max. 26 Episodes of 5 minute animations in High Definition (1920x1080 25p).

Within the next six to twelve months I'll be hitting the render button and taking a well deserved holiday.

Okay, here's the question. Is it cost effective to build my own render farm, if so what do you recommend and roughly how much will it cost?

Alternatively, do any of you recommend out-sourcing to some other company to do the render farming and will it render properly? (Mental Ray, Final Gather, Hair and Fur, Cloth, Water, Clouds, etc.) Roughly how much will that cost?

Thanks in advance!
