will just more ram shorten my rendering times?
I have a computer with the following specs:
-MSI KT4V ATx
-AMD Athlon 2400+
-512 MB DDR
-ASUS V9560 (GeForce FX 5600, AGP, 128 MB)
-Maxtor 80 GB
-Samsung Syncmaster 913v
I agree, it's running old...
I don't know very much about computers and would therefore like to know of you guys: if i buy more RAM, will that significantly speed up my renderings? Or do i need a new cpu too if i want to get serious improvements?
A related question about Alias' ImageStudio (i know, it's not Maya, but i couldn't find a nice forum and thought i'd try my luck over here...): I downloaded the trial version of ImageStudio, just to check it out. It freezes during test rendering, but it works fine while rendering from renderqueue. Does this have anything to do with my "shortage" of RAM? If so, why doesn't it resort to virtual memory then?
