Hardware, Embedded Systems ExtremeTech explains how to build a rendering farm out of old computers. "At its core, a render farm is pretty simple: Seven or so machines on a network, a network-accessible storage location, a rendering app, and a queue manager. Putting it all together should be equally simple, right?"

No offense, but that screencap is cartoonish at best, and nowhere near as good as what Far Cry manages in realtime. If it's taking him 52 hours to RENDER 800 frames of THAT - He needs to get something better than a Pentium 75 and Pov-Ray.
