The thing is that, I find the PS3 interesting only for rendering. I guess that for 3D modelling it won't be so nice.

The setup would be a standard x86 workstation with an OpenGL optimized card for 3D modelling and a PS3 just for rendering, so no need for the GPU.

By the way, I just remembered that Indigo and probably Kerkythea wouldn't work since it is x86, but Yafray may be cool, and if there's a way to make it use more than one core on multiple core processors, then it mustn't be difficult to setup it in a PS3 for use as a render workstation taking advantage of the Cell processor which already demonstrated its power in aplications like Folding@home.

I think the tesla solutions of nvidia aren't that bad either. http://www.nvidia.com/object/tesla_computing_solutions.html
