3D animation systems need as many pipes as they can cram onto that video card. Specialized video cards usually don’t support the latest visual effects for games, but boy can they push those polygons through the pipeline. 3d work can push the best CPU to its max with high poly scenes and test renders so look for a good CPU and lots of ram and fast hard drives to prevent bottlenecks.
