    it will be fine... and I'm sure that ram will be quite helpful if you are doing large models.

    but just make sure you have less than 16 cores with hyperthreading or 32 without.

    so that's probably getting quite limited now if you need dual cpu's to get that much ram.

    appreciated, Chris! Which brings up the next question: Will RC run on Windows Server 2008 R2? As thats the only alternative to Windows 7 with support for that much system memory Im afraid..

    it works on Windows Server 2008 R2, you can try it with the Demo: www.capturingreality.com/Product#Download

    however, you will need to install some things explained here: https://support.capturingreality.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001524071-OS-and-hardware-requirements

    Will do. Regarding the GPU, besides using two devices, and one dedicated to calculation only, will it make more sense to get a quadro P5000 with 16gb memory or a newer/faster one like the volta with 12gb "only"?

    nar i find that gpu's don't scale as well in rc as something like gpu rendering. for this reason i don't really worry about the 3 gpu limit in rc. as its a bit of a waste to go more anyway.

    so less more powerful ones is better.

    also ram is not a worry. never goes over about 2gb. and you'll be wasting money on quadro's.

    also you'll use all of them for calculations. 

    i would probably go 2 x 1080ti or latest titan. really it just about cuda cores rather than ram or anything else.

    Why it's important to make sure that there is less than 16 cores with hyperthreading or 32 without? 

    How about Intel i9-7980XE ? It have 18 cores and implemented Intel Hyper-Threading Technology.
