and anyone else who knows.
Does GSA/CB use GPU power when processing / rendering webpages / posting / solving captchas / scraping / etc?
I am turning my old system (i7-3930k 6 core - 32gb ram - still a beast after 6 years - but recently upgraded to 8700k) into a server and am debating between using an old graphics (which has really high power consumption) or getting a $50 GT710 off Amazon and save $250/year in electricity expenses.
I would assume that there is some GPU involved in rendering (if GSA uses some sort of acceleration), but also know that the process itself is majority CPU-based. So what do you think? Should I use my (really) old, power hungry GTX580, or buy a low profile GT710 for $50 and save on power / less noise etc?
