in there as most of you know there were three categories:
the low price, mid price, and high-end system.
in that marathon they mentioned that they built those system to handle games
and there will do a specific marathon in the future
the computer I need is really specific, it does not aim for any games.
the only thing it needs to do and do it as best he can, is run various graphic software's for image manipulation (large raw formats), 3-D modeling and rendering, video editing.
I'm striving to build a computer that will be dedicated to work only.
I'm thinking more in the range of them mid price system, my budget is not so high it's more of a student budget
what would you change in that system, that it better fits my needs?
Would you have left something out?
Your opinion matters, I regard you as professionals
definetly a quad core, like a q6600 for photoshop 3d programms. 2gigs up to 4 gigs of ram, depending how enormous the things you work on are. cheap videocard, like radeon 2400hd with passive cooling for quieter operation. those are the most important things i think. also i would recommend a western digital hard drive.
