I would like to get your opinions for a mid 2010 Photoshop Workstation (a year on from the article posted by Kopykat on 13th April 09).
I have the following bits I'd like to reuse:
- Cintiq21UX + Dell 30inch 3008WFP
- Nvidia Quadro FX3800
I would like the following features
- 64bit Windows 7
- Expandable RAM capability with the motherboard
- Quiet environment!!.. Don't want to hear fans whining.
I would like some guidance on the following.
Motherboard with SPDIF interface so I can reuse my Digital speakers?
Dual HDD's (envisage a smallish/fast HDD for Drive C and OS plus 1TB none RAID for Drive D,.....I have a network RAID for backup and longer term storage).
Sensible Quiet case, (don't need exotic kryptonic metal than glows green when tickled with a ruby laser!)
My ideal budget would be around $1000 which am thinking should be doable given no display or video card is required, but am willing to review ROI for investing more.
