I'm an Animation student and am about to begin classes at the Academy of Art University in September. As the title implies I'm wanting to build a custom PC primarily used for traditional/2D Animation. Im totally clueless as to what to look for when it comes to processors,RAM,CPU,graphics/video card,motherboard,hardrives,etc.I would like something top notch but nothing astronomically priced if at all possible. I'm not 100% sure as to which specific programs we'll be using,however I have head talk of Flash and Toon Boom. Other than that I think we may do a little involving 3D,rotoscoping,editing,encoding,etc. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. Will try to find out some more specific info and post later.
