Monitor Resolution: I'm not sure yet, still looking at my options. Probably between 1600x1200, 1680x1050, 1920x1080, 1920x1200 somewhere. Looking at 19” to 21”
Additional Comments: The main focus of this computer is 2d - painting large files with many layers for print, batch editing photos - and it has to do that really well, as well as having many programs running at the same time. I would like this computer to be able to run some autocad programs such as Maya, but it wouldn't be for production work, just learning the tool so it doesn't have to do it that well really, just minimally to get the hang of the program.
QUESTIONS: Can anyone help with completing this build or suggesting a comparable one? Parts that run quiet would be pretty nice. Of course I would like better value versus overkill performance.
OK, but if you are buying the 650TX thinking that it is the quiet one you have seen in reviews you may get a surprise. It is no longer the Seasonic-built 650TX but is actually made by CWT... you have to look at the label to see the actual model number is 650TX-C. It's not reviewed but while CWT is a quality OEM they are not known for quiet operation.
