Wondering if the awesome community here would be interested in giving me a few pointers for the following build.
Budget Range: 1300 - 1500 CAD
System Usage from Most to Least Important:
- CS5 (photoshop, aftereffects, premiere, illustrator)
- Adobe Lightroom for photography (working with RAW files)
- some 3D apps
- finally some good ol' gaming.
Parts Not Required:
Preferred Website(s) for Parts:
- NCIX.com, newegg.ca
Country of Origin:
Parts Preferences: I'm thinking AMD has the 6 cores, and it's a good price point. The intel would be good for performance, but I just don't have that kind of money.
SLI or Crossfire: No. Not at the moment.
Monitor Resolution: 1900 for one, 1440 for the other. Will up when I get bigger monitors.
I would like a quiet-ish PC, somewhat future proof.
The Antec Case / PSU Combo (+$40), the MoBo / CPU / RAM (+30) Combo, the GFX upgrade (+20) and 3x SSD size upgrade (+$95) add up to $185 extra....or $60 over ya $1,500 budget while providing substantial upgrades, an extremely quiet system and much more capability for expandability..
