Poor teacher needing to upgrade and I have been doing the newegg, cyberpower, digital storm apple dance for too long now and need some expert advice. My head is swimming in regards to nm's, ram, HD, Cuda, PS...etc. I have built four systems with three GREAT successes but they were for games and general work. I have been making short films and short animations and my HDs are filling up, my render times are too long for my comfort and I do have a lot of crashing with CS4 and would love to move up.
