Thanks for the link. Before moving on to pricing I'll need to freeze my requirements and components I want. And for that I'll first need to understand the meaning of specs/features and capabilities of the components and what they will achieve.
The same questions have been posted in different threads and categories because each is linked to multiple components and I'd hate to land up buying a mismatched configuration eg. a processor having a particular capability/feature but the motherboard wont support it and vice versa.
I'll post details of the my current system, applications I use, bottlenecks I'm facing now, my wish list and the features I'm looking for in a separate thread.
