I was hoping someone here could help me out. I have upgraded PCs and will have help, but when I build my own PC, I always end up spending too much. Asking on the sites to the products below, I get generalized or million different answers. I need to build a server/General use PC that will:
1. Run SAGETV server.
2. Provide storage
3. Run Photoshop at full resolution.
4. Rip blurays/dvds.
5. Do some CAD.
6. Backup pictures. I can get videos re-ripped, but can't replace pictures.
7. Backup other computers.
