I would like your advice on building a PC for learning 3d animation and graphics suite. Please guide me regarding the hardware i should choose.
4. Graphics card
5. Cooling system (if its required)
6. Cabinet (optional)
7. Power supply
I already have these following so i won't buy new
1. Hard disk : 500 GB SATA, Western digital
2. Keyboard and optical mouse
3. 17 inch CRT monitor from samung
4. LG DVD re-writer
I intend to run the following programs
Adobe photoshop cs5
Corel painter 12
Xara Design suite
Maya (latest student learning edition)
Lightwave learning edition
Please note that i will be using this as my main system as my previous system (5 years old), is very slow and has some problems. I will also be using this new system for internet browsing, watching HD videos, playing 3D games and other entertainment stuff apart from learning.
I would very much appreciate if you take your time and effort in enlightening me about the requirements that would meet my expectations.
