I'd like to build a very fast computer mostly for processing Lunar & Planetary images which were taken in AVI form through various telescopes I own. The program used is Registax, which stacks thousands of images over top of each other.
I'd like to go with a 6 core machine or?
Any one have any particular thoughts of a cost efficeint CPU & motherboard combo with such speed and where to get it?
Besides blazing speed are there any other considerations I should look for for this type of application?
The setup will also incorporate Photshop as the final software to complete the images.
Lastly, apparently a 7200 rpm drive is usually call for for avis , but is a 10,000 rpm unit more attractive?
