Hi! I'm a photographer looking for some information on what the best display and setup would be for me. I run Lightroom3 and Photoshop CS5 daily to edit photos, I need a computer that will be fast and efficient so I can batch process photos etc. and do some light graphic design work.
Recently my laptop died since I'm a nut and spilled coffee on it. I have a backup desktop but it hasn't been used in awhile and i dont know much about it other than its an HP Pc compaq7900 with an intel core 2 duo -- it needs repaired so i cant figure out if i should get a new desktop or just work on this desktop i currently have and possibly add more ram or upgrade my processor - any advice would really be appreciated - i also dont know what type of graphics card is best for my line of work?
hm my budget is tight - i broke my laptop and am using a backup desktop - so i need to "fix it up" a bit or else buy a new desktop - I was thinking a desktop would be a better option for me because I keep breaking laptops. I'm a photographer, and i have no idea what i need as far as computers go - I'm pretty lost !
