I want to upgrade my rig. I'm heavier in 3D Graphics and I'm running Maya, Blender, DAZ 3D, Photoshop,etc. My"monster" is about a year and a half old and I want to finish this project between now and September. I'm buying a Mac Book for mobile projects. but I use my PC when at home. I'm graphically and musically heavy. I don't not plan to game on it,,,maybe in the distant future so it's not a priority. I'm not ready for OCing yet, but I'm reading up on it and getting some tips. I know I'm going to add a Blu-ray drive and I'm thinking of getting an SSD to move my programs to. I don't want to really spend more than $600, but it all depends... So many choices! Any help is appreciated and sorry about the bad posting earlier.
My current build is/ What is have handy:
AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition
ASUS M4A785TD-M EVO
Corsair 12GB (1x 8GB and 1x 4GB 1333)
ASUS 24X DVD Burner
1 x ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM
Kinda wish this was around when I first built the current rig. I spent exactly THAT!
-I just bought the 8GB RAM too...
I would like to see if there's anything good under the AMD hood, too. I don't need top of the line, but I want a good comparison. I'm really just starting out in 3D and don't have a good feel to know what I'm looking for the next great build. Can you or anyone help?
