Seems a bit overkill just for developing... It's not really all that demanding... You won't need 16gb ram, but you won't save much either by buying less because it's so stinking cheap these days.

Thanks jryan388.

As my mobo supports max 32GB RAM, I wanted to avail the max Memory. But my local vendors don't have 8GB modules yet, so I am using 4x4GB only.

I don't know why I don't get my PC fast. While others who do a test use on my PC, they say it's giant for development works, but somewhat I think I am missing here.

Is my GPU OK?

PS: In our locality, we are facing HDD price hikes, as Bangkok has manufacturing issue due to recent flood. The HDD prices are hiked 3 times higher, and SSD also not so available. I think I will have to wait for SSD & more HDD. Currently using 500GB Hitachi HDD.

What kind of development are you doing? Are you using Adobe products? Are you simply text editing? Are you using windows or linux? I've done quite a bit of rails development, and it sure doesn't take a pc like that... All I use is ubuntu with emacs and it's fine on a cheapo dual-core with integrated graphics.

Hello jryan388,

I am using Win 7 64 Bit with Adobe Products & MS .NET 2008.

Well, I've heard that nvidia cards speed up CS 5.5, but you have to do a bit of a hack to get the less expensive cards to work. At least, I've heard it's possible. I'm guessing if all you use is dreamweaver, though, it won't make much of a difference. That computer should be fine, don't worry.

My Memory shows 686 Mhz speed in CPUID test. But my Memory modules are higher. How to set for higher performance? Or this is normal?
