$2500 Workstation Tags: New Build Systems Last response: January 16, 2013 6:19 AM in Systems Share TheCheeseling January 16, 2013 6:12:58 AM Can I make this build any cheaper, and still keep the same performance and quality? I am going to be working with After Effects, Photoshop, cinema 4d, maya, 3ds MAX, and some other programs. I would like to keep the 64Gb of RAM, the CPU, GPU, and Motherboard. I'm using this computer for work but that doesn't mean i'm not planning to get some friends very envious. I need to keep it under $2500.
