I'm a college student who is passionate about photography(won several amateur awards).
Unfortunately my DSLR is 36MP(D800) and the files are 80<MB
Now the problem is I really haven't done post processing for all my photos so far but I've started winning world renowned awards out of nowhere..So instead of processing like 1~2 photos with my laptop(Macbook air, no intention to change this, an awesome laptop) And I've always loved photogrpahy but I had no intention to become a photographer due to my good grades at school and my "Bright future" as my Asian parents say.
But now i think I can turn my direction around.
So I need a new computer.
It needs to do below listed things fluently.
2.Watch 1080P movies(for my mom)
4.Play League of Legends without lag.
5.Have USB 3.0 ports
From my research, I think I need a quad core CPU with at least 8gb or 16gb rams.
I do have an OS, I do have a hard drive and a SSD from my old 17' Dell laptop.
So I need processor, ram, motherboard, case, graphic card.. I think that's about it.
If anyone could help me out with a decent budget, that'd be great. And what's good site to order parts for really cheap price?
Oh and I think it'd be awesome if the computer price was below $600. That's my max. budget and if there's no significant difference, I don't mind going $400~$500 computer for a slightly lower spec/performance.
