My old notebook won’t last much longer, I imagine, so I guess I should start thinking about a new PC (I’ll go with a larger LCD screen and a desktop PC this time). I’m clueless about processors, memory, accelerators etc., so let me ask this:
If you were building a PC with frequent Photoshopping in mind and wanted it to be able to have scores of hi-res pics open at the same time, perform complex processes like liquify and so on, what setup would you pick? Do I need something like a graphics card or accelerator, or is an excellent CPU enough nowadays? :help:
I’m looking at peak performance within an ordinary person’s budget, preferably under $60,000 or so for the whole system including monitor. Reliability and longevity are also desired.
And as an afterthought, if I wanted to plug a VCR into the computer so I could convert old tapes into DVDs, what kind of equipment would I need? And to get good stills from DVDs and videos?
Any advice? Thanks!
