Graphic Design Computer

This was taken directly from – Build Advice For Graphic Design Computer

The link is directly to PCPartPicker website. Interesting .. have been playing around a bit but .. here is what this guy chose/suggests. Not promoting any of this by any means (I’m not knowledgeable enough for that) .. just a place to start looking around .. but everything I could check out .. checks out. I made a few minor adjustments in the original list.

  1. Sounds like a really nice system Ed. I am using an HP Pavillion HPE series (H8) with an AMD 6 core processor, decent graphics, and a terrabyte of storage, also love dual monitors!
    It’s not the hottest rod out there, but it was a decent value for the money and a HUGE upgrade from my last machine.
    I used to buy my machines piecemeal and build them myself, now I am just too lazy, plus it still takes me about two weeks to get all the software, files, passwords, updates set up on the new machine!

  2. Yeah .. the part I hate about getting a new computer is just that .. getting it like you want it. I haven’t a lot of choice though. My computer (the one I am typing this on) has just shut down .. several times in past weeks .. the best I can figure is when I am running my graphics program, Sketchup, Chrome with a bunch of tabs open .. in other words when stressing the machine out. I’m guessing it is overheating .. so .. I need to go with a new system. I may drop the hammer on this come payday .. after paying bills first .. that’a like a mantra with me .. pay before play! 🙂

  3. WOW!!! That is a long cry from the machines we were playing with back in Erlangen days. I still love to build….but have moved to lappies as my primary computer. One thing for sure Traxx… don’t cut corners on power supply. Would like to see pics once you get the beast built.

  4. There are so many ways you can go with a graphics computer. I have used and continue to use both MAC and PC. Having been a print art director for many years, I’ve needed powerful machines that can help render 4 GB+ photoshop files at times. Now I’m running a 3.2GHz Quad-core Intel Core i5, 27″ iMac with 16GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GeForceGT755M 1GB GDDR5 for the video. Additionally I run Windows 7 on the iMac for testing my web sites.

    The best part of PC is that you can build a machine, cheep, that meets your needs. The biggest difference between both platforms are the video card outputs however, since you will most likely know what you are doing, setting the correct color shouldn’t be an issue. I purchase a lot of PC components from NewEgg and PC Outlet for my Home Theatre PC.

  5. We are a gaggle of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our
    community. Your web site offered us with helpful info to work on.

    You’ve performed a formidable activity and our whole community might be thankful to you.
