Getting rid of current
heap o junk desktop and buying bits to build a custom computer with help of a friend:
After getting into the publishing business, I’ve found I’m required to work with different programs more often. One of those that my current lump doesn’t like at all is InDesign, being as files can take quite some time to load up and change. I also struggle a bit when using high quality pics on Photoshop.
Here’s what I have at the mo:
Acer *does a quick hex* Aspire E360 – MB72
AMD Athlon 64 3400+
250GB HDD (not that you needed to know that but hey)
nVidia GeForce 6200LE 256MB
1GB internal memory
My advisor mentioned that it could be the processor that is causing the problems and that with a custom built pc, this is what I should be looking at.
We went through the components last night and we got to a price of: $1,500 (USD) for a decent system that would do all I wanted (and more). This included an XP package and the chassi too.
Any ideas, thoughts, suggestions from those with way more experience than me?
