Questions about specs for my first computer
I need a new computer. I had been running out of space on my last one whilst working in Photoshop. I filled up the scratch disks often. I also want my 3d software (Maya,ZBrush etc.) to operate seamlessly.
I do not play games, but read a good review of a type of gaming computer that I'm thinking about adding to: http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/system/...wer_Black_Pearl
I added the following and would like any advice or direction on putting together a machine that can handle my major Photshop files and allow massive files in softwares such as Maya, ZBrush, Arch GIS and AutoCAD to run smoothly. Also I'm not sure if I want overclocking ability?
