I am about to buy a new system for use with Avid/Photoshop/After effects.
I am looking at a system from Armari http://www.armari.com/custom.asp?SysID=841 with the following upgrades.
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Processor
1280gb of hard disk space 4 x 320gb Seagate Baracude Sata II
There is a graphics card upgrade to the PNY QuadroFX 15000 Pro 3D PCIe x16 for £161, but I don't know the performance benefit the QuadroFx cards have. Any advice?
I have chosen to go for a Quad core processor as an article I read says they are a lot faster than dual core http://www.digitmag.co.uk/reviews/in...m?ReviewID=686
However is there such a noticeable difference in the real worl?
There are two versions the Quad Q6600 and the Quad Extreme QX6700. Does anyone know whether there is a significant performance benefit betweent these? It is an £80 upgrade.
Finally I have found a Belinea 22" Widescreen LCD Monitor for £210.31 inc VAT from overclockers.co.uk http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=MO-006-BE
This seems great value when compared to the Dell monitors, and has very good reveiews. Can anyone see any reason not to go for this?
