How can one isolate and determine the weak link in their system?
Such as, is it the camera's minimal lines of resolution or mega-pixels that determines the quality? (And what are acceptable specs?)
How much of the end-products quality is dependant upon a high-end graphics card? Does one software look better than another, is it bells and whistles, or does versatility account for the price disparity?
Does the machine's capabilities only allow faster operation, or does it have a say-so in the final results?
