[B]I have been trying to decide on a new pc for a long time, I will be using it for mainly adobe suite programs such as photoshop, illustrator, Dreamweaver and flash as well as occasional cinema 4d uses and web design. But could really use some help!
However I'm on a bit of a budget (aroundÂ£450-Â£500)
I was thinking of getting a computer with these specs:[/B]
Case Built In
Venom VE10 Gaming Case With Side Window and Blue LED Fan
Motherboard Expansion Slots
1x PCI Express x16, 1x PCI Express x4, 2x PCI Express x1, 2x PCI
Intel I5 4th Generation Haswell
Intel Core I5 4690K 3.5ghz 6mb Cache 4th Gen Haswell
CPU Clock Speed
CPU Max Turbo Clock Speed
Standard Intel Cooler
8GB DDR3 1600mhz Performance Ram
Hard Drive Size
120gb Kingston V300 Solid State Drive
Samsung 24x Sata DVD Writer
Corsair CX600 80 Plus Bronze Certified 600w Power Supply
No Operating System
Front / Top Case Ports
2x USB 2.0, 1x USB 3.0, 1x Headphone Jack, 1x Microphone Jack
Rear Panel Connections
1x PS/2 keyboard port, 1x PS/2 mouse port, 1x serial port, 1x HDMI port, 2x USB 3.0/2.0 ports, 4x USB 2.0/1.1 ports, 1x RJ-45 port, 3x audio jacks (Line In, Line Out, Mic In)
[B]However I was thinking of adding a few things to it:
-2x 2tb hard drives as I need lots of storage.
-2x8 gb 10600r Samsung ram (so that would give me 24gb) can I mix this ram with the ram the already comes with the computer?- then a graphics card but I have no idea what sort! I have this Asus Radeon vx5450 1gb at home, but I'm guessing ill need a better one?? and if so which one??
If someone could help me decide if this setup would be suitable for my needs and recommend a cheap graphics card that will optimise performance with these specs please get back to me! I would be so grateful, I have a headache from looking at so many different computer parts!
would any of these cards work and be up to the task?
