Re: Getting a new PC
PP Mguire, first off, this is NOT an attack, or mockery of any kind. you and several others here have helped me a great deal over the last couple of years, and i greatly appreciate that help. i just have a couple of things i want to point out and question. 1) while i agree on the i-7 6700, should he buy an over clock cpu w/o an over clock board? 2) while I am happy with the graphics performance of the Intel 530 graphics, i am not doing any kind of 3D designing. is he going to be able to do what he needs without a graphics card of some sort? and 3) since he is using this for work, he may need to save his work for months before a client actually approves his work. to me that screams 2-4TB mechanical (in addition to the SSD) to simply store things on. of course he could simply get an external when he needs it later. and lastly, i do not think he can transfer his copy of Windows to his new system, can he? if not, he will need a new O.S. as well. of course, he could always go Linux, if he is familiar with that. i am not trying to drive the price of his build up, if anyone understands a tight budget, its me! i just see a couple of empty spaces that i think need addressing. what do you think?? if i am all wet, by all means let me have it.
