Default Thoughts on My PC Specs

Some of the specs on my PC. It was custom built, no so much with gaming in mind, but more for animation work.

Would love feedback on what you think of these specs. I'm thinking of making some more upgrades soon.

Intel (R) Core (TM) i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40GHz 3.90 GHz
16.0 GB RAM
64 bit OS Windows 8.1
120GB SSD
1tb HDD
AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series
ACER 24" G245H Monitor

Good all around PC. If you wanted to max settings in games all you would need is a better GPU and maybe a PSU. Otherwise, good stuff.

Sweet thanks. I'm hoping to get a second monitor soon so I can duel screen. It'll be really handy when I'm doing animation work to have two screens set up.

Dual monitors are handy for just about anything. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have at least 2 screens.

When working on 3D models and creating textures for them using the UV maps, found it increasingly helpful as well.

Being able to create something on photoshop and see its effects being reflected on my 2nd monitor helps me get textures just how I want them, with small tweaks until its just right.

What software were you using out of curiosity? I model and animate in Maya.

You should post some of your work on here. I'd like to see it.
