Hello All -
I've been doing graphic design (print and web) for many years now; the box I've been using is seriously beginning to die after almost 4 years of up-time and I know I need a replacement.
I've been scouring the web about what I should get, but there's a lot of conflicting opinions. I am NOT AT ALL techical, but I've compiled the following spec and would LOVE to have the opinions of WebmasterWorld members as I've always found the opinions here sound.
Bottom line is that I need something fast, fast, fast and of course stable. One problem is that I live and work from the Philippines, so trusting the locals to build me what I need is very hard to come by.
One 80GB SATA2 HD - for XP OS ONLY
Two 120GB SATA2 HDs - One for Print projects, One for web projects
One 300GB SATA2 external (in case) Firewire USB - to backup the two 120's
• Dual Core Processor
• Firewire capable
• SATA 2 capable
What Motherboard maker would be suggested?
ViewSonic 23" display (VP2330wb)
What graphics card would you recommend to drive the above display?
2 GB Ram (DDR 633?)
Samsung Dual layer DVD R/RW
All recommondations are greatly apprecaited.
