Default New build..

Hey,

My dads a photographer and he nees a new comp to edit pictures and then burn them onto disk..

He will be doing a LOT so i tihnk a Dual Core would be the best option..


It needs to be able to run programs like photoshop ect quickly.

600~ if someone points me in the direction of the parts i can build them...

Btw we would need a quick DVD/CD writer aswell...

Thanks

I totally agree with ssc456 on those parts. I have the Conroe 6600 myself and I do alot of photoshopping and video-editing; I definately don't regret buying that CPU. Gave a massive boost from my old P4 2ghz.

vat...? is that tax...? shipping maybe...? maybe the shipping and tax would push it over his budget...?

anyway, it was a good build and should be close enough to the budget...

I think thats one HELL of an overkill. I would think an E6400, 2GB Ram. Also, if you where going to be doing a lot of photoshop, i would reccomend RAID1 - You wouldnt want to loose your clients work. So, with that, i would reccomend:


Processor
A Good C2D Processor
http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/112708 - 113.34 (saving 71.13)

Motherboard
http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...uct_uid=121397 - 67.73

RAM
http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=98710 - 119.98 (one of these, saving 119.98)

Hardrive (2 of these)
http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...uct_uid=111515 - 62.30 (A Loss of 42.65)

DVD RW Drive (A Very Quick, Cheap & Good Quality DVD-RW Drive)
http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/126228 - 20.85

Graphics Card
http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...ct_uid=1250188 - 50.84

Case
http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...uct_uid=105235 - 29.99

That would total Aprox 527.19, which is a saviing of about 125, vs ssc456's 650~ build. But, dont forget vista! (Well, personally, i would get XP 'till all the bugs etc are ironed out of vista....

He always keeps backups of the pictures on disks so theres no way of loosing them or accidently getting deleted as he finds lots of people decide they want more a few months down the line..

So the DVD writer is a good one yer?

he makes a fair point do u have a copy of xp ?? or do u need to buy that aswell ? if so u may want to rethink my suggestion

and yeah most dvd writers are pretty much the same nowa days you cant really get a top writer unless you go specialist which is like industrial ?? but as far as in normal computers go the writer is good

I would suggest the 20X Writer, it's only 6 more, and faster.

why four gigs in the first system?? that is complete and utter over kill. otherwise that original looks pretty good. I'd consider a little higher end video card for the picture rendering, but its not a must.
