  1. Hi Guys,

    I'm confused about what kind of computer spec i need. I've decided that i'm going to buy a new computer for work, which will entail 3d cad software for example 3ds max, adobe illustrator and photoshop.

    I found a website where you can select the components you want and it will tell you whether they are compatible or not. Problem is, other than replacng a hard drive and cd drive i haven't done much in the way of comp building so i'm hoping some of you guys won't mind having a look over my selections and giving me your opinions and assistance in making sue i don't make a right mess of it all!

    Looks really good. The CPU and the mobo may be a little over kill for the intended applications. Good Luck and let us know how things go.
