Hi Peeps, hope you can help me out with a purchase i need to make. I rencently have got deeply involved with a program called Poser 7 which is a character / art creating program. It is very processor heavy as i have found out to my dissmay. I quite often spend 4 to 10 hours maybe, character designing and when finished i start it rendering to only discover the pc cant handle the memory needed to complete the process. I can do small renders but i want to expand now into larger scenes etc, so i need to update my pc as it is 6 yrs old which i know is VERY old in the pc world. I have my eye on the Packard Bell iXtreme 2613 which is an Intel Quad 2 Core Q6600 Processor (2.4GHz,1066MHz FSB, 8MB Cache) Genuine Windows Vista (R) Home Premium 3GB Memory 500GB Hard Drive Plus lots of other bits, now....im not that hot with specs but this seems quite a powerfull computer concidering i am runnig a AMD 1.47ghz 512ram and a 40gig Hard drive. Which is the basic spec to run Poser 7 so i know i am on the limit with my pc, i just want to buy something that will work for 2 - 3 yrs before its out of date too. Thanks ever so much for reading and i appreciate any comments, Regards. Vale.
