I’m getting behind again, but I’m back to say that my computer building is now complete, and the system has been gratefully received by the new owner. My budget was £600, for a computer that was primarily to be used for photo editing. With the budget, and the purpose, you can get a very good idea of where the money is best concentrated – whether it be processor/RAM for encoding, graphics cards for gaming, or even large volume storage for multimedia. In this case, I thought it was best to invest in a decent processor and RAM, and an SSD to provide the fastest machine for the money. The graphics card is still discrete, but it cost much less than I initially thought. Because gaming wasn’t an issue here, there was no point investing heavily in a monster card. Having said that, the Radeon HD 6450 is not too shabby, and still can play modern games on lower/medium settings. This is just a brief update, as I’m heading off down south until Tuesday for a campervan trip. I’ll have more in depth information and photos then.
