Time to budget build - Page 2

post #11 of 19
I have to second the 16gb. It isn't 100% needed in most cases, but, it's working its way there. Ram is cheap right now. Might as well get 16gb while the getting is good.

Used is great, but make sure its from someone reputable. Thats the only caveat.

Great advice to follow regardless it being Used or New. Personally, I have and will continue to only buy used PC parts from here, I personally stay away from craigslist or even eBay. Community here is great, normally get the best deal compared to eBay, and everyone is normally honest and will tell you exactly what your getting. I just picked up my used 290X a couple weeks ago and not regretting it.

Ahh I think the promo might have closed already. Shipping though is pretty butts to Hawaii since NewEgg only does 2 day shipping which costs. As for what's left in the budget, I'm spending somewhere around $600.

Ahh I've been thinking of upgrading the processor to an i3 to get more performance. I have run Photoshop pretty minimally with an i3 and 4GB of RAM before, which was extremely painful ;_;
I don't intend to do any 3D rendering though. Most of what I do for art starts with Paint Tool Sai, and that runs extremely light. Photoshop is mostly for editing and final touches.
