merry christmas

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I was originally a PC user but then got into the graphic design industry which is run by Apple. I bought a Macbook Pro in 2007 for over $3500. Last year it died on me. I will never go back to Macs I have always like PCs more. This week I built my new rig and purchased Adobe CS5. We'll have to see how it works out.
I'm excited to start overclocking and will be looking at an aftermarket CPU cooler in the near future!

Merry Christmas

Good to see you've escaped Mac (though I've never used one LOL).

I use a modest imaging program, but it was killing my last system which was pre Y2K. I just built the new one last month.

Welcome to OCN and merry xmas
post #8 of 27
Welcome to the party. Nice build!

I hope that you'll find, as I did, that photoshop runs just fine on PCs and they are a whole lot cheaper than Macs. If I can be of any help, PM me.

Welcome back to the PC, unfortunately, you should've gone with an Nvidia card for CUDA like the GTX 470 or GTX 570.
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...-bit,2770.html

My sig rig was specifically built for video editing and graphic design working with CS5.

This is a great card for the price:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...13&Tpk=n470gtx

$245 After Rebates, it runs cool and quiet and will dramatically increase performance in Photoshop, Premiere, etc.
