So i got a new PC, and i tried to stay below or at $1,500
the main function would be Photoshop, so for the scratch disk,
got a Solid state hard drive and didn't care much about 3d capabilities,
nor the quad core processor.
Photoshop can only use 3 Gigs of Ram in 64bit, if i remember well,
but i didn't go for the 64bit OS so 4GB ram was the way to go.
first test on it was trying some crazy
scaterring + dual brush+ none spacing + texture
BRUSHES at 170dpi , and i gotta say it was very smooth.
I usually work everything at 72dpi cause i like the speed,
with this machine i can finally upgrade to 170dpi for everything
and keep my speed addiction.
Altough, somehow i fear this Rig is not that stable,
yesterday it frooze meanwhile i was painting this image,
just frooze, never happened to me with windows XP
and the same version of PS been using for a while . . . only time will tell.
