My budget for the new computer is:
What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)?
Just need an overall family PC, but WOULD be awesome if it could also do games.. last PC was from 8yrs ago, runnin win xp sp2, graphic design and 3D animation would be great too..
What software do you intend on using on the computer?
Autodesk Maya 2008, Adobe Master Suite CS3 maybe CS5 or 6(whatever the latest version is)
Do you play games? If so, what type of games?
Never played games on a PC, but would like to play Assasin's Creed III, Farcry 3, Crysis 3, ect, ect..
Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it?
Typically tend to close out programs but then again i'm working with max ram of 768mb's..
Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?
NO, but I would definitely like to start.. again my PC's are so old,the hard drive is at 70Gb's..
I just desperately need a new PC as I am getting left behind.. lots of stuff no longer works on IE7, nor can I update past IE8, I lost Itunes access a while back.. can't connect my friends Iphone 4's or Gen 4 Touches to the pc as its not recognized..
again I am just getting left behind and so desperately crave a new PC..
let me know players..
