I'm slowly piecing together parts for my 2nd PC build.
We take 10'000's of pictures each year and lots of video. Currently I am storing these on multiple ext. HD's and a 4tb HD connected to my current PC ( online ).
The intent of this 2nd PC build is a PC to store these files on a seperate PC ( offline ) No risk of virus and malware etc...
*I do not intend to do crazy editing etc... Maybe just photoshop.
Is there anything particular I want to look for in a CPU or APU to maximize my file transfering etc..
Basically we will connect our phones, camcorder ( rarely used ) and ext. HDD to the PC to stransfer files.
I understand USB 3.0 is the way to go. And windows 7 does not support USB 3.0 ( unless I add or download the right software ). In this situation would I want to install win 10 or win 7 and the correct software?
Anything particular I want to look for in a mobo to maximize the intent of this PC?
Suggest RAM size? ( I do not intend to run multiple programs at a time )
Suggested CPU / APU?
Thank you everyone.
** I am leaning towards AMD as my other PC is an intel and just want to try something new.
Currently I have. AMD A6 7400k and Gigabyte F2A68HM-M mobo. I got these @ microcenter this past winter for $50 combo!!!!!
