New PC time
« on: December 02, 2018, 14:13:38 PM »
Sadly I think my old pc is slowly diying ,no shame in that it's 9 years old (ancient by todays tech) so I'm looking for a new one possibly one of those all in one screen types ,relatively fast i7 generation processor and preferably an ssd drive with a 1/2TB harddrive for storage .Had a look at pc world /currys not that impressed TBH just want something that works out the box with no mucking about price range £2000 and no apple suggestions as they are overpriced .

Always used Dell myself.....plenty of options around customisation on their website.

It goes without saying that the more memory you can afford the better... ;)

You are a very wise man ,my initial plan was memory ,memory ,memory32 gig should be more than enough, followed by a an i7 cpu now looking at an i9 cpu and studio quality soundboard the graphics card isn't a major issue  as I'm not nor ever will be a gamer so whatever is onboard is fine . storage is the main sticking point atm ,but I'll resolve that ..

Surprised to hear that you're not a gamer given you're prepared to splash £2K - what do you intend to use it for, then?

My own desktop PC has 16G RAM, but I doubt I ever use more than 6G.

Mostly used for mastering recordings via Adobe Audition and all the other bits and bobs that that pursuit entails .I've found that lower amounts of RAM slow it all down to a crawl hence more RAM is required that plus a faster cpu should speed things up .. Never really saw the point of gaming as a hobby .
