It's been so long since i've posted here, i've definitely been out of the loop. I am looking to upgrade my computer, but everything is so new that I am unsure of what to get.
Here are my current specs:
Asus p5dWdh-deluxe 975 (old as SH*!)
E8400 @ 3.6 ghz
2 ghz DDR2 800
2x 36 gig raptors in raid
300 gig sataII HD
Basically all I use my computer for now is for Photo Editing. I use Photoshop, Lightroom, as well as other editing programs. My goal is to build a system that will just SMOKE my current one, and will enable me to run through pictures and edit them extremely fast. My main question is this: if I do update with the following components, will I see a drastic increase in speed and performance?
Here is what I am looking at getting:
Some p55 MOBO
4 gigs DDR3 memory
the new 80gig Intel SSD hard drive
Radeon 5770 (remember I only play counterstrik but just once in a great while)
So please help me out. Explain if this is a good jump to new components, and if you personally would recommend any specific models for these relative to my needs.
