Computer Specs for video and Photo editing.
« on: June 20, 2016, 11:56:35 PM »
I've been buying camera for years and been shooting with jpeg so my "time forgotten and forsaken dusty pc (literally) is not up with the job. My interest on photoshop , IR photography, photomanipulation, shooting raw most of the time, plus 4k video editing need a completely fresh and latest speed and capable PC. I don't think I will buy an apple. I will only processing off line as I am a hobbyist. Process some photo ,edit some software, make copies for families .Post in FB but then most are stored for possible retrieval in the future. Some will may make its way to competition or sharing with you. NO paid shots...all gratis. I would like to do it in the fastest way possible. Of course some few will be just my camera and cellphone but I am not into that really..working an art needs a computer that is up to the task.

Please share your rig. Whether you bought it or a DIY.

1) Processor
2)Mother boards (please specify the chip set ie like Z97, etc)
3) Memory size
4) Software on windows platform( like vegas, Adobe premier CC)
5) storage including backup...I am not familiar with hardware based RAID.
6) Graphics card (GPU). I hope it is affordable these days.
7) Monitor (IPS)

I can assemble , disassemble and repair any computers but I am really out of the circulation after leaving PC gaming 15 years ago. I appreciate your help. I have a list that I researched but I am not sure about their performance. Thank you.

currently working in a small architectural firm here in singapore and we rely heavily in CADD/revit software, 3d rendering softwarse (Lumion), photoshop for editing, and transfer and file sharing of 3d files ranging from 40 to 200mb for a single 3d file.

the one im using at the office is about 3 years old with the following specs;
DELL optiplex 990
intel core i5
32 gb of ddr3 ram
2gb nvidia quadro k2000 graphic card
Dell 24 inch led monitor (its an HD monitor but not 4k ready)
main HDD is 750GB SATA drive
2 x 1TB SATA hard drives are also inside the chassis 1 serving a a backup..

above pc can handle a revit program, a 3d program, a photo editing program, surf the net, do emails and a lot more without a sweat primarily not because of the cpu or the graphic card but more so because of the large memory.. this was ordered directly from dell with the above higher specifications on more memory, hdd and a dedicated cadd graphic card..

my home pc is a lot more older it was a DIY unit with the following specs;

i have 2 desktop pc at home which i use almost at the same time;

the 1st unit is;
core 2 duo cpu (really need to upgrade this)
16gb of RAM
NVIDIA Quadro card K2000 2GB memory
1TB SATA drive
i'm using a 47" akira HD tv as the monitor for this unit.

the 2nd unit is;
core 2 duo cpu
8gb memory
Nvidia gaming gard with 1GB ram (a very old entry level gaming card)
3 old SATA HDD that was from my older pcs
19" DELL monitor

why i have 2 desktop pc at home is because i can never do anything on the 2nd unit other than surf the net, download torrents, and play some online games..

the main unit at home i use for watching downloaded torrents, doing autocad drawings, photo editing and very minimal 3d program..

the most important right now for me are;
the highest memory you can get
the biggest display monitor you can use
the biggest storage space you could afford
and the the fastest internet connection (not sure if this is even feasible in ph) i normally download 4gb 1080p movies in less than 30 minutes..

i would like to ADD..
at home and at the office i do not ON the anti virus program (the one that came together with windows). i never installed any 3rd party anti virus or anti malware program as i  find all just eat up all the resources in a pc. This is not advisable, but i can live with the risk since i always have a back up of everything in a removable drive and i never store my financial info in the pc.. if i already sense or see that my pc suddenly becomes sluggish, i just do a fresh format but this never happen very often (twice a year is already bad).

iMac Late 2013
3.4 GHz Intel Core i5 processor
8GB 1600 MHz DDR3 memory
1 TB Fusion Drive
3.4 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 775M

Late ko na nalaman na pwede ka din pala mag assemble, Hackintosh. Same specs, running OSX, for a fraction of the cost, or atleast half the price of what I paid.
