Hi, Gang, I’m seeking the guidance of [H] gurus, please: I need to design and procure all the parts for a dedicated graphics creation and video editing workstation. This will be a new type of build for me. I’ve built lots of PCs and dedicated distributed computing machines (BOINC and Folding) computers – GPU based, CPU based, and multi-CPU based (4Ps), but never a graphics processing beast. This is for a friend who is a professional graphics creator who needs a good machine at home. She is highly creative and is skilled at what she does; but she barely knows the difference between a computer case and a hard disk drive (if that). She is essentially hardware illiterate and probably always will be. So, the computer must be rock solid reliable and must be Windows-based. She will not be gaming, benchmarking, overclocking, or hardware tweaking. I need build her a turn-key solution that I simply hand over to her. She cannot spend more than $2400. She has no parts in her current home system that I can re-use. The system will be the entire computer, including the computer case, and a new Windows license, but not the peripherals. (We are handling peripherals in a separate process. I will be supplying her an external HDD/SDD caddy with a high capacity drive for backups and large files storage.) Anticipated usage scenario is graphics creation and processing and video editing, with a need for significant multi-tasking. She typically opens and uses several applications “at once.” I asked her if she needs double precision or if she uses any math-based applications such as MatLab. I’m pretty sure the answer meant no. Here are the applications she uses and must continue using: Adobe Creative Suite Photoshop InDesign Bridge Illustrator Microsoft Office (not extensive Excel spreadsheets, but everything else) Internet Email She frequently has several of the above applications open at once, switching between them. She works with all types of image files, include very large TIFF files. She does some “modeling” with “drawing tools” but does not use CAD tools. Please spec out a computer for us, including Win 10 (64-bit, of course). I am not beholden to any manufacturer or brand. I need what will fit the budget and be the best solution for the needs I’ve summarized above, please. I consider it very important for her to have two internal drives – an SSD for OS and programs and a 7200 RPM high capacity HDD for storage. My friend will open an account and order the parts I tell her to from Newegg. BestBuy online purchase/pickup locally is also an option for the computer case, as we avoid massive shipping costs (we’re in Alaska). Amazon is an option, but I prefer Newegg due to my long-term satisfaction with them.
