My existing PC which is four years old is creaking at the seems.
For a number of reasons I need to remain in the Wintel system area but I have got out of touch with processors.
My main requirement is to input film scans in Vuescan, then post process in Lightroom and CS6. I am currently running XP and of course will be upgrading to Windows 7 64-bit premium.
Any suggestions for processor, RAM size and Discs?
I am assuming that I would benefit from a minimum 8GB RAM, especially as the memory management in W7 now means it can be utilised.
I am also attracted to using one of the new SSDs for my OS and possibly LR4/CS6.
Any advice would be gratefully received.
