Re: PC for Games/Media and Work?

SSDs have been around for several years now, so theyre not too new. They should last as long as a traditional harddrive. If you dont defrag regularly it may slow down some, but it will still be alot faster than traditional HDD. SSDs are kinda expensive though, so people usually install their OS on ...

Re: PC for Games/Media and Work?

An SSD(Solid state drive) is a relatively new type of hard drive with no moving parts, and is alot faster than tradional hard drives. This means your computer will boot alot faster and applications will start alot faster. Performance difference. Sorry for the late reply. So I saw the video you link...

Re: PC for Games/Media and Work?

Thanks. Btw, memory is the same as RAM right? Sorry for the dumb n00b question, I'm not that tech-savvy. :oops: That depends. Some people (read companies) will classify RAM as "memory" and some will classify your HDD space as memory. Usually, however, they'll list it as something like, &q...

Re: PC for Games/Media and Work?

However, 3DS Max and other modeling software require an enormous amount of RAM for rendering (as well as all the others) so 8-16 GB of RAM should be just fine for non-industrial purposes, as stated before. So, let's say the animations I make are 4-5min.long max, and I want to use some 3DS Max plugi...

Re: PC for Games/Media and Work?

The only thing that speeds up rendering and what not (that doesn't necessarily improve the quality of your games) is RAM. However, most computers now-a-days come with 8-16 GB which, unless you're rendering an upwards of 1,000,000 polygons, should be plenty. When I said rendering I meant for my prog...

Re: PC for Games/Media and Work?

The best specs you should get for running games?: The best hardware available. But what about for work? Because I've heard that even if you have great specs for games, there's some some hardware you should have in order to run other applications more faster and efficiently (like Photoshop, Sony Veg...

PC for Games/Media and Work?

I'm thinking of getting a custom PC. But I want one that can run games/watch HD videos at optimal quality (without lag), and can also do a better-than-average job for running work-related programs (i.e. Microsoft Word, Photoshop, Sony Vegas, 3DS Max & other Autodesk products, etc.). Can someone ...
