Component failure of my 6 year old workhorse finally prompted my decision for a new PC build.
Intel i7 with no overclocking. Samsung 840 SSD X 2 for Linux Mint17/Windows7 OS. Raid 9 to plated harddrives for storage.
MS Windows is a new experince for me as my photography is now inexorably dragging me to PS !.
After a 12 year absence from W$$dows I note nothing seems to have changed ?.
Another change from my usual build practice was to fit an optional CPU cooler.
Nothing to do with extra cooling. It does however come with a much bigger fan, turns
at a much lower RPM and is....so....much quiter. Well worth a little extra cost.
My question for AP'ers: Without any previous experience using PS I have no practical
way to gauge how much RAM I will need ?,
