    FYI: My New Windows Computer Specs

    If you are interested in upgrading to a high-end Windows computer for Photoshop etc, here is what I have come up with.

    My 5+ year old Windows computer was struggling with Photoshop (and everything else) and my 6 TB backup drive was full, so I decided to bite the bullet and upgrade to a new computer. A friend of mine builds high-end computers, mainly for gamers, so with his expertise + advice from folks on photography Facebook sites and websites, we came up with these specs for my new Windows computer:

    Processor: Intel Core i9 10900
    Motherboard: Asus PROART Creators Motherboard
    RAM: 64GB Corsair DDR4 3000MHZ RAM (and space to add another 64GB in the future)
    GPU: nVidia QUADRO p2200 Workstation GPU
    Two 1 TB SAMSUNG 970 EVO m.2 NVMe SSD (1 for software programs and 1 for recently uploaded photos (and occasional videos)
    Data Drives: Two 8 TB Drives (which appear as a single 16 TB drive)
    Power Supply: Corsair 80+ GOLD certified 650w RMX PSU
    Case: Corsair Carbide 275R Case, Black
    Windows 10 Professional

    I will have my files continually backed up externally. I still have to work out the best way to maintain an offsite backup.

    I am now in the process of copying all of my files and software from the old computer to the new.

    Cheers

    Rex

    Ameerat42, that's the plan! :-) I was getting frustrated at how slowly my computer was processing my newly downloaded photos. And with my new R5 camera, I could be shooting 45 MB photos at a rate of 20 frames per second. It takes a computer with grunt to manage that seamlessly.
