I am pursuing a Graphic Design degree, and am moving into uni dorms after summer. I'd like to get a really nice desktop computer to last me the next 2-3 years. To handle Photoshop and the Adobe Suite, digital painting, lots of multitasking (I like having lots of browsers/documents/etc. open), and I like working on big canvases with 600+ DPI. That kind of stuff.
I'm clueless about computer-related things, and I've looked through the threads in this forum to try and find some info to help me. But it all means really little to me, so I would appreciate some help? Requirements, recommendations, etc.?
From what I've read, I've picked up the following things to look for:
- IPS Display, high resolution (rec: NEC EA232wmi)
- i5 2500
- 8GB RAM
- Dual-core processor
Other than that... I have no idea? Thank you for any help,
