Hello Everyone. Hope I've posted this in the right spot.
My computer is dying and I am looking to upgrade. Before I do so, I would like to know if there is anything in particular that I should look for in a computer and monitor, that will be used mostly for Digital Photography. I have not settled on a PP software program yet, but would want something that would be capable of using the latest version of Photoshop, if I ever get to that point.
Right now I am looking at a package with a Dual Core 2.33 Ghz processor, 6 Gb Ram and a nVidia GeForce G210 graphics card with 512MB dedicated memory, DVI and HDMI ports. I'm hoping this should keep me going, but please let me know if there is something else I should be focusing on.
I have not decided on a monitor. Does anyone have any suggestions as to types, brands, features that I should be watching for in a monitor. I am looking for minium 20" max 25" and do not want to spend more than $500.
I've also been considering hooking the computer up to an LCD TV (same sizes and price range). This would be a nice space saver, but I'm not sure if it would give me the best quality for computing.
Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. I'm still researching, and hoping what I have now holds up until I find the perfect solution.
