Best computer for animation
show user profile  tom356

I work in 3dmax, flash and after effects..
I want to get a new computer pc but not sure what is the best for what i use it for..
Can anyone give me some feedback on what I need to get so it performs well..

After installing all my software and the big file made from using these programs it tends to slow my computer down..

thank you

Spend your money on a decent gaming rig they tend to work well for graphics. Try and get things like USB 3.0, SATA III, an SSD for your main HD, a half-decent graphics card ( not a Quaddro ffs and it doesn`t have to be a really expensive card either ), and ideally around 8-16Gb+ ram.

Also make sure it`s an Intel, most of the CPU`s with a K at the end are good..

if you can get it for 1k its a good deal, I'd evaluate it to around 1200 if the warranties are transferrable
