New Computer
show user profile  Jock
Alright Guys,

Do people know the names of somewhere decent to buy a new computer from, built for the likes of 3dMax. I dont fancy building another one myself because although the last one went well, I dont have a great deal of time and could do without the hassle. I'm looking to get some prices from people who specialise in the industry like Boxx for example though they are the only ones I know of.

Thanks

HP used to offer a comparable machine to a Boxx workstation but I think they discontinued that line.
Maybe Dell?

I still like building them :)

I had a bit of a mixed experience building my last computer. I quite enjoyed putting it altogether but at the same time It was pretty nerve wracking knowing that a slight mistake and i might ruin a £1200 motherboard. This time around I want to buy one and just hit the on button :)

yeah, they look great, the computers on the link i sent have the option for one, but always also come with a normal HDD, do you have to have a HDD aswell as a SSD, or can you have 100% SSD?

SSD tend to be very small, so in my current rig for example theres a 120GB SSD for operating system and important programs, then 2 other normal drives at 1TB each to hold everything else such as libraries, business and personal files.

Why would you want to take out the fun part of building and configuring a new computer setup yourself? Its like the best part of getting a new computer! :D

Overclockers is where I tend to get my parts if i'm building or the peripherals, and in fact the computer i'm using at the moment is from there but its more of a gaming rig that was bought in a rush because the computer before went kaput and was in the middle of a few jobs.

just a quick question as i might be getting a new home system (well only home system now)... when you go on websites and they have a "games PC's" section... that's the section we are interested in right? I don't play pc games, but the specs of the gamer pcs are the same specs we need for 3d stuff?

I wouldnt say they are the same no, though you could no doubt get away with it as I have for the past couple of years.

I mean if you want something thats really the spec thats specific to us then youre looking at a workstation from the likes of boxx or the others that are mentioned in this thread. Or of course you build your own like I had before the one i'm on now.
