I spec’ed my last Novatech with help from the forum, and it’s been brilliant. Almost ten years old and still does the business. Sadly, the power supply blew up and I don’t think it makes sense to patch a machine that old. So! Questions:
I do Photoshop and 3D modeling for work, and play AAA open world games for leisure. Does it make sense to start from a game build, or a graphics workstation build…or are they both similar in spec?
I replaced the graphics card with a Gigabyte GTX 970 two years ago. Is that still an okay card? Mine sounds like a 747 taking off…
Is Windows still limited to 8 gig memory, and if so why does anyone buy more? Are there programs that can use more?
Anything else I should think of? I’m looking to spend in the £1,000 range. Happy to spend less, willing to spend more for more performance. I like to buy the best machine I can possibly afford and then ride it until it dies of old age.
Thanks again for your help!
