I am currently attending school for Web Development. My computer that I have now is VERY old (Toshiba L305 Satelite Laptop) and can barely run any of the programs that are needed for school all at once without slowing down. These programs include:
Adobe Dreamweaver Adobe Photoshop Temporary SQL server (local) Web server (Not heavy, but not light either)
I need these up all at once to make my coding more proficient. The web server being hosted off of a laptop is what mainly drags my computer down. I have quite a bit of money from student loans that can help me get a new computer so I built this:
My Notes ( excuses ;p ):
I chose AMD because I heard that they are good at handling multiple processes at once over Intel (not sure if it's true, just what I've heard).
I wanted to make sure I was fine on RAM so I went with 16GB rather than 32GB. I don't even think I'll need the 16GB, but it's there just in case if the web server gets a little heavy.
The video card is so if I want to play a game or two, I don't have to worry about dumbing down the graphics. I won't be playing Crysis 3 or anything! just an mmorpg here or there.
The case is staying! I love this case and I have wanted it ever since I saw it. It is spacious, quite, and lots of room for upgrades in the future.
Don't care on the optical drive, I just closed my eyes and clicked.
Operating System is staying as well. I love Windows 7 ultimate. BitLocker is a must have for me.
Apart from my notes, am I spending too much? Am I going with too high end of parts? Also keep in mind that I do not have a monitor, keyboard, or mouse added to the list. I will be going to stores to see those first hand. I don't buy it unless I can try the mouse/keyboard or see the screen of the monitor.
