Which computer should i buy?
I'm coming from a Macbook Pro 15 inch (2010) with these specs:
- 2,53 GHz Intel Core i5
- 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
- NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M 256 MB
This was a laptop i used for study. However, i pushed it pretty far.
I'm a graphic designer who loves film, photography and Motion Graphics. But i like to edit this material as well. I've been using After Effects and Premiere Pro on my Mac, and I have as well tested Maya 3D.
You can imagine how much time my mac used on rendering....
I'm trying to establish a small business - meanwhile maintaining my studies. I'm looking for a PC/Mac that offers smooth editing and fast rendering in Premiere Pro and After Effects (also in 4k).
Right now i'm looking at a PC with:
- i7-5960X Extreme Edition LGA2011-3, 8-Core,3.0GHz,20MB,
- Crucial DDR4 2133MHz 32GB
- ASUS GeForce GTX TITAN Z 12GB PhysX
- HyperX 3K SSD 240GB
Is this overkill for my needs? How about the 5760 CUDA cores in the graphics card - are they worth the money?
My budget is set to a semi-maxed-out 5k iMac. (Don't know if the iMac will fit my needs - probably not in the long run).
Link to the pc above (yes, this is a "gamer"):
I Hope you can help me.
