thanks for ur insights! great to have a pro to comment and bring things back to perspective. its indeed true that i can just use a "slower" comp to do my stuff. but i am pretty impatient and i hate to constantly worry abt my pc and frusting abt its speed. and i dun wanna waste time waiting for stuff to load and stuff. hence i guess its alright to make an investment now(hopefully once and for all)
thanks for enlightening over the many stuff that i shd take note of. and yes, thanks too for highlighting that i already have budgeted an amt and am willing to maximise it.
i am not starting a debate on whether or not i shd be fixing a comp that costs so much when i m just a hobbyist or whatever. fact is, this is my budget, and i just want SUGGESTION on how to maximise the amt.
this is a TECH suggestion thread, not abt whether or not i shd do this or that. thanks.
its meant to help others when they wanna build a pc. $3k shd be just abt right to spend on a pc to do editing i wld think.
so for the tech informed,
