So I have come into a decent some of money that all falls under the disposable income flag. It's not enough to invest or do anything with, and there is nothing that I really need it for so I am thinking about buying a beast of a computer. So, if you guys are able to help me out with a few questions, I would really appreciate it.
1. CPU's: I don't do any video/photo editing and only some very light CAD work. It's not worth spending any more money than a nice high end quad core right? Last I remember, admittedly this was a year or two ago, games don't even regularly use more than two cores.
2. SSD's. The EVO's are still the way to go with SSD's right?
3. RAM: 16GB of the fast ram that will fit in the board will do the trick I believe. I know that more than 8 is not really needed most of the time, but there are some occasions running some of my poorly made engineering software 8GB is not quite enough.
4. Graphics Card: This is the big one. So I have a line of a cheap 290, but I am putting some serious thought into to picking up the newest shiniest jazz. I am thinking about picking up one or two 980's (Like I said, a decent chunk of change) This leads to the next question.
5.. Monitor: So as I am picking up new computers, I feel like I should finally upgrade my monitors. At the moment I have 2 old 1080 21 inch monitor. To get the best use out of the new card, what kind of monitor should I be looking at? I will need to pick up two of them, as at this point I can't go back to a single monitor in terms of productivity, but I will only be playing on one.
So, if anyone is able to help me out I would greatly appreciate you advice. Cheers
