Question Dream PC to Design Websites

Hey guys,

I'm already seeing that my computer is lacking some processing power here an there. I open 2 or 3 Adobe programs, then I got Skype running, MSN, Firefox and other 3 browsers, my Thunderbird, etc., everyday and sometimes is just too much for the computer.

I'm currently using a Pentium D 900, 3GB of non-buffered RAM, Windows XP SP3, 2 300 GB non-raid HDD, and I don't know what else I could include here.

What do you recommend? My motherboard is fairly new and it is expandable to Intel Quad Core.

k.

'etc' ? What does that mean? If you're looking for a computer that can run an unlimited amount of applications at the same time, you're out of luck

Hello there,

I have worked building all sort of computer systems for the past 9 years. I can just go ahead and build what I think is right. However, and if this is too hard for you to answer (just kidding), I need some suggestions as what might be an ideal computer setup for website design (if any in particular). I'm thinking of a HDD raid setup + a quad core CPU, and some server strength RAM. However, would RAID be ideal? Will a Quad Core work fine with the Adobe applications? What sever type of memory should I buy? Memory RAM coolers? Case temperature?

Thank you for your post anyhow,

k.

Brother,

I don't want to design better sites by getting a better computer. I guess you didn't understand neither. Just as you would need some computer power to run a music recording studio, you would also need a good setup to run a few applications flawlessly. It seems that Dreamweaver experts don't have a clue about computers (or SEO).

Thank you, but I think this might not be the best forum to ask!

Take care,

k.

It's true, I don't know much about computers, it's not my field at all. Did you ask a SEO question I missed? Just provide a link to the thread and I'll look at it.

This is a great thread, considering all you really need to build a website is notepad! I think that the technical requirements for running DW will be on the box, no? Otherwise, ask Adobe.

Just trying to get some help here. Don't you guys tell me that a Pentium 2 computer will run DW CS flawlessly. I'm working with video, Adobe products (not precisely the lightest software available), and also running Skype, making phone calls through the cable, etc. RAM memory sometimes lags due to over load, or heat. But, it isn't the only problem.

If you don't know about computers that's fine. I just got a few "smart ass"replies on top that simply didn't help.

I apologize for, even though it is true for the most part, about designers not knowing about SEO.

Any help?
