How much RAM are you shooting for ?
So... I have decided I want to try to build my first computer. I know a pretty good amount about computers compared to the normal person, but not nearly as much as most on this site (from reading peoples posts). I thought I might try to take a stab and see if people out there could help.
This computer is NOT going to be for gaming it is going to be for work purposes. My work is 100% on a computer. I am an architect and use it all day. I use Auto CAD, Photoshop, Illustrator etc... At any given time I have 5-10 programs open all working together, surfing the internet and listening to music. The computer I have now ALWAYS freezes and it drives me crazy. Sometimes I lose info I am working on.
I was wondering if people could respond with their recommendations on parts and how to configure the system. The only requirements I have is I would like to have 2 computer monitors. Since I have so many programs open at once this would make it easier. I will also be using Windows XP SP2.
Thank you for your time and advice in advance!!
